11 years ago during the month of October my life changed. Yeah I was only 6, but that's not my point ;) My mother and I were had our pumpkin bags at hand and ready to fill them with colorful leaves. We walked outside and it turned out that we didn't have enough leaves to fill up our pumpkin bags with. Across the street at the white house we could see a yard full of leaves. I grabbed my mothers hand and we make our way across the street. My mother kindly knocks on the door and a little girl and another mom walked up to the door. My mother asks the other mom if we could borrow some of her leaves. We all go outside and start filling up the pumpkin bags with the leaves. I remember shyly smiling at the little girl that was my age as we put the leaves in the bags. After the other mom invited me in to color in coloring books with her daughter. I accepted and instantly we became best friends.
I am proud to say that Emily Reitzel is my BEST friend. She is with my through thick and thin, and I am with her through thick and thin. We have been with each other through tears, pain and happiness. We have experienced many different things together. We have gone through those middle school years with the awkward and fun stages. We have now almost finished our high school years together and are starting to move onto greater things in life. We have NEVER gotten into one fight that I can recall. I have had friends that I have had fights with, and I have lost them because they weren't true friends. We can laugh at the same things. We can tell if one is feeling sad, happy or even in a bad mood. We can finish each other's sentences. We can get really excited about things that NO ONE else understand. We can tell if the other thinks a guy is cute because of the faces we make. We ALWAYS know the other one's crush because it is really hard to keep a secret.
I can honestly say that we will be friends forever. I do not know that for sure, but I have a really strong feeling that this friendship will last for a lifetime.
Thank you so much Emily for being my BEST FRIEND for all these long 11 years.I love you and you are truly like a sister to me. <3
