Today is a very special person's birthday and I just so happen to be very thankful for her! My sweet friend Nikki deserves to be celebrated today!!
I met Nikki a year ago because we lived in the same dorm and I quickly fell in love with her personality, sassy attitude, and dance skills! She is super smart, loves Netflix, and is always down to do something. Even if that is just doing homework together so we don't have to be alone. Nikki is from Hawaii and I love her for that! She has such a different story than me, but this is so cool to me because she teaches me something new almost every day. She is so sweet and is always there to help me. Nikki reads my blog almost every night to proof it for grammatical errors and what not (except tonight that is, I wanted to give her a break for her birthday so my friend Michelle L is helping me tonight). That is so nice of her to do, isn't it? I always appreciate this because she takes her time to support me. That is not something you find in just any person.
Nikki and I have had some fun times. Like:
The time we practiced a debate with each other for Michelle. I didn't like arguing with you, but it sure was funny!
Or the time we cleaned Mariel and Michelle's room simply because we were bored.
Thanks for always being there for me Nikki! I know you are so far from home and I can't imagine how hard that is, but I admire that so much! You balance the two so well and still mange to be a great friend. You are so strong and I am thankful that you give me strength when I can't seem to find any. You are so selfless and I appreciate how much you love me. I hope you know how special you are to me! Thank you for everything, from coming places with me even though you don't want to, to supporting me in whatever I do! I appreciate it more than you know! Thanks for being my best Hawaiian friend! You are so loved!!!
As you can see, Nikki is a great friend God placed in my life! I am thankful for her everyday, but especially today! Nikki, I love you all the way to Hawaii and back! Happy Birthday my friend!
Southern and Thankful
Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love. In return, I have claimed this space to show my thanks and whatever else comes along the way. A student at Texas Christian University who loves any creative insta post, all donuts, and dress pants that make you do a double take. I pray God has a grand purpose for me and I plan to get there with a little Southern and a lot of Thanks! Join me!
