Mon Nov 1

Today I am grateful for my best friend, Bethany.

You might remember my post about visiting Bethany in Missouri back in August 2008. If not, you can read about that here. A quick background to my friendship with Bethers. We met online in the late 90s when we were both trying to conceive our 2nd children. We met through a Christian moms group and just clicked. When that group split up, we didn't. We talk daily via email or text messages. We talk on the phone weekly or more. Truly, it's like she & I have a DNA link or something. We always laugh about the strange commonalities we discover from time to time. Bethany is one of my very favorite people in the whole world. I love her to death. Even though we've only spent that 1 weekend face to face, distance doesn't take away from our friendship. When I think of best friends, she's at the top of my list. We may not have a lifetime of memories together, but we know each other's heart & souls and that's all that matters now. Bethany ALWAYS makes me laugh & can read my mind & finish my sentences usually. We make fun of each other's spelling & grammatical mistakes on Facebook (because we're both spelling & grammar nerds) and listen to each other's PMS stories. We laugh at the same jokes and care about the same issues. Although our lives are different & our homes are 1200 miles apart, it feels like we've always known each other.

I love my sweet girlfriend. Now if I can only figure out a way to get her to move to Texas. Hmm....
