My Best Friend
Friendships work differently for everyone. Some people have lots of friends they hand out with but do not have one special best friend. Some people only ever have a few friends but share a special bond with each and every one of them. Some people need to speak to their bestie every day while others understand the connection they have and only speak when time allows.
I have always had lots of friends, happy to speak only when needed but hoping our friendship is strong enough to last without a continual catchup. I have always had one special friend, since grade 5, but we do not catch up often anymore due to life getting in the way. What I love about this woman, is when we do get together, nothing has changed. We laugh. We cry. We bitch about others. We drink lots of wine and I love it.
I don’t have to speak to you everyday to know you are on my side.
The bond we share is unbreakable.
We have been tested through boyfriends, fighting over the same guy.
We have been tested through marriage, the beginning of growing apart.
We have been tested through children, living completely different lives.
I can’t believe how lucky I am to have you share my life.
You are the one who makes me a better person.
You encourage me to be a strong, independent woman who will never give in.
I owe you my heart.
I owe you my tears.
I owe you my loyalty.
You are the family I have chosen for myself.
You are my best friend.
Do you have a best friend?
