Freindship is like Peeing Your Pants

.... Everyone can see it, only you can feel it!

You know how it is when you are with friends or family, and you want to tell them just how important they are to you, but it never comes out just the right way? You end up laughing or breaking eye contact, and it all gets brushed aside as a meaningless bit of conversation to pass the time.

You rehearse the words you want to say over and over, in the shower, in the car, across the table from them at coffee, but you can't quite work up the courage to lay your heart bare, and then the moment is gone. Maybe forever... Well that isn't going to happen to me, not today.

Kiss_My_Glass, you are my best friend, you are more then that; I love you.

I met Kiss in the fall of '97, we were both in University, and she was working full time hours on top of that. We were great friends, but not best friends for a year. And then, we sort of drifted away. In 99, at almost eight months pregnant, Jitteryjoe and I were married. My clearest memory of my wedding day is walking down the isle of the church, trying so hard not to cry - my make up had taken HOURS - I was looking for anything to distract me, and I found it in a smear of make-up on Jit's suit jacket. I busied myself trying to figure out who was here that was short enough to leave the mark. But came up with no names.

Imagine my surprise when Kiss came up to us afterwards. Jit knew she was there the whole time, he had seen her, and hugged her before the wedding (hence the make up on the tux). She had heard from a friend that we were getting married and decided to crash the wedding.

This was the best idea she has EVER had.

Kiss is the one I talk to when I am sad or angry. She is the first person I think of when I have happy news to tell. I have been known to tell her about a positive pregnancy test before my own husband. Kiss and I joke that we are sisters, but we are much more then just sisters. She is a part of me.

We have never successfully fought with each other, though we have tried. She has saved me from myself more times then I can count. Above all, she is always, Always there for me. No matter what the situation, I can count on her. I hold her in my heart in the same way I hold on to my boys. I love her.

If I was into carpet cleaning, Kiss would be my soulmate. Weather she wanted to be or not.

Kiss : I don't have the words to properly explain to you, exactly how much you mean to me. Hallmark has never made a card that covered this emotion, this deeply.

Happy Birthday Kiss, Be Happy.

Best friends are special. I met mine in 5th grade. We sat by each other on the bus everyday so we didn't have to sit by anyone else, but we never talked to each other. We didn't become friends until 7th grade, but we've been friends ever since...30 years!

Glad you and Kiss are best are both lucky!

Oh man, that choked me up a little bit. If Kiss didn't cry when she read all that, then she has a heart of steal!

Beautiful Blue, seriously.

That was really beautiful, Blue. She is lucky to have you as a friend, but from your description, it sounds like you are lucky to have her, too.
