have you met my best friend, cody?

There was something different about yesterday. I feel like I've gone through this eye-opening veil in life so many times before, and I believe those close to me will probably roll their eyes when I try to say that it's different this time, but I genuinely believe I was finally able to see things differently, and I don't think I'm the same person I was a couple days ago. I know the whole belief on the fact that "people never change" and "you are who you are" kind of thing, but I genuinely know that there is something different now. I'm a little embarrassed that I have let myself be treated the way I have. That's really not who I am, but I guess what's done is done, right? That's fine and I will take full responsibility for being so completely blind in the past. 

Okay, now that that's out of the way, I will get to the point of this post. I'm not sure if the world knows it, but I have never met a kinder, generous, or more selfless person than Cody Clay Foggin. He is the epitome of a true friend, and I wish I would have been able to be there for him the way he has never once failed to be there for me. I guess there's no time like the present right? So I know I'm done all my letters from my thirty day challenge, but I just want to dedicate my post to him, because he deserves it, and because he's been my best friend even if I haven't deserved it. 

Do you know Cody? Because I do. 
In case you don't, I will tell you a little bit about him.

He is the guy who may appear to be a trouble maker, but will always do the right thing when it comes down to it.
He is the guy who will drive to visit you when you are sick. 
He is the guy who remembers how much you love mini eggs and pick up a package of them on his way to see you.
He is the guy who will come see you no matter what the hour if he believes he has caused you grief.
He is the guy who will pay for the meal without thinking twice, and your friend's.
He is the guy who doesn't notice whether or not you are wearing make up or your hair is done.
He is the guy who will let you choose the music in the car.
He is the guy who randomly surprises you on a day you thought was going to end up a total flop.
He is the guy who will get along with all your friends.
He is the guy who avoids unnecessary confrontation.
He is the guy who could be going through the worst time of his life, but will still put everything aside if a friend needed help or simply to be uplifted.
He is the guy who can't stay mad.
He is the guy who has been hurt more than anyone I know, but has never held a grudge.
He is the guy who knows who he is, even if he forgets for a couple minutes.

{thank you} for drying more of my tears than anyone in the world
{thank you} for being patient with me while I've been figuring things out
{thank you} for being the type of person who doesn't "pick sides" (hahahaha)
{thank you) for teaching me what it means to be selfless
{thank you} for wanting to be the best missionary you can possibly be
{thank you} for being the first one to listen to my exciting news
{thank you} for pretending to think its exciting even if you don't
{thank you} for always coming back, and always apologizing even when you don't need to
{thank you} for not being a judgemental person, and for always assuming the best in people
{thank you} for putting up with me
{thank you} for tapping on my window and not leaving when I told you I was sleeping
{thank you} for always making sure I'm okay before I fall asleep
{thank you} for forgiving me more times than I can count
{thank you} for always being at my side when I need someone there

"In the end, you'll know which people really love you. They are the ones who see you for who you are and, no matter what, always find a way to be at your side."

And just so everyone knows, it is possible to go from dating to being best friends. It takes some hard work and dedication, but I know we did it and I'm so happy we did, because I just don't know what I would do without him.  Honestly.

ask me for the source. =)
