One of my best friends, Brooke, wrote a children’s book for me in college. Nothing published, just a little gift for me. Because.
*Melissa’s my name, Missy a nickname, I answer to both.
I cherish it. Not because it’s about me, but because it shows how much she knows me. She pretty much sums it up (well, it’s a little over the top but it’s kiddie lit).
For me, It’s the story of how beautiful a genuine friendship is. The beauty in connecting with someone who knows you through and through, and values every bit.
Remember you have the beauty that is the essence of life and all that is natural. Even the bee, who is sometimes misunderstood because of it’s sting, is a marvel of nature that spreads cheer, happiness and love.
*Melissa is the Greek word for “honeybee.” Also? Brooke and I are both just hippies at heart.
*I’m a genuinely friendly girl, it’ s who I am. My “honey’s” not sweet all the time (ask my mom!). I’m human. Plus, that would be annoying. And fake.
*Stupid eating disorder. It ain’t over… Don’t ever say never.
Love you, Brookie!
