There is one special person for everyone. I just have not found that one person yet. I may meet him in the future or I may have already met him, but I do know that he is out there waiting for me. I have seen first hand this love and this is why I believe. My father has found his one special person and this was not an easy task. He had his heartbroken by mother when I was three. This was a devastating event not only for my father, but for mother and I as well.

I believe that there is one special person for everyone. In my case, the special person is my best friend. It was my freshman year of high school. Like every fifteen-year old girl, I had various problems. One of the bigger problems was between this girl and me. We had been friends, but had a fight, and stopped talking. In the middle of the fight, I began to develop a friendship with another girl. We became extremely close and eventually, we reached the best friend level. This all happened during the second semester of ninth grade. Over the summer, we did almost everything together. I went with her and her family to Hatteras Island and it was the best time ever. When we came home, and returned to school, our bond was still strong.

I believe how a person acts in a crisis shows who they really are. My grandmother showed me this when my grandfather died. My grandparents had been married for over fifty years when my grandfather suffered the stroke that killed him. Ever since that day I have know exactly what kind of person my grandmother is.
