A Dedication Post

This post will be lengthy and deservedly so.
This post is a dedication post to my friend Nora.
You've probably seen her face around my blog pictures and such before.
Nora, is leaving for two whole months(maybe that's not a long time to you guys, but it's a long time for me) to go up to Georgia.
She's going to be a Summer Camp Counselor at this Bible camp called Covecrest.
 So, by all means, I am extremely happy for her and for the people who get to meet and know Nora!
Because I can tell you, that she will be the perfect camp counselor.
Not only is she just an overall fun person to be around, but she really values her faith and has a strong heart and love for God and is willing to do be a servant of His and do what He calls her to do.
That's a remarkable thing, people.
 Because saying you'll follow God's calling is completely different than actually doing it.
And she's doing it with a sincere heart and want to follow His will.
She's also extremely caring and an easy person to talk to and she easily laughs, so the people there will definitely love her and be blessed by her presence.
Now, that you've had a background of what she's doing, now it's time to cut down to the chase of this post...
Nora, you are an amazing person and human being and I'm really going to miss you. I'm so thankful to have a friend like you and a good example to look up to. I am super thankful for all the memories we've had and have yet to make when you get back! :) I'm glad your my Disney buddy. (You see Nora and I have watched Tangled, Little Mermaid, Princess and the Frog, HunchBack of NotreDame, and Brave together.) I'm also glad that your my arts and crafts buddy too! Whether it's print making, or melting crayon art on pumpkins, it's always a blast to do with you. You also are my fandom buddy as well. From Harry Potter, to Glee, to Disney, we've got it covered. And I am forever grateful that you also graciously introduced me to Mario Party and A Very Potter Musical. You've also been my Downtown St.Pete buddy as we've been and walked around there 3 times together:) And we've encountered prosperous creatures like the Nigel Pelicans, tasted macarons for the first time ever, sang cheetah girls really loud at the top of our lungs through the streets, and took pictures in Santa's sleigh down there. Also, you introduced me to the Amaretto Espresso Shake, which is heavenly. So, thanks for that too. :)  Your mix cd's are also the BOMB. I adore them all. We've also done some baking together! We made those yummy Thunder cookies at your house!  That was a great time too. We've done a lot together this past year. 


I suppose maybe I'm going overboard... but honestly, sometimes I think its necessary to take time and let someone know that they are appreciated and that you remember all the fun things and are grateful for them.
On top of all this though, I'm really glad and thankful for the times where we just talk too. Sometimes that means the most, because it shows that you aren't just a friend who enjoys being around to do fun stuff all the time. We also can talk about anything from light to serious and I sincerely appreciate that. You are a great listener, and a great encourager and I'm so thankful that you support the things I do and encourage me to keep dreaming too. I'm just really glad your my friend, glad we were able to create so many memories, and glad that you have this amazing opportunity ahead of you. But, I'm also really going to miss you. So, I thought I'd find a way to let you know. And let you know that I love you! And I'll be praying for an amazing experience which I know God will impact you and use you and grow you from, and I'm so so so happy for you. :)

Before I say goodbye I have three things to leave you with;

1."If you can dream it, you can do it." -Walt Disney

 2. Joshua 1:9; "Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Goodbye for now, dear Nora, but I shall see you again in two months and be anxiously awaiting to hear your adventures.
