that's how many days since i have
hugged my best friend. because four hundred and fourteen days
ago she went home. you might be confused right now, cause if
she went home couldn't i still see her? not exactly. her
home is in Greece. that's where she came to America
from almost six years ago, and now she's back there again.
it came unexpectedly, we only knew about 2 weeks in advance. we
used to think she was coming back but we both gave up on that
now. i try to save every cent for a plane ticket to see her but
its pretty expensive and my family doesn't have that kind
of money anymore.
her whole plane ride to Greece i was in panic because i
couldn't talk to her and i prayed she made it there okay,
which she did. a month after she was there her computer was
taken away and i couldn't talk to her and i cried for weeks
thinking something happened to her, but a few days later she
called me saying she was fine. we try to still be close but its
so hard when you are four thousand eight hundred miles apart
with a seven hours difference, but we try to make it
I'm telling you all this because
it's changed my life. i don't get in fights with my
other good friends anymore because we've realized that time
is too precious to be mad at each other for stupid reasons.
don't take any time you have with your friends for granted
because one day they could have to leave and you might never
see them again. today, is the four hundred fourteenth day i
haven't seen my best friend, the closest thing i have ever
had to a sister. tomorrow it will be four hundred fifteen days
and then four hundred sixteen. i won't be seeing her soon.
so be thankful for everyone moment you have before its too
please read this is you love your
friends as much as i do
