Watching them reminded me of the story on the Today Show and I started to think about the relationships I have in my life. It goes without saying that we marry our best friend but I think its healthy and normal to have a sfebff. Its nice to have someone to do all the things with that our husband cant or doesn't want to do. Like going to lunch and getting a pedi, or jean, purse and shoe shopping. Its nice to have someone to do yoga with and to listen to daily vents, ya know someone who understands girl talk. I don't care how old you are girl time is so very important. Just the other night my sister went out for girl time because her hubby was going out of town for a few days and needed to recharge before he left. My teenage girls need girl time everyday after school to unwind and discuss the events of the day. What boy said hi or who the new hottie is and my nine year old needs girl time at least one night every weekend. They stay up and giggle and do make overs and play pretend...we all need girl time. It makes us happy.
I don't have any idea how I would have done the last two years without my sfebff. There have been many days and nights where I have cried and vented. Where she told me what I needed to hear not what I wanted to hear. I've learned so many things from her and am a better person because of her and the way she loves me. I don't think there is anything she wouldn't do for me and there isn't anything I can't ask her to do or tell her.
I don't know of any rule that says who your sfebff has to be. I think your lucky if your sisters happen to be that for you. In fact I think you're pretty lucky if you have a sfebff. I think that God gave us our best friends to help us get through life. So, here's to girl time, sfebff's and getting through life!
