This weekend I was blessed to have my best friend come a spend the weekend with me. I have not seen her since Orlando at the beginning of last month. We didn't have any plans or anything to do so we just hung out and shared life. It was nice, no pressure to entertain her, we just enjoyed each other.
Yesterday we were in an out of the house, running errands and doing some projects I wanted to finish. We hit the farm market, Goodwill, did laundry, fixed some clothes that needed mending, did a sewing project for her camera lenses, made a wonderful lunch, picked up some items from a resale I was participating in, ran more errands and just generally laughed and had fun. It was 3:00 am before I headed upstairs and tried to turn off my mind. I went to sleep thinking about how very blessed I was.
It has only been 9 months since we were introduced through an email, and I cannot fathom my life with her in it. She knows me inside and out and she still considers me a friend. She knows the good, the bad, and the so very ugly. I know I can share anything with her and she will listen and not judge. She gave me some good advice this weekend on dealing with my kids and I am thankful for her wisdom. I am a better person with her in my life. She is kind, funny, wise and compassionate. My kids love her. My husband enjoys her wit and the fact she appreciates his sarcasm. I love her to pieces and I am thrilled she is a part of my life, my family and my heart.
How do you know that you enjoyed a busy weekend laughing with your best friend? When the both of you are photographers and have both cameras in the house and you cannot remember to take a picture of yourselves together! :)
