Everybody needs one

Today was just one of those days. We all have them, those days when it seems like even the butterflies are out to hurt you! And the culminating moment of horror was when my voice began to sing notes outside of the key to a song I have known my whole life. Not in the shower, may I add, yes, at an audition. Not to mention I sounded as if I had been smoking since the age of three because my body finally decided to get sick after many months of good health.

FLASHBACK…I am 12 years old, standing on the stage at the state pageant finals, humming. Yes, I said humming… I had completely spaced on the words, and stood there humming for the entire middle section of "Part of Your World."

So today, as I exit the audition room I began telling myself, "what am I doing? Am I honestly majoring in this? Is it too late to switch to family science? …man I suck at life!" But, after a talk with my mom, and some sugar I began to feel…well…at least not suicidal!

I continued through-out the day wallowing in self pity. Until my sweet friend Sydney sent a text telling me to read a post on her blog.

Reading it made me forget everything bad that had happened today, and as I read the post with my mom she turned to me and said, "Everybody needs a Syd in their life."

I couldn't agree with that more. Sydney always knows what to say when I am feeling sad, or angry. And there is nobody that can make me laugh like that girl!!! My goodness does she have a sense of humor. The older I get, the more I learn to appreciate the importance of good friends. Although she lives in Salt Lake, her friendship has stayed loyal, and has grown immensely. Everybody needs a friend they can completely be themselves around and know that at the end of the day they will still love you, even your faults. Through my hours of late night talks, movie nights, laying on the tramp harmonizing to hymns, balloon incident in the go-cart, and antique shopping I have truly discovered what friendship is.

This beautiful, creative, talented girl is so full of life and love! Her presence always brightens my days.

She is truly a gift from God.
