For most of you who know me, this year has been pretty craptacular. I'm sure I will blog about it sooner or later for those of you who don't know and actually care to. I have shed too many tears this year but this time, it is good tears. A friend of mine wrote this blog post about me a few days ago and I came across it today and just started crying. I had no idea how important I was to her until I read this. We have had our ups and downs for sure but after reading this, I just wanted to see her and give her a big hug and say Thank you for making my day a little brighter! Here is what she wrote:
"Day 3 is a picture of me and my bestest friend. My friend Amy and I have know each other since 2001 or so, I'm bad with the details, she would know probably the month and day even. lol
As with most friendships we have had our ups and downs and for awhile there we stopped talking completely. It unfortunately took something drastic for me to find the courage to talk to her again and like the forgiving person she is, she accepted me back in to her life. I really don't know what I would do without her. She has been going through some rough times in life and I try to be there for her as much as possible and don't have nearly enough time with her as I want to.
Best friends should be able to discuss anything and everything without feeling shy or scared to talk about them and I have that with Amy. We talk about family, friends, relationships, sex, dogs, general public and other random questions that come to mind. It is so easy to talk with her about these things that I barely hesitate when I have a new questions or topic to discuss.
I don't think about it too much because it hurts to and my eyes well up as I type this, but she was there when I found out about my Dad passing. That time is a blur to me mostly, but I remember clearly walking into the ER and seeing her face and just knowing and she was there for me through that. It was the hardest thing I have gone through to this day.
She is dealing with her own life struggles and I hope that I am there for her throughout them and can make more time for her and be there by her side when she needs me. This is why she is my best friend, I can not imagine a time without her anymore."
