There's always that one person who can make you smile without a single word. It isn't necessarily a boyfriend/girlfriend or even a family member. That one person, for me, is one of my closest friends. I've known this person since freshman year in high school, but never really talked until this year. Wish I had talked to this person more. Definitely would have helped with all of the drama that went on the first two years of high school. And believe me, that's when I needed a smile the most.

I'm not trying to say my life is total crap or anything. That's not true. I have two parents who love me and keep me safe. I have three best friends who I would do anything for. I have friends who can get me to laugh. I have a roof over my head. I'm pretty damn grateful.

But this one particular person has gotten me to smile after I'd been crying. And through a text! I had been having a pity party about the last couple of years, letting everything build up, when my phone had alerted me to a text. I wasn't going to answer to it or even read it until I saw who it was. Now in hindsight, yes, I had (maybe still have) a small miniscule crush on the guy. So yeah, I opened it. And through puffy red eyes, I read it. I don't even remember what the text even said. All I remember is smiling… and replying.

I don't think I was happy just about talking to the guy that I had a small crush on, as much as I knew talking to this guy, definitely put a pretty big smile in my eyes.

Now, I'm not exactly one to get mushy and shit. So I wouldn't expect much more of this "deep revealing cleansing" flash backs.

The point of this one page is that if you don't know who your friend is. The friend that can make you smile when all else fails. If you don't know who that one friend is yet, go fine 'em. 'Cause it's well worth finding.
