You know you love someone when you're lying in bed at night and you roll over to get that text from them and you're so incredibly tired yet, you still smile.


Before I met my best friends,
I was the loneliest girl
In the whole wide world
They helped me see me
A girl: funny, laughing, annoyingly sweet,
And worthy of friends

Before I met my teachers
I was the dumbest girl
In the whole wide world
They helped me see me
A girl: smart, willing to learn, bright
And worthy of an education

Before I met you
I was the ugliest girl
In the whole wide world
You helped me see me
A girl: beautiful, strong, stubborn,
And worthy of love

Before I met God and Jesus
I was the saddest sinner
In the whole wide world
The Holy Ghost helped me see me
A perfect creation of God, loved by Jesus
And worthy of salvation

No one can tell you what you were
Before you did something
So tell me…
What was your before?
And what is your now?

I hope that people will realize that they are never alone and everyone you come in contact with affects who you are no matter how short the contact.
