This is Jocee.
She's my friend.
She's brave, she's kind. Her heart has grown to carry so many stories from people who trust her like their stories are her own.
I couldn't be prouder to know her and I look forward to many more years of sharing our hearts in the good things and the hard, talking about boys, reading each other's poetry, tracking down Chick-Fil-A, texting each other way too late at night just to talk about some nonsense we've heard lately.
She's a good sort of person.
Also, buy her book. I even wrote something for it.
