Thank you letter to guy best friend
Friend, a word describing a person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard. I have a guy best friend, and he has been my best friend for four years now. He knows me better than I know myself. He is my go-to person, he is the keeper to most of my secrets, the person whose approval I need for almost everything I do. He is my Snapchat best friend, as I am his.SEE VIDEO BY TOPIC: Thank You -- A Letter to My Best Friend
An Appreciation Letter To My Best Guy Friend
I don't know what I would do without you. I wouldn't be where I am in life now if it weren't for your support, love, truth, and honesty.
Sometimes I forget to tell you how much you mean to me. So I just wanted to say thank you for being a brother from another mother and one of my guy best friends. A lot of guys just nod and say "mhmm". But you genuinely care about what is happening in my life.
After listening to me for hours, you tell me the truth even if it does hurt my feelings. The truth hurts but you know if I didn't hear it now, it would hurt me more later on.
I have burped, ate sloppy, and was able to discover who I really was because you liked me for me. Boys suck and you know it. Thank you for making me feel better by telling me I deserved better, buying ice cream for me, and letting me binge watch sad movies on your television. You taught me how to have self-confidence in everything I do. But you also taught me the line between confidence and cocky-ness. Because of you, I can hold a good conversation with any guy and I am never out of the loop.
Also, guys stuff is so cool. I would be missing out if it weren't for you. After all the fun and games that annoyed and pissed me off, it made me learn how to be strong and tough.
You show me what I should be looking for in a partner. It also shows me that my high standards for guys can be filled.

I am annoying, crazy, and filled with shenanigans and I thank you for choosing me to be one of your best friends. You have to put up with a lot being my best friend but somehow you do it. Even though I may not show it, I really do appreciate everything you do for me. I hope I can return the favor and be able to be as good as a best friend to you as you are to me.
Now more than ever, we are all incredibly thankful for our healthcare workers, and really everyone who is on the front lines of taking care of our neighbors and loved ones during this time.
I don't happen to be an " essential worker ," but when I talk to my friends who are nurses and doctors, the number-one complaint I get from them has been surprising to me: they can't stop complaining about how badly their feet hurt from running around all day and night.
Honestly, I don't blame them. Alcohol can be super high in calories depending on the drink, so try some low-calorie drinks that won't make you feel like you've betrayed your diet! If you're anything like me, you like to throw back a few adult beverages every once in a while, but you also cringe when you look at the calorie content on the cocktail menu!
I love food and I hate the thought of wasting my calories on drinks, even alcoholic ones. I also am not a fan of light beers so I decided to do some searching and find the perfect cocktails with no guilt attached. Like most women, I dread trying on swimwear.
It's an unpleasant time of the year I often try to avoid until the inevitable beach day with friends is planned, after which I reluctantly scour the internet for something flattering yet stylish. Nothing ruins a nice day in the sun with friends like feeling massively uncomfortable, and the options available in swimwear can oftentimes be dismal, to say the least.
One of the first things I always notice is the incredible lack of size inclusivity in swimwear. Of course, it exists everywhere, but in swimwear, it's especially apparent. This year, people are embracing and are thankful for the great outdoors and simple beauty of nature than ever before. Whether you're planning on hitting up your best friend's pool the second quarantine is lifted in your area, or you just want to look like an absolute Queen hanging out on your back porch alone, these suits have got you covered metaphorically, of course.
While no one loves this new way of life we're adjusting to, it's the necessity that will eventually help us fling open our front doors and frolic freely once again! Premature thinking? But while we're in the midst of this quarantine time, we're chatting about the most terrifying, the funniest, and the weirdest thing that quarantine has forced us into recently.
It seems like the only thing I do these days is scroll through social media in a desperate attempt to gain information. My phone has called me out on my screen time more than once, and I just continue to ignore it. You're probably in the same boat — stuck at home, scrolling deeper and deeper into a hole of conspiracy theories and possible "back to normalcy" dates, hungry for information.
While we know that the news is not our mental health's friend these days, getting reliable information is helpful and necessary. While the rest of us are home on our phones, healthcare workers are on the coronavirus COVID front line every single day. They see what we read snippets of, quickly gaining the perspective that we couldn't fathom.
That's why we're going to the root of the information — these healthcare workers who put their own safety at risk every single day. Today, I sat down virtually with Blakelynn Sherouse, a labor and delivery nurse in Ridgecrest, California.
How long have you been a nurse? Currently, we are screening all patients, visitors, and staff for signs of infection and exposure, from the time they enter the premises. Everyone has their temperature taken and is asked a variety of questions based on possible symptoms and exposure to those testing positive. We have a tent setup outside of our ER to manage our "surge," even though we pray to never see it.
In regard to direct patient care, we are requiring every patient and visitor to wear surgical masks or homemade cloth face coverings. If we were to have a person under investigation or a positive result, our protocol involves isolating the patient in a specific room designed for "airborne precautions" so that those in the surrounding area are not exposed through breathing the same air.
As for my unit, we have an extra doctor on call as our "dirty doctor. As of right now, my hospital is keeping a close eye on those that may be exposed and begin to show symptoms. Employee health records and keeps in communication with the nurses in contact with patients under investigation and positive cases.
If one was to begin showing symptoms we can contact our employee health nurse. If we match the criteria, we are scheduled for a drive-through test.
We are then to self isolate at home and cannot return to work while waiting for the result. Once the result is released — from my understanding and discussing with coworkers — we are to self-isolate at home for two weeks, no matter what that result is.
Thankfully, we have yet to have a nurse come back with a positive result. However, we've had many that have had paid time off drained because they are required to isolate after they've been tested.
Yes, thankfully we do. My hospital has been blessed and cursed through this ordeal. We are a rural hospital in the middle of the desert that is two hours away from the next bigger hospital, so we see a wide range of patients on a daily basis.
One of our main functions is scheduled surgeries. We rely heavily on our outpatient procedures and have patients commute hours for treatment. Sadly those operations have been shut down because of this crisis. The hospital has much less buzz around it recently — it's eerie. However, on the other hand, my hospital has been preparing for any possible surge of patients.
We've had time to stock up on necessary supplies, like PPE. While I'm sad to know that nurses are not getting their full-time hours because of our decreased patient load, I'm also thankful we are not pushed beyond our limits at this point.
The biggest change day-to-day during this crisis has definitely been more the impact on my patients and their families. Having a baby is not only an extremely joyful time, but it can also be a very painful and stressful event for some mommas.
It has been taxing having to explain why we are only allowing one support person with our patients. And even after delivery, that person can't go home — they have to stay for the entire hospital stay. Through this whole thing, I've tried to stay closer to my patients when I can. Whether I chart in the room or just spend a little extra time talking with the patient and her support person, I feel like it helps if they know that I'm not only their nurse but also another support person that's there for the two of them and their baby.
It's funny — since we live in a valley because I've always called this place a "fishbowl. I frequently go back and forth. I believe there's a lot of good information and a lot of misinformation still.
At the beginning of all this, I definitely leaned to the side of skepticism. I kind of blew it off as " like a flu. And then New York was hit and I was honestly terrified.
I think the news and media coverage have a way of sometimes building up a lot of things, but I also think it made people realize how real this crisis is. I still stand by the rule to check your sources and take everything you hear with a grain of salt, whether that information is coming to you from a local news station or our federal government. I wish the country would realize that this isn't a "one and done" sort of thing. We are in this for the long haul.
I agree, it really sucks being stuck at home being in quarantine, however, this virus will not go away on its own. It doesn't have an end date or an expiration — it's a virus, a pathogen. It will decide when it wants to get stronger — which we've now seen — or weaker.
The best thing we can do is try to contain it ourselves by washing up and staying home as much as possible, and YES that means even when the stay at home orders are loosened. My parents are on the other side of the country right now, in Georgia. They are seeing a totally different side to this story than I am. Their governor has opened a lot of places while California still has strict shutdown orders.
A Thank You Letter To My Best Friend
Thank you. Thank you for always being here for me. Always having my back. Always being the one I can trust.
At this point, you probably know you are one of the most important people in my life. Yes, I have a lot of other friends, but none are quite like you. I could never possibly put into words all of the things I want to say to you because the list is endless. I could write a thousand pages worth of all the things I want to thank you for, but here are just a few.

I don't know what I would do without you. I wouldn't be where I am in life now if it weren't for your support, love, truth, and honesty. Sometimes I forget to tell you how much you mean to me. So I just wanted to say thank you for being a brother from another mother and one of my guy best friends. A lot of guys just nod and say "mhmm". But you genuinely care about what is happening in my life. After listening to me for hours, you tell me the truth even if it does hurt my feelings. The truth hurts but you know if I didn't hear it now, it would hurt me more later on.

You simply make everything brighter. I just want you to know how much I appreciate you and how grateful I am for you. Thank you for giving me your time. And you always give me that.
So, to that awkward person, my best friend:. Thank you for being you and for letting me be me. Thank you for not making me wear any masks or put on any fronts. Thank you sharing in my happiest moments, and for genuinely feeling the same; for listening to my saddest stories and radiating compassion and empathy from wherever you are.
