A few years ago I wrote a blog about my friends.
I was reading it today, and was amazed at the changes that have taken place in my life in the last almost three years. ( it's that whole cycle theory) I'm thrilled that I have a few friends that have and continue to outlast the "rule".
Myself as well as the people close to me have changed and grown, so I felt compelled to revisit this post idea once more.
I'd like you to meet the most important people in my life..
These are my friends...
I have a friend who is my backbone ( which I need since I rarely have one of my own). She is not afraid to tell me how it is, she is honest, she is amazing, she runs through mud and fire for crying out loud! She even buys me beer!
I have a friend who knows me better than I know myself, she always knows when to call, goes with me to see NKOTB ( come on July!) She has amazing poise, drive and is probably the nicest person I know.
I have a friend who is my Jimminey Cricket, she makes me do the right thing even when I don't want to. She is wise and caring, and occasionally over the top. She is the Hutch to my Starsky.
I have a friend (x2) who make me laugh til I can't breathe. I am so grateful that her and her awesomely funny boyfriend have become such an important part of our lives, I just wish they lived closer. I'm glad that I finally got to really know these two amazing people that I've known forever.
I have a friend who has a tough exterior, but she has a gooey center. She can be sweet an kind, but Lord help you if you mess with her kids! She loves me and my insanity, even though I'm pretty sure the first thing I ever said to her was "So I hear you have a problem with my dog?"
I have a friend who is the poprocks in my milk shake! Her and her amazing hubby in such a short span of time have become family. No Christmas will ever be the same without them, with or without Goose.
I have a friend who has the heart the size of an ocean. She has been through so much #%?! in the past few years, but is still pushing forward. Even when I only see her for coffee occasionally, I know we are still there for each other. She is ridiculously good to me, and I love her so much!
I have a friend who is classy and sassy, is blunt, sincere, sarcastic, and loves so deeply. She's a rocking mom and I'm pretty sure she could run a marathon in her sparkly high heels.
I have a friend who makes everything happier. Yogurt is sweeter, songs are more harmonious, and the sun is brighter when she is around. I wish she was my neighbor, we'd stay up all night coloring.
I have a friend who we first bonded over our girls, but became the best of friends. We don't get to chat nearly enough, she lives way too far away, but she is my sister in my heart. Forever. Our lives fell on different tracks, her track went to Washington, but she is my family now and forever, and I love her and her kids more than anything.
I have a new friend. We just click! I'm still getting to know her, but can see us being lifelong friends! She funny, sweet and we have lots in common. Hope the navy keeps them here a while.
I have a friend who I miss. She was a warrior, she fought cancer, and 9 months ago lost the battle. Her inspiration and love will always live on in my heart. I will always miss her presence.
I have a friend who is my soulmate, my best friend, my hero. He is truly the love of my life and not a day goes by that I am not amazed by him. He loves me unconditionally and it's the most amazing gift I've ever been given. My husband, my love, my friend.
Thank you my friends, for being you! I hope you all know how much I love you.
