Happy new year my dear Friend. Am so glad and honoured that I know you. You have been my rock this ending year.

No matter how many fights we have had, we have come out as victors. We have survived everything that has been thrown at us by ourselves and others.

We have held each other’s hand through hard and happy moments.

With you, my world is more sane and easy.

You have made me important to someone.

I know you have thought of abandoning this friendship because am not an easy person to relate with but as a true friend you have stayed with me in all storms.

You have made me better at being me with all your counsel and guidance

I have been perfected by you, through your advice and strength I have became a better person.

I love you my friend, you are my rock.

There was a time when I messed up so badly, I was scared to tell anyone but you already knew and came bearing solutions and ideas.

You know my desires, my dreams, fears, uncertainties and hopes.

I was ill, and you never looked at me as a sick person because you know I hate pity and can’t deal well with sympathy, you took it as the usual day at work.

When my house got burnt, you got so worried and afraid to visit but you saw yourself here, helped mend the damage and accepted that I needed time to get over the damage that was done.

I know I nag you most times, but you still sit there, listen and even respond to my yapping.

You always say ‘through Christ who gives me strength I am able to help’. I am grateful for that strength.

I pray for you each day. My mind tends to wonder with thoughts about you almost everyday.

This year has not been so good for us but you have suffered more pain and sorrow than I have, I thought grief and anger would destroy you. But it is ending and you still holding on, being strong for yourself and others. Even though the pain is still there, the doubts about yourself and others… you still have hope for a better tomorrow and I will stand by you holding your hand.

Thanks for all the special surprise gifts.

I know you are wondering who is this she is talking about? Who is this special person to Kahill?

It is every one who has impacted my 2013, it is you who has prayed for me, been there for me, stood by me, fought for me battles I didn’t know existed.

It is my mother, my father, my siblings, my relatives, my friends, my workmates, it is you who took time to read this.

You are appreciated.

Happy 2014.
