Thank Goodness for Great Friends: Megan Story

One of the coolest people you will EVER meet!

I have a quote on my mirror that I got in Young Womens during a time when I was struggling with finding good friends. I read it DAILY and LOVE it.

"Choose your friends carefully. It is they who will lead you in one direction or the other. Everybody wants friends. Everybody needs friends. No one wishes to be without them. But never lose sight of the fact that it is your friends who will lead you along the paths that you will follow." -Gordon B. Hinkley

This quote is SOOO SOOO true. And the older I get, the more I realize how difficult it is to find TRUE friends who love and accept you no matter what. I have A LOT of really great people in my life and many people that fit the "true friend" category, but today I would like to introduce you to one of my HEROS: Megan Ruth Story.

This girl has been there for me through thick and thin. Every.SINGLE.milestone. We have been great friends ever since we were in Jr. High. Megan was there when I had my first boyfriend, first kiss, first heartbreak, first loss of a loved one, when I got my driver's license, we texted for the first time on our very first cell phones...you get the picture.

There is not a more genuine or true friend in this world than this girl.

I was SOOO excited when she got home from her mission in March, and we have been having a riot ever since! Although we are both busy, we always find time to play and have a great time! She is in my category of "low maintenance friends", meaning we can go days or weeks without talking, but we are both so secure in our love and appreciation for each other. We both would do anything for each other at the drop of a hat, and when we lose touch we know that it is just because life gets busy.

She even convinced me to go to a singles ward this summer in Utah county. THAT'S A BIG DEAL! There is nothing I hate more than going to a church that feels like it is designed to get me hitched, BUT Megan got me there and we had so much fun laughing about all of the funny times together. Besides my family, I will definitely miss seeing Megan so much when I move back up to school. She is always there to lift up my day or just listen to my whiny self when I am having a hard time.

If there's anyone that I strive to be more like each day, it's Megan....and I am pretty sure there are a lot of people that agree with that statement!

Love ya Megs!
