For this weeks The Girl Between The Lines post we are to talk about what tangible item we have that is intangible to us. Again another thinker! Hayley and Lauren what is up with you making me have to think?! No me gusta!!!
After lots of thought I finally figured out what item I wanted to talk about. Currently my most intangible tangible (mouthful much?!) item is the ring my best friend got me. I hold on strong to items sent to me by friends. Especially when the reason they got it for me is so sweet and meaningful.
I had been planning a whole post on what this ring said and what better time to share it than now?! The inside of my ring says "I refuse to sink". Unfortunately I don't remember it, but Lauren says I said this to her once (that doesn't surprise me). The fact that she remember that and got me the ring to represent that means the world to me.
We have never really done gifts before. We just weren't those friends. We didn't need to get each other gifts. But after being separated by several states for the first time in 4 years, I just wanted to get her something for Christmas. And she wanted to get me something in return. She could not have done better!
"I refuse to sink" Those words say so much. Lauren and I have had a crazy friendship to say the least. I'm not really going to go into that because most of it is not my stuff to share. Just know this girl showed me what it meant to be a true friend. I have failed her more times than not, but she took me back. She loves me none the less. And for that I am thankful.
But in life and in our friendship, I refuse to sink. I refuse to let life take me under. I refuse to let anything hold me down. I will persevere and I will make it work. And all of that applies to my friendship with Lauren. She is one of my best friends and I do not know what I would do without her.
