Something I'm Grateful For...

I know that we all either have, or are looking for, the "love of our life". It's obviously part of our nature to crave it and want it in our lives.

I think what we all should have, as well, is that one "friend". That person who helps us be a little happier, who gives us someone to tell our secrets to, when we can't tell anyone else. The person who never seems to pass judgement, who just 100% accepts us for who we are. Sure, we can disagree, even outright fight with them now and then, but it's never hard to get past it, even laugh about it.

This person can help us not be scared. They'll tell us that it will be ok, even if they're not so sure themselves at the moment. Sometimes, they don't even realize how powerful their effect on our lives is. But on the other hand, they do know exactly when to get in touch, to say hello, or I love you.

I don't think any life is really complete without one of those people in it. I'm lucky, cause I have one.

Just one of my "philosophical moments" here tonight.


  1. I'm not one to make and keep friends. So as it turns out, my husband is my best friend.

  2. nice of you to acknowledge me in your journal like that. I'm glad you appreciate me!
    ; )

    Seriously, I do agree. And I do have that one girlfriend...and she and I both are able to let each other know how much we value one another. Thanks for the reminder.


  3. You are all heart, jimmy. So glad you have someone like that.

    I have a lot of girlfriends, but they kinda come and go; There are a few that I can totally count on and confide in. However I guess it would be nice to have that constant companion (husband) that I can completely lean on. I will say that my parents are my huge support system. I don't know what I'd do w/o them.

    It's always good to be grateful.

  4. It's nice to have both together -the love of your life, and your best friend. I think that's the way it should be, really.


I love comments. I won't lie about that!
