Always There

I had a few different plans for what I was going to post about today, but last night, that all took a bit of a turn.

Yesterday was a pretty hellish day.  Don't get me wrong, I am the type of person that believes that every day that I am above ground is a good day, but yesterday sure had it's moments when this Mommy monkey could have totally flipped out.

So... I spent the evening yesterday venting it all out to my bestie, and it really made me realize how lucky I am to have her in my life... especially as much as I do.

So, in honor of her, today you are going to learn a little about myself and Bestie Monkey!

This is a picture of myself and her... at work.  Yes, how lucky am I that I get to work with my best friend every day?!

A little background.  We both used to work at our local airport.  This is where we met.  We became close friends, and then she quit... up and left me.  I was sad, but I still was able to hang with her outside of work, which is what was most important to me anyway.  Shortly after she left, I had left for another job as well.  She contacted me and told me that the company she worked for was hiring... for the same department.  I applied, and voila, we are once again together every day.

She is a mom of 2 as well.  We have watched each others kids grow up.  We still hang out outside of work. We live 2 miles away from each other.  We know almost everything about each other.  We finish each others sentences.  We buy the same clothes without coordinating.  We wear said clothes on the same day... without coordinating.  She is my soul sister... forever.

We have had so many fun, interesting and scary adventures together.  One thing always remains the same though, no matter what we go through, it becomes a memory for us, and we can always laugh about it later.

We have so many things in common it's almost scary.  We are, however, very different in many ways as well.  While we can read each others minds, we can also surprise each other quite a bit with some of the things we say to each other as well.

She has seen me go through hell, and helped me to overcome it and see the positive.  I like to say that I have done the same for her, but she is so strong, I don't really know if I have helped or not.  Ha.

I am extremely happy for her.  She is in a relationship that she seems to be very happy in.  She loves him, he loves her, they move in together, and live happily ever after (or at least this is what we hope for).  I wish nothing but the very best for them.

I love her more than words can say.  She deserves nothing but the best for her and her kids.  And this is me thanking her publicly for always being my rock.  Always having a shoulder for me to cry on.  Always having me and the monkeys backs.  Always being a true friend.  I couldn't live without her.  And don't worry, she will see this... and probably give me hell because she hates that pic of us... but I think we look like 2 hot chickie's... so there, girlie, take that!!

Love you bestie.  Thank you... for EVERYTHING!

Do you have someone like this in your life?  What is your favorite part of your relationship with them?

Have a great Tuesday Monkey Manics!
