Boy am I lucky to have the world's best friends

Do you ever sit and think about how lucky you are to have friends? I realized how lucky I was when I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 33 just 7 months ago. Today I honor 2 special women in my life. Each friend brings something different to my life. I have one friend that we go way back, all the way to highschool. We were the type that drove to a local "beach" (more like a secret fishing hole) in the summer (did I mention everyday we would do this) to work on our tans. We are now both wives and mothers of 2 wonderful children and we are better friends then ever. She is so special to me and I don't know what I would do without her friendship. She has been such a wonderful support to me and words can not express how thankful I am to have her in my life. She makes me laugh and I know I can count on her for anything. I love our friendship and when I think of all the memories we have I smile. Another friend that I honor today is a friend I have had for about 8 years. This friend makes me laugh and has a way of always putting others first and really letting you know you are cared for. She has so many wonderful traits, she is the best gift giver as she puts so much thought into everything she gives, she is a great listener, and she is an amazing person that I really look up to as the standard of just a wonderful soul. I feel like I have known her forever. She is truly a blessing and I am so happy we are great friends. These 2 special women win my "friends of the year" award and I only hope I can be to them what they are to me, a TRULY GREAT FRIEND! I honor you both and thank you with all my heart for everything, I love you guys!!!!

It has taken me a long time to respond to this. I couldn't find the words and honestly still can't. So, I'll tell you what I said when I read it. As I read with David next to me, tears poured down face, and I said I'm not worthy of that, and if I am, it's because I model myself after her. I want to be more like her, kind, caring, generous and brave. As I cried happy tears and David rubbed my back I then took a deep breath and said "Hey, she didn't mention any names, maybe she's talking about someone else. Don't I feel stupid now." We both laughed ("Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion."), David smiled at me and said "Of course she's talking about you!" Thank you Nichol for not just making my day, but making my life, you are everything a friend could be.
