I have one person who will always be my best friend.... my Mum. ?? We are so close, always have been, always will be and she is the one person I tell everything to. Yep, EVERYTHING! lol roll eyes
Besides Mum, I have one friend whom I consider my "bestie." We have been friends for over 20 years now and no matter where our lives have taken us, we have remained close. She moved from SA to Darwin about 5 years ago and I miss her so, so much! sad We talk about once a month on the phone (shes not into facebook or e-mail) and 3 hours later we hang up! blink laugh
I have 2 kids and married young, she was my Maid of Honour... she is still not married and has no children. But despite that, our friendship has never faltered. She is one person I can be completely honest with, even tell her when I think shes being an idiot - lol! - and there is no harm done between us. No matter what, shes always there... and that to me is a true friendship. God I miss that girl though! sad ??
Here in SA I have quite a large and diverse group of friends. A couple of them I am quite close to, we look after each others kids etc and see each other every day at school drop off, pick up... others I don't see a lot, but we catch up when we can. Not all my friends are friends with each other, not in a sense that they don't like each other, just that we mixin different circles, but when they all come together they all get along. If that makes sense??
I consider myself very rich when it comes to friends and aquaintances. I have some amazing people in my life and wouldn't swap them for anything.
