    Like many people, I guess, I married my best friend. He’s the only person in the world who really gets me, and the only one who can put me in my place when necessary! Almost 20 years ago, we walked out of the church on our wedding day to Queen’s ‘You’re My Best Friend’ and he still is. Great release, and thanks for the opportunity!

    I met my friend, C., in college. Now, we live too far apart to see each other in person very often. So glad to have technology that makes it easy to stay in touch with her.

    Thanks for the contest – what a great looking release this month. πŸ™‚

    My best friend is Patti. She has been there for me through many ups and downs of life, and even though she moved away (first to Europe and then to the Eastern US) 20 years ago, we have remained close – seeing each other at least once a year and talking on the phone regularly.

    Natasha Kara says:

    Volentia, is the given name of the person I refer to as my ‘sister from another mister’ πŸ˜‰ lol! We met in grade 6 and the funny thing is…. We were not best friends right of the bat. Infact I was friends with her older Sister. As the years went by we became closer, but after school is when we really became ‘friends’ she is one of those delightful hearts you just have to thank God every day for putting in your life.

  • 14
    Lori Cullen says:

    My husband, Andrew, is my best friend. Ever since we met freshman year of college, I have never wanted to be apart from him. He has the greatest sense of humor and he is a devoted father which I love about him.

  • 15
    Chriss Blagrave says:

    I am doubly blessed, as I have two best friends. I have known Donna for 53 years and Terry for 50 years. They both live 2000 miles away from where I live now, but cards and telephone calls help keep us in touch weekly. These two friends and I have a foundation that is rock solid. They are my best friends because we have experienced all of life’s ups and downs together and are always “here” for each other. I am so happy to see this beautiful release…lots of options for cards that will be sent! Thanks for the chance and offering this contest.

    TerryB says:

    I really feel lucky that I have 2 best friends – my husband and my sister. My sister and I were estranged for a few years and now that we’ve gotten back together, we are closer than we’ve ever been – it’s wonderful. My husband always looks out for me and loves me with his whole heart, as I do him. He is a treasure to be sure.

    Tanja S. says:

    God has brought many friends along my path and it is difficult to pick who my “best friend” is! However I have a good friend of about 19 years who lives in the town we moved away from 7 years ago. We still catch up a few times a year and facebook, phone and email help us keep in touch. She was a scrapbooker before I was and we enjoy card making, netball and have many similar interests. She has been a great help to me during some tough times and was there for the birth of our third child when my husband was very sick as he could not be a physical/practical support he had been let out of (a different) hospital himself for the day!

    Casie says:

    My friend Nicki and I have know each other for 25 years. We’ve been part of each other’s weddings and been there for each other when those marriages have fallen apart. We’ve helped each other pick ourselves back up and find happiness again. I know we will always be there for each other no matter what comes.

    heidi field says:

    my best friend is my husband, he truly is! we have been through alot together, both with our respective family, and finding out we were unable to have a family of our own. we have faced big battles and small, and no matter what – he is always me safe place. i can rant yell scream cry, hes my shoulder, he never questions just comforts. he knows all my secrets and i know all his, but most importantly , we ALWAYS find a reason to laugh. we can still even after all this time find joy in every day small things, and actually think each others jokes are funny.

  • 24

    My best friend’s name is Renee. She moved out of state a little over a year ago and it was devastating!!!!!! Thank goodness for FaceTime and phone calls. At times it feels like she never left! I can tell her anything and count on her for support whenever I need it.

  • 29
    Nancy Penir says:

    It’s been said over and over, my best friend is my husband! He’s my go to guy for sharing any need, thought, joy and sorrow. We will celebrate our 44th anniversary this year. Hopefully with many more shared years together.

  • 31
    Mary Lou Kemp says:

    My daughter Amy is my best friend. Although I live on the east coast and she is on the west coast we talk every day. Amy is a very generous, caring and loving person. She especially has a soft spot in her heart for rescued animals.

  • 32

  • 34
    Kathy D says:

    I would say I don’t have a BEST friend, but rather that I have 2 or 3 friends who are very dear to me. They “get” me, I “get” them.

  • 35
    Jeannine Brenner says:

    Awesome release and beautiful inspiration!
    My best friend is defiantly my husband! I call him my girlfriend…he is always listening to me, he supports my crafting addiction, he is a wonderful Dad and we just have fun together! We have been married 16 years and he has been my BFF for every one of them!

  • 36
    Seldeyak says:

    I was lucky enough to marry mine. We understand each other and share life’s joys together. We have our ups and downs, but always manage to get through it. Though life with him working, sometimes, long hours and two young boys we still always try to make time for each other.

  • 37
    Josie Dee says:

    Can you have two best friends because I feel that I do! Janet is the one I have known since 1963 and while we are separated by distance, when we do get together we start in right where we left off. I hold a special place in my heart for her! Shelly is my near and dear friend who I see weekly and since 1980 she has been my rock…the one who has shared all of my good times and the bad, as I have also done for her. We’re having lunch today!

  • 38
    Janell says:

    Right now my best friend is probably my youngest daughter. I am helping her plan her wedding for this June so we are talking alot about that. Her being the youngest & still being at home we have fun with each other.

    sarah t says:

    My best friend is my sister. This hasn’t always been the case, especially when we were both teenagers, but with adulthood came an unbreakable bond. She is my first phone call when I have news – good or bad, and the person I plan any trip back to UK around.

  • 41
    Erika Hyde says:

    My best friend is my sister. There is no one else in the world who knows me as well as she does. Every time we are together we end up laughing til we cry. She is always there for me when I need a laugh, a cry, or parenting advice, and she is always one of the very first people I call with good news. Through thick and thin, even though sometimes we drive each other crazy, my sister has been my best friend since the day I was born.

  • 42

    I am sorry to repeat it, but my husband is my best friend. He is the only one I am able to tell everything and we laugh about the same things. I’ve seen so many so-called friends go, but he sticks with me and accepts me the way I am.

  • 43
    Lisa says:

    My mom is definitely my best friend. We have very similar personalities and we laugh a lot! We are both very crafty and always love to see wht the other is creating!

    My best friend is my sister, Bertha. We have been there for each other through life’s moments. She is a wonderful, caring person.

  • 45
    Keri H says:

    My husband is my best friend. We’ve been buddies since I was 12 years old so it was only fitting that I grew up to marry him. I simply cannot imagine life without him and thank God for him every day.

  • 46
    Stacy S. says:

    My husband. Because he truly knows me. He gets me. He’s not afraid to call me out. And because he loves me, all of me, the good and the bad.

  • 47
    annheidel says:

    Honestly, I don’t really have a best friend, at least not in the way I define it. I feel the lack keenly, but my sister and husband are the closest thing to it.

    My best friend is my husband. His unconditional love for me is amazing. I’m so blessed and thankful for him.

    My very best friend is my husband of 33 years! My best girlfriend is Linda. We met in 10th grade and have been very close ever since. I am very lucky to have these two people in my life.

  • 51
    Nita K. says:

    My best friend is someone I met my senior year of college. We were placed in the same cohort for student teaching. She is an amazing, faithful wife and mother and she is always here just when I need her. I also love her honesty and willingness to challenge me when I need it.

  • 52
    Karen says:

    Without a doubt, my husband of 40+ years is my best friend. He supports everything I do, is a fabulous father and grandfather, a terrific problem-solver, and is someone I can totally trust with anything!

  • 53
    Maria F says:

    My best friend is my husband because he is a wonderful human being.

  • 54
    Patti says:

    My best friend is Carol. We met over 20 years ago at a Cub Scout event, where we both volunteered our husband’s to be leaders. We’ve been laughing and crying together ever since, sharing our lives as we’ve raised our families. Carol has the most beautiful spirit. She loves unconditionally, is a wonderful listener and offers sound advice. I really don’t know what I would do with out her.

  • 55
    TraceyJean says:

    My best friend and I met because our parents were work friends. We got closer when I moved next door at around age 6. A few years later she moved away but we kept in touch. It’s been almost 40 years now and although we live in separate countries when we get together it’s like she’s still living 2 houses over. I love that she listens without judgment. She’s strong and smart and extremely supportive.

  • 56
    Wendy M says:

    Had to think about who I would call my ‘best’ friend and on reflection it has to be my husband. It’s our 10th anniversary in a few days and we’ve had an amazing journey together so far. He is so patient and unassuming.

  • 57
    Kate Temple says:

    I have so many close friends it is hard to say that one is my BEST friend…I think friendship is a fluid, living thing. As is natural in all relationships you are closer to certain people due to your current circumstances, but true friendships never die!

  • 58
    Kim S says:

    I know that I should pick my husband, but I’ve had my best friend even longer than I’ve had him. She and I have been on different paths our entire adult lives. When I was focused on career, she was having babies. When I had my children and decided to stay home, she was taking college courses. She is now in a high-powered job – lots of travel and she meets amazing people. I’m struggling to complete a second college degree to even get a job. Yet we always connect. We can always talk freely and get great advice. And she ALWAYS remembers the moments in my life.

  • 59
    Teresa Blue says:

    My best friend is a woman that I started kindergarten with. We been through thick and thin together. The loss of her mother when she was 13 and my father when I was 16. We shared all the ups and downs of teenage years and the challenges of adulthood. Don’t know what I would do without Carol Ann!

  • 60
    Kathy C. says:

    My best friend is Shirley. She has been with me through lots of ups and downs. I feel like I can talk to her about anything and she listens and doesn’t judge or criticize. I do the same for her.

  • 61
    Kathy says:

    My best friends were my mom and my husband. My mom was even my maid of honor when I got married. She kept asking me, “don’t you want to pick one of your friends?” But I didn’t, she was the best. And on my wedding day I married my other best friend and have enjoyed nearly 13 years together. Unfortunately, my mom passed away 12 years ago, but I do cherish all the wonderful memories.

  • 62
    ayn says:

    my BFF are now my kids. they are the ones that with me often. they listen to me and appreciate me. love my kids!!!

  • 63
    Ted says:

    Thought-provoking question, to be sure! If a best friend is somebody who knows you better than you know yourself…who loves you ABSOLUTELY unconditionally…and who would give His very life for you…then I would have to say my best friend is Jesus, without a doubt. I can honestly say that He has never left my side. I can’t say that about any mortal friend. πŸ™‚

  • 64
    Birgit says:

    I really can’t pick just one best friend because they’re all so dear to my heart. I would have to say that the Lord, Jesus Christ knows me inside and out and still loves me unconditionally. He knows all my faults and failures and yet he loves me still. Thanks for the chance to win.

  • 65
    Maria Benitez says:

    My best friend is my husband of 31 years. We have been through a lot together, and I feel I can always count on him.

  • 67
    May says:

    My best friend lives next door to me. I didn’t have a best friend growing up, so I feel extremely blessed to have one now, and a close one in so may ways. She shares my interests but we differ in ways that make our conversations interesting. She is a true gem!

  • 68
    Amanda says:

    My best friend is my husband. Over the years things have happened and friends have disappeared for one reason or another, but we are still as close as ever.

  • 69
    Sharon Jaeger says:

    My husband is my best friend…in fact his nick name from me is “Friendly”–as a noun! Whether it is about something earth shattering or mundane, he is the first person I want to tell. Experiencing all things in life side by side with him is simply amazing. I am truly blessed.

  • 70
    Monika Davis says:

    Like in many married woman’s case, my best friend is my husband. He understands me, often know what I want when I don’t even know… and he is the one who puts me in my place when needed. Sometimes we all need a little reminder of what to do and how to do it right… he also accepts me for who and how I am. My second best friend would be my childhood friend. We grew up together and have known each other since we were born! We only see each other once a year now, but when we do, we can talk freely to each other without reservations.

  • 71
    Lyn says:

    My best friend is Delwyn we meet as nursing students and helped each other through our course and since have shared many life events together both happy and sad ones. Why I consider her my very best friend is that I am just me with her and visa versa. We have both shared sooooo much in the last 30yrs and I love her like a sister

  • 72

  • 75

    My best friend is my cousin Tonya. We didn’t know each other growing up due to family drama between our mothers (who are sisters) and only found each other a couple of years ago thru facebook. I love her dearly and Im thankful every single day she is in my life!

  • 76
    Kris says:

    Although I have many close friends, my best friend is a Lara. I have known Lara for 32 years, since we were 12! Even if it has been awhile since we have spoken, I can pick up the phone anytime and feel like we just spoke!

  • 77
    Karen says:

    Hands down, my best friend is my husband. I’ve known him since I was sixteen….that was 37 years ago. We are closer now than ever. No matter what life brings, we seem to be able to stick it out. And, he’s completely supportive of my craft/art addiction!
    Thank you for the chance to win!

    My very best friend is Lynda. We met in college and have been “partners in crime” ever since! I’d be embarrassed to tell of some of our college shenanigans (good memories, though!) but am proud to say that we accepted Jesus Christ as our savior together, were baptized together, were in each others’ weddings, and were pregnant with our first daughters together who are now besties also! We call them “mini Connie and Lynda”.

    Jessica Kerr says:

    Honestly, I have to admit that I have two best friends – my husband, and my aunt.

    My husband and I have been together since we were 16 years old. And, although we’ve had our share of ups and downs, I wouldn’t trade him for the world!

    My aunt is ALWAYS there for me, through thick and thin. She was my babysitter when I was little, a mother figure as I grew, my matron of honor when I was married, and now godmother to my son.

    My handsome, athletic, encouraging, hard-working and supportive husband is my best friend. He’s ‘tolerant’ of my quirks, understands my issues, listens patiently to my concerns, celebrates my successes and applauds my card-making habit. He’s a gem! I’m also blessed to have my mom as my best friend. She’s a joy to be around; funny, generous, giving (she’s volunteered at the local senior centre for nearly 40 years), and all-around delightful. What a wonderful question you’ve asked: heart-warming!!

    My best friend is Kristine. We met in grad school, lost touch for a few years (my fault). A couple of years ago, I was in the hospital for 6 weeks and I got back in touch with her. It was like we had talked yesterday. When I was in the hospital she called me every day. She’s since been to visit me in the Midwest a couple of times and I’ve been to see her in Florida once. Lucky me, she is coming to visit again on Friday!

    I would have to say my big sister. Although she can still get on my nerves from time to time and can probably still whoop my butt, LOL, I can tell her anything and I know she will always be there for me (and would probably be willing to whoop someone else’s butt for me – JK!).

  • 156

    My best friend is my husband. We have been together for 37 years, married for almost 33. He always makes me laugh, and he was my rock when I was dealing with a sick aunt 2000 miles away and a father with Alzheimer’s. If only he wouldn’t think I should curtail my stamping and scrapping expenses!

    My College roomie! We spent 5 years living together and are more like sisters than friends. Even though we live in different states and only see each other once or twice a year, it’s like we were just with each other the previous day. We’re always there for each other and aren’t afraid to tell each other the truth- even when it hurts. I don’t know what i would do without her.

    Nadia Kendall says:

    Several come to mind from elementary school to Soldiers that deployed with me to Afghanistan. But the one who has been there throughout has to be my husband Will. He’s my Player 2 in video games, my co-pilot when we travel and my voice of reason when she leaves the building :). We’ve been together 20 years and can almost finish eachother’s sentences…maybe in another 20 years we’ll get it down.

    My best friend Barbara, has been the most supportive and constant friend. I went through a hard time at work in which I was bullied and finally ended up quitting my job of 20 years.

  • 181
    Linda says:

    I am so blessed to have many great friends in my life but I would have to say Sue is my best. We share our love of all things stamping related as well as so many others. A few years ago I found out I had cancer and she was with me every step of the way. Sue did so many things to help me through that rough year in my life and I am so lucky to have her in my life. I wish everyone had a Sue in their life.

She just welcomed the cutest baby boy in December so I am definitely thinking of making the trek up to see her soon! πŸ™‚ Love Ya Audra!!! πŸ™‚

    LisaE says:

    My husband is my best friend because we can talk about anything. We have just the right things in common and are complementary in just the right traits, also, which makes him a wonderful sounding board. He is extremely patient where I am a ‘get it done’ person. He’s more spontaneous and I have to plan, plan, plan. He’s just what I need in a friend – a good listener, someone fun, honest and who always supports me.

    In family, it is my Mother – she is 92 and, just like my grandmother (her mother), she is like the energizer bunny! Although we don’t talk about EVERYTHING (!), we do agree on quite a bit. I enjoy taking her out to dinner and helping her around the house. My BFF right now is my friend Tricia, and we talk nearly every day. We don’t always agree, but we are able to get around those things we don’t agree on, and that’s important. Plus we have FUN when we do things together. Isn’t that what it’s all about?

  • 202
    SherrieT says:

    My best friend is my husband. I guess because we started off as friends/coworkers. Our friendship grew and we became great friends and found we had much in common. Then while I was helping him shop for Christmas gifts for his nieces and nephews something clicked and I realized that I loved him in spite of his craziness and I couldn’t live without him. I guess he felt the same way because that was 24 years ago. He is still the first one I turn to for every good, bad and sad time. I never get tired of his company! I am so blessed and thank God for him every day. He is a wonderful father and an incredible husband and friend! My life truly is a fairy tale.

    I met my best friend Carole over thirty-five years ago during my university years. From the moment we met we just clicked and have been there for each other ever since. Even though we haven’t lived in the same place for many years when we do get together it feels like we’ve never been apart.

    Mariann is my best friend. We just get each other. She is a breast cancer survivor for over 10 years. When she would go through treatments I would send her a card every day of that week? She created this beautiful collage of cards that is on her bedroom wall. Such a nice thing to do. But also reminds her of her surviving. Love that girl!!!!

    My best friend, Laurel and I became best buds in 1st grade. She was one of ten children…9 girls and 1 boy. We we’re class mates through school and college. We connected through out marriage, motherhood, and becoming grandparents. She recently earned her wings. I’m so thankful for all the wonderful memories we shared.

    while my husband is my best friend, I also have a very special friend that is quite a bit older than I am but is a wonderful lady; with her I don’t have to be someone I’m not and she is always ready to lend a helping hand or to be there in listen. We laugh, cry, and carry on and can be who we are without trying to live up to anyone. I wouldn’t trade her friendship for anything and is really the only person I’ve really ever kept a friendship going with for so long.

    I am lucky enough to have a best friend – her name is Sonya. We met 30 years ago as college freshman and finding her is one of my life highlights. She makes me laugh, listens to my ramblings and stories, she’s decisive when I’m not, she’s even-tempered when I’m anxious or worked up, and she knows me better than most anyone I know. Everyone should have at least one friend like my best friend.

    My best friend is my sister. We’ve been through a lot together and I know I can ALWAYS count on her. She struggles everyday with health issues. She has been through so much in her life and yet she always has a smile on her face and stays happy. She loves life. She says we all have a choice to be upset or mad or happy. She chooses happy. I can say that she truly lives her life through her faith. I don’t know many people that live every single day through their faith. When I’m feeling down, I think of everything she has been through and my situation seems very small compared.

    Lauren says:

    While I am blessed to have several great girlfriends that I can count on, my best friends are my husband and my mom. As we grow up and move away, start families, etc…, it becomes harder to stay as close to our old friends as we once were. New friends are wonderful, but there isn’t the history that allows for total candor and inside jokes. That is why my hubby and my mom are my constants. They are the ones that I can turn to, no matter what.

When something good happens (births of our children, new job, promotion, etc) you want to share that special moment with the people you love, and when bad things happened (my parents and husband death, her divorce)there’s not better comfort than the one from a good friend.

    My best friend is Mar. She is the most selfless person I know. She is the kind of friend that is there for me no matter what. She listens, where some of my fiends only want me to listen to them. She took care of her Dad for four years before he passed and I saw the dedication and love it took to do this. She is an angel on earth. She has the ability to see when people are hurting and what they need. She is always taking care of elderly people and you could say she has a gift where people are concerned. I feel very fortunate that she picked me to be her best friend. I truly feel honored!

  • 341

    My husband. He is an amazingly, supportive man. He works hard to provide for his family. He provides the funding I need for my little Africa mission and allows me the time it takes to do the work.
    I am a VERY BLESSED person.

    My best friend is my husband. We have only been married 9 years, but in that 9 years, he has taught me so many things about myself, and about caring for others.

    My very best friend is my hubby. Besides the fact that my life with him is The BEST, he is a wonderful person. And … he built me an amazing craft studio. And helped me move out of the space, and then back in again. It’s a wonderful sunroom with lots of windows, and he actually enjoys coming out there and sitting at my table, chatting with me while I stamp and cut and diecut and color. Happy times, indeed!

    My best friend is Nancy. She has been there for me for over 17 years. She is a second mom to my children, she has talked me off a ledge (not literally) many times, gives great advice and only lets me wallow in self-pity for a second, before showing me how lucky I truly am. She is a godsend, and I am lucky to be a part of her life.

    My best friend is my sister. She always has been and always will be. She is my only sister and we grew up with six brothers. We were both in the middle of the pack and lived on a street where there weren’t any other girls our age. We were playmates growing up and confidants as we got older. We both share the same strange sense of humor and have a blast when we are together. I would do anything for her and I know she would do the same for me.

Dina, her Mom and Dad always welcomed me into their home regardless of the time or situation. They gave me lots of advice that I still refer to today. They were my Angels, always watching over me! We have been friends for MANY years and although we no longer live close to each other, whenever the phone rings, it’s as if we just saw each other an hour ago. I am very blessed to have someone so special in my life !

    My best friend is also named Mary. We’ve known one another since grade school. We became best buds in high school, roomed together after college, (our spouses were also roommates in the same apartment complex), and are godparents to one another’s children. Although we now live in different states, when we get together it’s like we just saw one another yesterday. Great release.

    I actually have 3 best friends. We studied to get our Masters degrees together and when we graduated we looked at each other and thought “We don’t want this to end” and we’ve continued to plan outings and get togethers for the last 20 years or so. We’ve been there for each other through divorces and deaths and births and unemployed children and Afganistan and moves and Parkinsons and we’ll always be there for each other. Louise, Debbie and Andrea – I love you!

I can tell her anything and she does not judge, but only offers words of assurance and good advice. She was my maid of honor, we’ve been through pregnancies and now motherhood together. She is my rock and I can’t imagine life without her.

    I am married so most people would think I would say my dear hubby. I also have a daughter and some may think that would be my answer. My mother also lives with hubby and I and as close as we are this still would not be my answer. My answer would actually be my oldest grandson. He was my first and has been through quite a bit in his few 8 years. My daughter was not very mature when he was born so hubby and I had custody of him. We have a very wonderful friendship and he would absolutely be my very Best Friend!!!

She has a heart of gold, makes me laugh, is always there for me when I need her, is completely honest and gently tells me things I need to hear. She also shares my love (addiction) of paper crafting and copics. When I am not completely satisfied with a card she says, ‘do you wanna do it again?’ This always makes me realise it’s ok lol.

She makes me laugh, she knows what I’m thinking without me saying a word, she can finish my sentences, she likes what I like and we can talk every day and not run out of things to say. I could go on and on about her. I don’t know what I would do without her – I love her with all my heart =)

We both have a love for music and have played our flutes together so much that we automatically know what the other one is going to do. We don’t even need to tune before we play since we are always “in tune.” My other BFF is my mom. She is my rock and my best bud. I don’t know what I would do without her. I am truly blessed.

    My best friend is an incredible person named Faith. I met her when I was 18 at Emory University. I was visiting a friend that went to college there. I can say it was love at first sight. We would drive around Atlanta all night, stay up at the crack of dawn laughing at IHOP. She has been there for me through many failed relationships. She has been here for the marriage to my husband, the birth of my son. And even though she has moved twice and is very far away from me, we talk on the phone everyday. We still grocery shop and cook together via the telephone and FaceTime. She is the only one who understands me and speaks my crazy. When we are 90, we will share a room together in the nursing home or looney bin.

    I have several best friends but if I’m being honest however the one I would actually call my “very best friend”, light of my life, my little sunshine, happens to be my precious little Bentley(my Yorkie Poo). He is the one there during the worst of times, the best of times, and he is there to comfort me when no one else is. He gives a love that is unconditional and he brings a smile to my face every single day! I don’t know what I would do without him. I know my response may be considered unconventional, but I’m sure there are others that have a love just like this. It is truly a love like no other:). For the record, I don’t have children of my own so my furbabies have always been like children to me. And I do have several “best friends” that I can’t just choose one for that title and those friends have been by my side for a very long time but I wanted to respond with the one that I truly consider my very best friend and that is without a doubt my precious little Bentley Beau:)

She was very nice to me, the new and youngest kid on the block! LOL! We became great friends very fast. She has been there for me through all ups and downs – break ups, child birth, job loss, and most recently she took 2 weeks off from work to care for me when I had to have my breast removed due to breast cancer. Only a best friend can empty a drain tube and remove a pain pump for you! I love her for life and thank God daily for putting her in my life. I strive to be as good a friend to her as she has been to me.

    A girl I met in 6th grade. To this day we still enjoy spending time together. Even though we now live far apart we still often call on Sundays and catch up. She has such a kind heart and is always there for me.

    Without a doubt, my husband is my best friend. We have been married for 44 years …..plus 2 years of dating. We have raised to beautiful, talented daughters and have 6 of the best grandchildren we could ever hope for. Going through some very serious health problems about 5 years ago definitely brought us even closer together. I love him more today than I could ever imagine…..

    I have two best friends.

    My first best friend- my sister. We get each so well and kind of speak our own language in a way. She’s always there for me.

    My other best friend is my fiance. We have so much fun together and he understands me well.

    Julie Rae says:

    My husband is hands-down my best friend; I trust him implicitly. That may sound naive but after 31 years of marriage, I’d say he’s my go-to guy for everything a friend has to offer.

    My best friend is Stephanie. We’ve been friends for over 20 years. I used to see her every day and now that we both have kids and careers, I only get to see her a couple times a year. But, whenever we do get to see each other, it’s like we just saw each other yesterday. We talk and laugh and we can still finish each other’s sentences! She’s like my sister.

    I have many friends who love and support me but only one person who loves me unconditionally, warts and all, and that is my Mom. She is a kind and beautiful person, and I am grateful to have her in my life.

    My best friend would have to be my husband. He is wonderfully supportive but never let’s me take myself too seriously. After 29 years he can still make me laugh.

    Judith says:

    My best friend is Diane. I taught school with her for several years. We shared concerns and laughs often. One of the things I like about her is that if our lives get busy and we don’t see each other often, there’s no hard feelings. There’s no pressure with her. We can just pick up where we left off. We share many of the same values and interests and hobbies, so it’s fun to get together over the phone or in person to visit.

    My best friend is Marilynn. We have been friends for over thirty years. We met when I started teaching at the school she was teaching at. We became fast friends and best supporters. We were so close, we even retired at the same time. No matter what good or bad times we go through, we are the other’s best source of support.

    It’s hard to pick just one person! I enjoy the company of so many people for many different reasons. I think the person who I can talk about anything with is my friend Patty. She doesn’t judge, she just listens!

    Amy. The one person I know that is there, all in, joys and sorrows. All I have to do is call. There have been times (like when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, my parents,brother and nephew passed or I had a granddaughter ) when I barely got words out. All she says is “I’m coming”. The beauty of this friendship is special on many levels.
