Day 29: Who is your closest or most special friend that you’ve never met and what do they mean to you? How did you cross paths? Talk about how you “met” them: Facebook, Twitter, an online support group, etc.
I was somewhat new to the “block” of Tumblr. I would write personal posts every once in a while but most of the time they were re posts. I didn’t reach out to her and neither did she with me, but we understood each other. We think we thought the same way towards life and God. We loved anything that brought out our creativity and what not. I learned that she loved film, photography and Pixar. She spoke french and loved Christian Hip Hop just as much as I did. She has a beautiful curiosity and admiration for the heart of God and his son.
Somewhere in all that for maybe a year or so, we talked frequently in messaging and public posts. Then we added each other on Facebook and then our friendship kind of grew. We aren’t best friends but we are great friends none the less. We talked, we laughed, we skyped. I feel like I’ve grown in my relationship with God a little because of her posts or messages. We talk about visiting each other and getting crunk to the men of 116 and in either sides of our worlds.
I hate that she lives so far away. There are times where I seriously just want her to live next door to me, or me live next door to her and just blag on about what ever is going on in our lives and read the bible together and soak in it’s words. But she lives in the UK.
One of these days, I’m going to leave the states and visit her and Simi. We’re going to do all the things we would have done if we didn’t live so far away and take plenty of pictures, making memories that we’ll talk about for ages.
Her name is Tosin and she is single handily the most unique person that I have been blessed to not me personally on this Earth. I seriously thank God that I’m getting to know her and that I will be able to meet hug her in the near future. I love you, T!
