Do you have anyone who is always there for you, no matter what? Who do you have in your life that helps you through all the rough times? Do you have a best friend? If so, who is it, and do you feel grateful to have that person in your life?
 
I just felt like posting a fun question.

May your heart be filled with love and joy.
May your mind be clear and true.
May your smiles be many,
And may your tears be few. 
May God wrap you in His arms
Especially when you're feeling blue.

It would be my mother. I have that mother all my friends loved because she was just so cool. I didn't think so as a teenager but I do now, lol. She is always my one person cheering squad. I can not remember her not being there when I really needed it. She also isn't afraid to tell me I am wrong even if I don't want to hear it.

My hubby and my Mom. Moonmatrix we have the same kind of mom. My kids friends think the same about me I open my home to both of my kids friends and try to make them comfy here. If they are at my house I dont have to worry where they are and what they are doing. Plus we have a pool hot tub and golf balls play station2 and wii.. Its an above ground pool and the hot tub was free an older lady who got divorced gave it to us golf clubs came from yard sale and game systems were christmas gifts We live 2 blocks from middle and high school.. So it is convienent for kids to come here.

My wonderful loving wife (truty my soulmate) and i am blessed to have her by my side.
I can no longer work but my wife does and i miss her dearly everyday while she's away.
She is my sunshine in my dreary days of cfs/fibro/depression.
We do what we can for each other,, always.  But most importantly she also understands when i'm just too tired for anything.
Her smile is all the encouragement i need to keep trying everyday.

Hello all: I have a big old part Amstaff and part Rhodesian, Dog, her name is Lenny. She is thirteen years old. She is still doing ok. A little sore in her joints so I give her Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM. She has travelled extensively with me, like 50 thousand miles and like me is happiest on the road. She is by my side 90% of the time. Also I have her protege, he is two, he tries to fill her shoes but they are pretty big shoes to fill. He wants to go everywhere with us but is very conflicted about vehicles. So, he tries to force himself to get in the vehicle but then is afraid. We will continue to work on this.

I also have a chum from my somewhat wild youth. He lives with his wife and children about an hour from here. I have only seen him 2X's in three years, since I came here to care for Dad but we email regularly. He always knows what's going on. He is the funniest man I have ever known, he is a natural comic.

Then there are the plentitude of people who came forward to assist while I was cleaning out 35 years of accumulated junk and filth from my parents old Farmhouse. He made sure all the heavy lifting was done by someone young and strong from the community. He hung in to the bitter end despite being in incredible pain from prostrate. he is an angel, as is his wife. These are my best friends right now. Nice question.

My best friends are my husband and my grandma. My grandma has fibro as well, so she really understands what I am going through. My husband is always there for me, no matter what. He puts up with me when I am in a bad mood. He takes care of me everyday. He is just my very best friend in the whole world.

My Husband and my Sister are a definite tie on that one. But......, my daughter is so close that I'd almost have to squeeze her in there too. MMMMMMMMM, this ? is hard.

I appreciate them all SO MUCH. They are the best at understanding me with FM. Ooooo, I'm tearing up.

There is nothing wrong with having more than one best friend. With our illness, it is a blessing to have as many friends as we can get. It is so helpful to have people who are there for us and who care about us. Everyone needs friends, and for us, it is even more important because we need people to understand and support us when we are going through a hard time.

My neighbor is defiently my best friend, even though she is more then twice my age (I'm 26 and she's 61) I have more in common with her then my friends my own age. At first the other crazy neighbors told her I was this horrible abusive mother that never fed my kids, and her being a big time child protector, had to see with her own eyes, and found out I was quite the oposite. She thinks I'm a wonderful mother, but she knows I'm limited with my fibro and chronic pain and depression, but my kids are very well taken care of with their emotional and physical needs. And before she met me, she was very reclusive, and never went anywhere, and now she loves to go places with me. I always joke that she's my personal nanny and she jokes that I'm her personal driver, we do things for each other all the time. And I can tell her anything, even my own dark sercrets, and I know that my secrets will never go anywhere with her. And we both are very much into computer games from a few websights, and we trade passwords so we can download each others games lol. We're cheaters I guess.

Also my degus are my best frineds, I alwys carry conversations with them, and yes, they really do talk back to me, even though I have no idea what they're saying, I really feel that they sometimes know what I'm saying. Even last time I had strep throat, one of them acted very worried abut me and didnt want me to leave her. It's hard to beleive that these small rodents have this much feelings, but I have read a report in NY times that they are as smart as primates. And they are very spoiled little girls, I love buying them things, actually just giving them a roll of toilet paper makes them very excited lol.
