To My Dear Friend

Dear Anna Naomi,

I never cease thanking God for giving me the privilege of having you as a friend. Not just a friend, but also a confidante, role model, and a godly example to me. The many things we have done together have only served to make our friendship stronger. How many best friends can boast of never having had a quarrel? =)

You are a blessing to all those around you, including myself. Watching our stories unfold side by side has been amazing. What started out as the first few letters of our lives on a blank page became lines, and then paragraphs, and has now become pages and pages that we will look back on and remember. We'll remember the times we laughed, the times we cried and mourned together, the times we celebrated our friendship, and the times that are even now happening and becoming written in our books.

Anna, I've never expected you to be more than you can be, but you are so much more than even you know. I can't think of anyone who has known you and not been touched or blessed in some way. You are truly a Maiden of Worth. Your inner beauty shines out for all to see, even to those who don't know you in person. Your gracious walk, gentle manner and sweet speech are beautiful to watch. You've changed my life in so many ways and all for the better (definitely!). I will always think of your more as my sister than my best friend.

Although I have never met Anna in person, I have seen from her writings how truly beautiful she is. She has influenced me in many ways, and for that I am thankful.

Aw, Miriam, you are too sweet! Having you as a close friend has helped me become who I am, and it is only by God's grace that I am who I am. I'm definitely not perfect, and it is only God Who allows me to be or do anything. Thank you for your kind and encouraging words!
