Cuddols, Cuddols my Cuddols...

She is strong, she is beautiful, and she is her own person who smiles and hopes and breathes. She makes me proud, and she is my source of light; my sun that illuminates my world and gives rays of warmth to my body.

I love you Cuddols! You are the very best friend anyone can ask for. You taught me laughter and you taught me how to be compassionate and how to think of others. I have not noticed how selfish I have become.

"Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul"

Over the past 5 years we have grown closer and learnt to trust eachother after experiences and advice. (This is why I know you have two arms, we slept in the same bed and I picked my nose and whiped it on your leg.) When we first became friends, we were both girls in grade 8. Both of us were struggling with our own issues, but throughout the summers, autumns, winters and springs we have helped each other grow into women who we are today...the women of our own.
So thank you for sticking with me and accompanying me through out these important years of my life. It is cliched for me to say, but I will not be the person who I am today without your help and effort to mold me into the better person I have grown to be today.
Thank you for being my best friend, my sister, my advisor, but most importantly, thank you for being my cuddols. Thank you for singing to me, for joking around and being a goof with me, for trusting me, for letting me kick you in your sleep, for hugging me, for caring about me, for letting me poke your bumb, and for letting me burp in your face.
Thank you for making me feel special and thank you for making me feel like I am worth something, that I am not useless, and that I have a purpose.

I do not believe that anything will stop us from being friends, on your 80th burthday I want to be there, I want to invite everyone whom you care about and tell them how proud I am of the person you are and how wonderful and marvelous you are. I love you and it is reality.

Today you are 17! Happy Burthday! I hope your day is wicked and awesome sauce!
