B.F.F's ..... I Love 'em!!

A few days ago I posted this about friends and friendships.
In light of that post I have spent the past few days talking to my two best friends and have to give them a special shout out!
People say that "best means best" and you can't have more than one best friend. Well, I beg to differ.
I am so blessed to have several women in my life that I can call friends. And even more blessed to have two in particular who have been there the longest and pretty much know me better than anyone. I cannot lie to them, I cannot pretend with them, I cannot hide things from them , nor can I keep a secret from them.
Sorry folks! They are like that life vest that keeps me from drowning in a sea of uncertainty.
One (Michelle) I have known since high school. We bonded after school one day, ended up giving her a ride home and really liked her. The next year we had drama together , I found out she too knew all the words to "Whoomp There it Is" and I felt I had found a kindred. We have been friends ever since. She has seen me through so many ups and downs that I can't even begin to recount them all. We have been broken hearted, lost our way and down on our luck but so long as we had each other - nothing even mattered. Even when I moved away for college. Our bond stayed strong. Her mother says" what I like about you guys is that no matter how much time has passed, you are still the same with each other. It's like no time has passed at all".
We've had unplanned babies (me) a marriage ( her) and two subsequent pregnancies (her again) and through it all we have remained!
My other BFF is my college roommate - Pie. No, thats not her real name but that's what I have been calling her since 1997 and see no reason to stop now.
Somehow God saw fit to make us roommates our freshman year. I was nervous. Had never lived with another girl before but we talked before we got there and she seemed okay. Once we got to school it was like I had known her all my life. Going away to college you become "instant bff's" with girls and then fall out just as quickly. Not my Pie. Our bond came out of a love of chips and salsa and meeting boys. Thank God we were able to room together our Sophomore year as well!
She was the first friend I told when I was pregnant, she threw me a baby shower ,came to the hospital while I was in labor and brought me "personal items" when I needed them the most. She is the god-mother to my Sweet Pea. The love I have for this woman is unyielding. She has such a good heart and her laughter and sense of humor are uncanny.
This is why I have chosen these women to stand up for me at my wedding to Damon and be my Matron's of honor. They have been there since Damon and I were just a dynamic friendship duo and have always encouraged and supported our relationship!
Mia Pie, I love you so much!! there reallyaren't enough words.......thank you for being such a good friend! You are such an amazing woman and I can't wait to see what life has in store!
Michelle my belle - You are my best friend tried and true, my ride or die chick and I am for you!
I love you so much and am so proud of the woman you have become!!!
Missing you both terribly,


  1. this is so beautiful! Friends like you describe here, are a true blessing.
    i bet they love you too!
