I am a person who is very picky about the company I keep. Because of this, I have just a handful of very close friends and people whom I trust in my home and with my children. My dauhter's godmother, my best friend, was caught taking prescription medicine from my cabinet once before. She told me that she was going to tell me.
Recently, my husband got a prescription for pain medicine refilled following surgery. The evening of the day it was refilled my husband noticed half of his bottle was gone. Unfortunately for my friend, I watched her take medicine before, she also happened to be the only other adult in my home that day, so I gave her an opportunity to come clean and give it back.
I should have done something different, but she left that night and ignored my calls and my house visits for a whole week. She came to my door yesterday reminding my husband of all the good things she has done for our family over the years and what kind of person do I think she is.
I wanted nothing more during that first week for another explanation to present itself but there is no other. I am heartbroken. I am an army wife who is thousands of miles from family. My children call her Auntie. I have been a depressed wreck for a week. I feel because she has been lying to her husband and herself for a whole week now, she may never come clean for fear of more shame and embarrassment. There is a piece of me that will never sit right because of this.
Most importantly, we don't have each others friendship and our husbands friendship may suffer as well. And my kids...they lose the only Aunt who has been physically close.

Feel better in time. You've lost a relationship, allow yourself to go through the grieving process. Us Momma's are a LOT stronger and resilient that we give ourselves credit for.

It does really hurt to lose/end such a special friendship, but what else can you do? You will never trust her in your house again. I'd be wondering what other kids of things and how much has she stolen from me before. Maybe a new better trustworthy person will come into your life as a friend
