Today should be an easy and fun topic..... Who is your best friend?

For me that's the easiest one ever...My hubby is my best friend, bar none! When I want someone to hang out with, it's him; when I want someone to shop with, it's him; when I need someone to console me, it's him; if I want someone to giggle with, it's him. smilewinkgrin

Easy as that. We even had it in our wedding vows and the minister read a poem called "Today I Marry My Best Friend". ( awwww, getting misty here>

And you???

I actually have 3 but only one is my soul mate and that is my hubby. My 2 other best friends - one I have known for 28 years and the other 24 years. These ladies have been with me thru thick and thin. I have a many number of other good friends but none can compare to these ladies.

My best friend is indeed my husband of 39 years.  We have been together for 42 years, met at age 14.  He has been at my side through some really rough times and has always supported me during the darkest of days and supports me now with this darn fibromyalgia which incapacitates me.
I have two women that I consider my best friends too.  They both live far away and I keep in tough long distance.  I used to have a third best friend but she died a few years a go.  There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of her and miss her
And last but not least there is my oldest daughter which i consider a best friend too  We are very very close and I love her to pieces.
Thanks for letting me share.

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.

I had two best friends number one was my twin sister but she died 6 years ago. If it was not for my seconded best friend who has held me up through every thing I have done to myself since she died then I would not be here today and he has been by my side for 28 years and he is my husband.
