My Best Friend

People say that if you only have one good friend in this world then you should consider yourself lucky. I consider myself beyond lucky to have mine. We didn't grow up together, we were not childhood friends, and we weren't college roommates. In fact we did not run in the same circles at all before we met, but in the short 7 years of knowing her I feel so blessed that for some reason God placed her into my life. We have so much in common that at times I feel as if we could have been separated at birth. We have the same name, our husbands are both from Brazil, we have the same hobbies and interests (which by the way can make us both a little OCD at times), our 5 yr. olds were born a day apart, we both know what it is like to grow up without our fathers present in our lives, we also know what it's like to grow up with the most amazing grandmothers in the world and they are our biggest heroes, we both struggle with our weight-and we have tried every diet out there together as well..lol. We get each others corny sense of humor and no one in this world makes me laugh like she does. Most friendships will have ups and downs and it's the valuable friendships that are worth working through, but I can honestly say it's been the difficult parts of our journey together that make me realize how much she really means to me and how grateful I am to call her "friend".
