This is what a true friendship looks like. RP @misschrisness: "You all are used to seeing her on my page this way. Glammed and beat and posed and fly. And it’s all very true. It’s what we do. She is this. That girl. My fly best friend.
But I don’t share all the moments. Like, the one of her hair-bonneted, slightly crusted, barely woke eyes that came for me a few weeks ago when, at 1 a.m., a three-word text peeled her from her sheets to where-the-hell Dallas, because my date had gone AWOL. No directions. No instructions. And her, crazy-faced. But, she was there.
Or, what she looked like the night when, after I crossed the threshold of our apartment door and collapsed from yet another blow to my heart, she literally picked me up and took off my shoes and put me in my bed and cried with me until things started to make sense again.
Or, how she—and we—look after we wrestle awake before the sun rises on Tuesday mornings, to pray over and with each other and for everyone who trusts their tears and fears to her heart.
Y’all don’t see those moments.
I live them though.
And they're what make her flyness actually matter.
Best friend, I’m hopeful and prayerful this year - when we’re sharing and wiping and shedding tears, that they’ll only be in celebration of your eyes opening and reopening to the brilliance and beauty that Abba reveals to you about yourself. And your heart. And all the ways the world is better because for the 34th time, you’re making your way around it.
Happy birthday boo♂️ #34everyoung#browngirlbesties#itsyobirthday"
