I have an old grade school friend that I have reconnected with on FB. Recently, her best friend had been diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. (both their names are Lori). I have watched Lori (grade school friend) support her friend 100% throughout her journey from diagnosis to double mastectomy. Lori has sat with her through chemo, went wig shopping, took her to appointments, waited while she had her double mastectomy and has even held a fundraiser to help her pay medical bills. It's been amazing and inspiring. But it got me to wondering...if that happened to ME, do I have a friend who would be there for me like that?? And sadly, the ONLY person I could think of was my husband. Not ONE of my girlfriends would do it. They are all so busy with their own lives and we have grown so far apart that I don't believe they would. And to be honest, it made me very sad. Don't get me wrong, I KNOW that my husband would be the one and he IS my best friend, but I miss having those girlfriend bonds.
Do any of YOU have that friend you can count on 100% in times of crisis or need?
