We laugh. We smile. We spent a countless amount of hours by one another's side. And yet, we feel like we haven't had enough time with them.

We call them our best friend. But, they are more than a friend.

They were the ones who brought us ice cream when we were down. They were the ones who made us tea when we were sick. They were the ones who stuck by our sides even when we knew the odds of us getting through this were slim to none.

We don't give them enough credit. There are no best friends without a concrete relationship. We can't simply have a best friend when we know nothing about them. We can't have a best friend when we don't give up some of our time to help them. We can't have a best friend when we refuse to acknowledge their existence when we're upset. We can't have a best friend without trusting someone with our entire being.

There is a difference between friend and best friend. The amount of hours we talk. The number of times we have bought or made them a gift. The acting like nothing happened after a move. And the love we show for one another.

That best friend turns into more than a friend when we show our true love for them. That best friend turns into more than a friend when we show we will do anything for them. That best friend turns into more than a friend when we feel completely comfortable with one another and don't care what the other thinks. That best friend is more than a best friend. She is a sister.
