To Emma Jane, who convinced me I am not alone

I never quite had a friend just like you.
Someone who could make me laugh,
but still made me feel it was okay to cry.

Who would send me funny things when I was upset;
and at the same time give me the encouragement I needed without just laughing it off.

Someone who I know is praying for me. Who knows me, yet still loves me in spite of it all. All the drama; the craziness; the gushing; the ranting; the raving.
You are there.

We can talk for hours about nothing, and still have fun. 

And even through all these miles, you are here for me. And when you think of the big world,
Wisconsin and Illinois aren't really that far away.

It was a chance we met. A miracle. Really. 1 in million. But we somehow made that tiny connection, which grew, and grew into friendship.

You have shown me God's love in so many ways. Shed his light into my life. 
Sonlightgirl. Really, you are! ^_^

And, for the first time the other day, I heard that song. And I was almost crying. But I wanted to save it for a special post, because you gave me one .

So here, right back 'atcha!
This my favorite line of our JET theme song!!!!

You had faith, when I had none 
You prayed God would bring me a brand new song 
When I didn't think I could find the strength to sing 
And all the while I'm hoping that I'll 
Do the kind of praying for you that you've done for me 
And that's the way it ought to be...

So, this is for you!!!

Now, I g2g 2 bed, b4 my Mom finds me still here!!!
But I love you girl!!
Forever & Always,


  1. Jillian! That's the sweetest thing I have ever read! ily!

  2. Wow, you guys are such great friends! I wish I had someone like that... Kinda strange, but this was a bit encouraging :) I guess, keep lovin' each other! :D

_Adam Duritz

I love hearing things that aren't my own pathetic echoes.
