3.19 My Best Friend

Bestest Friend and I are in the middle of a blog project. Each day of the month we will post a picture on a pre-determined theme and write a little something about it. The theme for the nineteenth day of each month is "My Best Friend."
****************************
You know who called or texted me on my birthday?  Bestest Friend, two other close friends, and my favorite sister-in-law.  You know who didn't contact me at all? My mother or my sister.

Sometimes your family is not made up of individuals who are related to you by blood. Sometimes your family is made up of the folks who come into your life at just the right moment and make everything that was wrong just go away.  Sometimes your family is made up of imperfect individuals who are perfectly fitted to understand you and everything that makes you tick. It's the people who  understand your inner torments, roll their eyes when you use the phrase "inner torments," and never ask why you're calling.  It's the people who actually know what you're thinking without the veil of niceness or appropriateness covering your innermost truths.

Presents from Bestest Friend. Not just anyone can send you a greeting card calling you a whore.

True family remembers to call you on your birthday.
