A/N: This is my submission for @impalaimagining‘s Friends Quote Challenge. The prompt I picked was no. 30 “Yep! There’s always room for Jell-O.” My prompt will be bolded in the fic. It’s short and sweet, really. I quite liked it and I hope you do as well! It was very fun to write! This was not looked over by anyone, all mistakes are my own.

Thanksgiving at Jody’s was always my favorite time of the year. She made amazing food and I loved to hang out and girl talk with her, Claire, and Alex because believe it or not, Sam, Dean, and Castiel aren’t the best girl talkers that have ever lived.
Every year, Sam would insist that we go a day early, so we could help with the cooking the next day and none of us minded at all. Jody was like a mother to all of us, she always had room for us, but would insist we sit down, relax, and enjoy our down time. So, we would help her with whatever she needed whether she wanted us to or not and we’d get done earlier in the afternoon. After that, we had plenty of time to joke around and hang out, which was my second favorite part of the day.
My first favorite part was dessert. No matter how much food I had eaten, I always had room for dessert.
Monica: [complaining about her Thanksgiving] Did anyone ever give a hoot about what I wanted? NO, NO, NO, NO! And I’m just… [her voice gets very squeaky and high-pitched]
Chandler: Okay, Monica, only dogs can hear you now.

Thank you for being you and for letting me be me. Thank you for letting me feel so much like myself when I’m with you. 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. Thank you for being the only person I ever want to confide in.
Thank you for being the most beautiful person, inside and out. Thank you for making the world a better place, just by being in it. Thank you for making colors a little brighter, sunshine a little warmer, and hugs a little better. Thank you for loving more fiercely than anyone I know. Thank you for defining selfless, always putting others before yourself; you are going to change the world just as much as you have changed mine.
Thank you for the laughs, for the cries, and for everything in between. Thank you for being my rock, my anchor; for keeping me grounded when I feel like I might otherwise blow away. Thank you for all of the things you do, big and small. Thank you for knowing my favorite ice cream flavor and what song I would die for. Thank you for always knowing what to say and for being one of life’s best teachers. Thank you for making fun of me when I deserve it, and for loving me when I don’t. Thank you for staying constant in a world full of change, and for keeping some normalcy in a world full of chaos.
Thank you for laughing as hard as I did at that video in biology lab freshman year. Thank you for making sure I didn’t get away from you four years ago. Thank you for setting the bar so high and making it impossible to find another friend as good as you. Thank you for making the four short years we have been friends feel like forever and for giving me enough memories to last a lifetime, but not ending there. Thank you for making me hurt when I miss you, but for taking the hurt away when I see you. Thank you for loving me. Thank you for the absolute privilege and honor of being able to call you my best friend; thank you for being my person. Thank you for giving me these reasons, and a million more, to be thankful for.
