Christmas Day 2017, my High School ,and still best friend, came to my house to exchange gifts.
Some backstory on my friend’s family is that every family gathering of theirs was filled with anger and decade old grudges. Some of her relatives had even been disowned for rather small matters
While my friend was there, I noticed that she had begun tearing-up because she had never seen a family so happy to be together. I’d never before seen or heard of her crying in the two and half years I’d known her. It was amazing to know that, through me, my sister-like best friend now had family absent of judging and disownment.
