F is for

Friends! My best friend my forever friend is Babs. I have known her since I barely 18. I met her in July 1970. We became instant friends the day I met her. We married cousins to whom neither of us are now married, but that is how we met. I love her, she loves me. We know each others dirty laundry, and can see each others warts but we are the best of friends. We are the thick and thin kind of friends, we have seen it all and been through everything with each other.
We were so different she was a business professional, and I became a stay at home Mom. I wanted to always be like her and funny she wanted to be like me. My life has grown so much because she has been in it and I could never imagine my life without her.
My other best friend is my husband JB. I love him. I truly am not one to pin the word soul-mate on someone, but I do believe he is mine. He and I have known each other 33 yrs. He was my best guy friend. I met him when I was married to the above cousin of Babs husband (small world). We were all friends, had fun together. I could always get a guys opinion on stuff from JB. In fact when I would come back to Maryland the girls would have a PJ party and he was invited.
4-6 women and JB. We liked his perspective on stuff. I will say now that we are married, I tell him everything anyway but it does change the guy perspective, because now he has a husband perspective. When you are married you affect each others daily lives. I could not imagine my life without him.
My daughters are also my friends, I love each one of them as daughters, but as young women. Each one of them is so different, and the different qualities. It is their uniqueness that helps us to be friends. I can't imagine my life without them!
I have rambled on, but tell me about your Best Friend!

What a wonderful post. My best friend is Kim who now lives in FL. We still talk on the phone or IM a few times a week and she comes up here a couple times a year. Miss her living here terribly though.
