Best friends change over the years. I can't even count how many times I've said the words, "You're My Best Friend"! Several people come to mind though and the thing that they all have in common is that they have been there for me in my most desperate hour of need and have shared a slew of good times also.
The definition of friendship has changed over the years also. I'm so grateful to have really good friends in my life that continue to redefine what it means to be a true friend. Ironically, my family both immediate and extended are the ones that are closest to me now. It's ironic because as a teenager, hanging with the family is the last thing that comes to mind. As an adult - family is first - as it should be.
The one constant I have had though is my diary. I've poured out my soul to my diary and have felt the burdens lifted off my shoulder. There is something so freeing about letting go of the hurts by either talking about it or writing it down. It's like I send off my troubles into the universe when I release them onto paper. Some people are meant to express themselves in that manner. I happen to be one of them.
My husband is also "my best friend". We do EVERYTHING together. Hopefully, one day soon, the Lord will bless us with children.
