See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Tell me about your bestie or besties. Keep in mind, they don't have to be same sex bestie; besties can constitute SO's/DH's, kiddos, etc. So, tell me about them. I'm in a foo foo kinda mood.
My bestie is named Amy; she is well known here on CM and has a ton of besties but she always refers to me as her #1 :-). This woman has the biggest heart I have ever seen in any one person in this entire world. There isn't anything in this world that she wouldn't do for the people who she loves.
This lady here, she is phenomenal. She is so pure hearted but has the fire of the devil in her if you make her mad. I love it about her.
People come and go out of your lives but it's the true test of those who refuse to leave no matter how hard you push them out. She has stood that test with me. I'm not proud that recently in the past I haven't been the friend she deserved or needed.
I went through one of the hardest times of my life (all of CM knows about, of course). I reclused from EVERYONE in my life, including my DS, my parents and her. It has been the LONGEST 8 months of my life.
I stopped talking to her but not just to her, to everyone. We used to text constantly through the days. I shut her out, I shut everyone out. There was only 3 people in my life who pushed harder to remain in my life, to help me, to be there for me....3....that's it. Out of everyone who claimed to be a "friend", to "always have (my) back"; 3 fought back.
My mom, my dad and Amy. Well, technically 4, Amy's hubby, too. That's it.
Those are the people I can depend on in this life. No one has ever proven such loyalty to me, including my (almost ex) husband. The ones who say they'll be there for you, aren't.
She fought tooth and nail to make sure I was okay, she still does. She always texted me telling me she loved me, even if I didn't respond; she'd do it consistantly. Other than my parents, she is the only person I can trust. I don't trust easily but she's made her place in my life and she's proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that she is here for me, no matter what.
That is the mark of a TRUE best friend. Someone who will fight just to be in your life not matter how much you fight to push everyone out. It's once in a life time that you meet a friend like her and I am so thankful that she's come into my life. There is a purpose in life, there are people in your life who make everyday better, other than my son and my parents, she and her husband are those people. I have never met a better set of people who actually love me absolutely unconditionally.
I'm sad because we live so, so far apart but one day when I'm finished with school, we're all gonna be together. She is my lady soulmate and I pray and hope that one day I can meet a man who is like her.
I love you Amy, forever. You are my rock and you mean the absolute world to me.
