My best friend from high school left me a message last night that she had her baby, a little boy named Drew. I’m so happy for her I’ve been crying and I just wish I could hug her but she lives pretty far away right now. My whole day is just filled with happines for her and I know she is going to be the most caring mother on the planet and her little boy is so lucky.
I’m so lucky to have been friends with her since 7th grade. When I moved to the new town, from going to private school to public, she was the first person to introduce herself to me. We didn’t become close friends though until we both went through our first bad breakups Junior year of high school and ever since then we’ve been through so much together. Sadly we’ve been pretty far apart for years. She went to Florida for college and ever since has lived in another state. I regret I haven’t made more of an effort to visit her when she’s been only a handful of hours away but I hope I can find a way to visit her this summer.
I miss her and I can’t wait to see a picture of her little boy. I can’t wait to hear what it’s like for her to be a mother, I will drive her crazy asking questions all the time I know. I can’t believe how fast life is moving along and how we’re all growing up so fast. A girl who I used to cry with because the boys we thought we loved didn’t love us back has created a new little boy of her own.
