Everyone has those friends that you grew up with and will never forget. I knew this one girl since we were 4 until now. We went to the same school for about 11 years: Pre-Kindergarten till now. She was my best friend along with two other girls who still come to school with me. In the middle of 8th grade, she was diagnosed with leukemia. No one expected anyone as perfect as her to get cancer. My teacher told me that the best of people get the hardest of challenges because they’re too great to handle normal ones. From what I have experienced; it’s true.
Recently, on April 17th she passed away. After a year of cancer, she was done. She relapsed in the beginning of this year, and now she’s passed away. To me, she’s won the battle. She’s in a better place now and no longer has to deal with this life we live in filled with hate and conflict.
I’m not just saying this because she was my best friend, but she lit up the room when she walked in. She was always smiling, never talked badly about anyone, never put down anyone, and was always laughing. She was always smiling and cracking jokes. Even with cancer and everything, she was still smiling and laughing.
She was always a positive and smiley person. She always told her friends and her family to be positive, and that’s what we did. We stayed positive for her because we believed she would make it. She always told everyone to be positive. It was her motto.
Coincidentally, her blood type was B+.
I realize that she’s gone from this world, but I know she’s in a better place and that’s me being positive. She’s now my role model, and for her, I’ll always remember to be positive for everything I go through in life.
Just remember, B+, because it’s always better to look at the bright side of everything even when things are going wrong. Wouldn’t you rather be happy then sad? Life is precious, so make the best out of it. 🙂
