Farewell, Reese.

Monday, May 13, 2019

  you know, two of my best friends are moving next week. These two friends are so kind, sweet, funny, and considerate. They are extraordinary! I am so sad to see them go, but they will remain close in my heart forever. 

Here they are-Reese and Maggie.

I met Reese at, of course, the ballfield. It seems that all my friends come from there. I knew she was moving to our neighborhood, but I was to shy to go up to her. Typical Ella. Sigh. Finally at one of Anna's all star games, I had the guts to go up and talk to her. Boy, was I happy that I did!

Here we are, at another hot Louisiana game! If you think about, we went on our first "bestie" vacation before we were besties! But, who would consider softball, a vacation. 

Once Reese had moved, we were always spending time together! On the second night that she was in her new house, we had our first sleepover! We loved going to the pool, the playground, and we LOVED playing with her dog's puppies-They were SOOOOOO cute!! 

Once I finally got to know Reese, I realized that she is the life of the party! When the attention is on her, she takes advantage of it! She is super funny, and always up for a laugh! Once school had started, and Reese had found a "boyfriend", I thought that she was super BOY-CRAZY! She was, but she grew out of that into a super fun, and enjoyable person!

I love Reese, and she has grown into one of my best friends! She is super funny, playful, but also super kind and loving! She is super supportive, and is always there when I need her! Just thinking about her leaving, brings me to tears!

Dear Reese, 
I know that you are leaving in ten days. That is literally torture for me to hear! You are the one of the funniest, sweetest, supportive, people I know! You are always there for me-Through the good times, and the bad. Reese, you inspire me to be myself, and not care about what people think, or say! I don't know how I got so lucky to have a friend like you! Here I am writing this, and starting to get teary eyed. I don't want you to go, but I have to face the fact that you are, and this is a great opportunity for your family. You will make new friends (maybe better 😉), and you will meet that cowboy. I have to accept that, no matter how much pain it brings me to. I love ya bestie, and I want you to know that whether you are a room away, or 1000 miles away. God is looking out for you, and I know this, because he put you in my life. I will always remember the laughs, the memories, the good times, and the bad, that I've had with you. Those are the things I want to remember. Just believe that everything will be ok, and I promise you, it will be. I am going to miss you, so much friend. You are such a important person in my life, and will always be just that.


Love, Ella
