I’ve grown to enjoy the Memories feature that shows up on my Facebook page every day because it allows me to reflect on both the good times and meaningful friendships I have maintained over the years.
To my delight, today, I was reminded of one of the best nights of my life. I had always dreamed of going to the Super Bowl. My friend Nola had a plus-1 ticket to an ESPN party held the night before Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, CA. Nola invited me to join her in San Francisco since she knew how much the Super Bowl meant to me.
That night became a part of me that I will never forget. It meant so much to me knowing that a dear friend of mine made a conscious effort to make my dreams come true.
Whenever this memory comes up on Facebook, Nola and I reminisce about all the great times we shared together at the party... especially when I met Tim Tebow, and we both discovered that we have a mutual friend! We even took a selfie to send to him.
This momentous occasion will always serve as an important reminder to remain grateful for the strong friendships I have and for the great times I continue to share with my loved ones. Actor Darren Criss once said, "Life is only as good as the people you get to share it with." And I can't stress enough how much this statement is true and how thankful I am for the amazing people in my life.
