I'm a normal girl, pretty average in every way, but I have a group of friends that are just plain extraordinary. They make me laugh until I pee, cry like a baby, think outside the box, and teach me all kinds of new things, and this is all within a ten minute period. We can go without seeing each other for over a month and then pick up right where we left off. We try to get together twice a year for a long weekend in the mountains and we scrapbook, eat yummy homemade food (and a lot of junk food), watch movies, have "Music of the Frickin' Night", and talk, talk, talk. We have been doing this for close to ten years and I hope when we are in our eighties, we are still getting together talking about unmentionable things and laughing our guts out. Each one brings something special and unique to the group and it wouldn't be the same if any one person was missing. We all accept each other just as we are and it's a comforting feeling to be with them and so hard to leave them when the time comes. These girls mean the world to me and I don't know what I'd do without them. Here's to another 50 years together!

I just gave Suzie the blog award for MOST BLESSED blog, then I read this. What do I do? Can I give you the award too? Can we call it a tie? Without being too sappy...I am so glad we met 10 yrs ago and that we were both COOL enough to stay friends ever since. Without a doubt, we will only get better with time. I really do feel so lucky to have you as a friend! Love you!

You said it perfectly! I don't know what I'd do without you either. I hope our friendship lasts AT LEAST 50 more years. Love you!
