Gonna try a little help from my friends....

"What would you do if I sang out of tune,

Would you stand up and walk out on me?

Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song

And I'll try not to sing out of key.



Oh, I get by with a little help from my friends..."


My BFF called today. You know she's one of those friends who isn't judgmental, tells you exactly how it is in a less blunt sugarcoated sorta way rather than the approach i go for, you know blunt, sheer honesty, and i call it like i see it, a spade's a spade, and loves you unconditionally. I'm an only child, and she's the sister I never had. She is my family. She is my sister, and we may not be bound by blood; but, we are sisters ever the same. And, today, her phone call broke my heart. I cannot divulge the information. Well, she won't even discuss it with her own sister. That's how tight we are. But, it literally breaks my heart. We've been through everything together. 10 whole years. That's a decade, and in all reality, as of right now, that's a third of my life as it is today. I'm so lucky to have her in my life! So, today, friends, I'm hurting too:( When she hurts, I hurt. That's just how it is when you love someone that much. Their pain is your pain. I will say this, she's not dying nor does she have an illness or has lost her job or anything with our friendship. It's just a big decision she's facing. It's life changing, and I'll be with her every step of the way. When she steps, I'll step. Or if I step, I'll just drag her along with me. That's how we roll. Sometimes the other just needs a little push or little pull. But, neither of us leaves the other behind. We're in it together. Friendships are like relationships. They take work, compromise, spending time together, and all those warm, fuzzy things. So, when you say "Goodnight, Moon", say a little prayer for her.  I am.

Aw.. I have a friend who we've been together so long that I can't remember a time without her. We met in 1st grade & have been through it all.

Your friend will be in our prayers. I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. We may not understand why we're struggling with the difficult times, but eventually we do. Those are typically the moments we truly discover who we are.
