Excuse the fan girl excitement but we are actually going to go and see Jason Mraz, at the Royal Albert Hall (of all places!) excitement doesn’t quite cover it… beyond excited doesn’t cover it either. His new album – I completely adore! Every song on it, is amazing and I find myself listening to the album over and over again. This is kind of the inspiration of this post, I went to blog about one of the songs on the new album ‘ best friend’ and how the lyrics relate to my life and my very own best friend… but the bitch beat me to it 😉 I logged on, to find this truly beautifully written post about me that had me crying and laughing all at the same time, nothing I can write now could even come close to her post about me … always has to go one better 😉
But I am going to carry on regardless, because y’know I suppose she deserves to know how amazing she is too! With a little help from the words of good old Jason … Sarah here’s my thank you to you, also from the bottom of my heart!
Thank you for letting me in
I’ve never had to pretend
You’ve always known who I am
It is so refreshing to meet someone who accepts you for who you are, no need to pretend, no need to make an effort, no need to be someone who you aren’t. Everything I am, you accept without as much as a query … and for that I am truly thankful! And yes, you know me better than myself sometimes, my voice of reason and my double. I often wonder how it is possible to be so similar … yet be the better version of me!
And I know my life is better
Because you’re a part of it
Without a shadow of a doubt, meeting you is one of the best things that has ever happened , the pinnacle of the last 2 years and something I will forever be eternally grateful for. I can’t imagine my life without you in it now, and hope I never have to!
I know without you by my side
That I would be different
I know that I wouldn’t have got through this past year without you, you have been my rock and the one person who I can solely rely on, through all of the shit that me and my family have been put through, I know that through it all you were always there. You gave me the strength to be strong for others I needed to be strong for.
Thank you for all of your trust
Thank you for not giving up
I trust you with my life… well that is until this weekend, when your incredible ability of winning the card game ‘bullshit’ or cheat (when you’re playing with children) means that I will never be able to trust you again 😉 But regardless of that discovery, I still trust you completely, and thank you for not giving up, even when I haven’t been able to see a way forward
Thank you for holding my hand
I’ve always known where you stand
Metaphorically speaking or not, through every single tough time in the past couple of years, which let’s face it we have all had our fair share – you have held my hand- and made me aware of where I was and how to get through it – my very own voice of reason!
Yes, I feel my life is better
So is the world we’re living in
I didn’t quite know how many amazing memories could have been created before I met you, through the times we have genuinely lost the plot ( tent antics, and driving tuneees) and crying with laughter, well if that doesn’t make the world a better place then what does!?
I’m thankful for the time I spent
With my best friend
More than thankful, Nuff said!
Thank you for calling me out
Thank you for waking me up
I thank my lucky stars that I was the one that was lucky enough to take such a special place in your life, and I promise to never make you regret that choice!
Thank you for breaking it down
Thank you for choosing us
Thank you for being oh so logical when I have been in my little clouds of panic and chaos, you always know what to say, you always know the right thing to say
Thank you for all you’re about
Thank you for just being you
Thank you for lifting me up
Thank you for keeping me grounded
There’s many a time in this past year that I could have lost sight of reality and of what was important, you have kept me down here on planet earth!
And being here now
Most importantly, thank you for still being here, for still being you and for not going anywhere
Thank you for being the loon that I get to laugh with …and at 😉
