What Does Your Friend Mean To You And Why? - Girls City Getaway

She is the 3am friend I've always wanted to be for someone and to find someone like that to call a friend. It took me 28 years to meet her. 

The first time we spoke on the phone it went on for an hour! Our conversations just flowed and then the second time and finally we met at Thanksgiving and talked until 4am in the morning! She had to leave at 6am the same morning to drive all the way back to California with her family. 

We were visiting our husbands parents in Arizona. She from CA and me from LA. 

Since then we've been inseparable....through the phone line. We talk pretty much every day! Everything flows so well between us, you'd think we were twins. It's amazing. 

We are both in trying relationships and I would love for her to get a break to anywhere and Blogher, New York City sounds like the perfect place! I mean most of my bloggy friends are going to be there too!

She is someone I can talk to about anything at all and not feel judged or she doesn't try to fix it. I can call her at anytime and she is there to listen. I've never been able to trust anyone like that before and it's amazing the joy in my spirit with just having someone like her to interact with. Sometimes I am so upset and can't even breathe, not even sure I want to talk on the phone and sure that if anything else pops up, I'll have a stroke! 
She'll call and we'll talk about regular stuff and just start laughing and the stress just melts away.  

She means a great deal to me and I love her. I'm so glad I got to meet her and I feel that as the years pass, nothing will become a wedge between us.

I used to pray for a friend and thank God for answered prayers. 

My sister-in-law.

My best friend.
