Best Forever Friend.

Today is Helen's day. I wish everyday could be her day.
I truly have the best friend ever, I didn't hand pick her, if I did I couldn't of done any better.
Our friendship started about 7 years ago, I met her husband first at a meeting we were both attending, we had a few common interests and our paths crossed a few times. One day out of the blue one day he said that he wanted me to meet his wife. He felt that we had a lot in common and that he was sure we would hit it off. His instincts were right, I had felt that I had know her a lifetime, instantly we became friends.
Over the years our friendship has strengthened, we have suffered together, rejoiced together, one thing never changing how much I adore and love my friend.
Helen gives so much of herself to others, she volunteers countless hours, donates to such wonderful causes and still finds enough time to always be the best friend. Not only is she special to me but my girls adore their special Aunt, for a lady not having her own children(no I stand corrected, she has 3 fur babies)she is so supportive. Many a night when we first come home from China I was on the phone with her, tears flowing and feeling at wits end(sleep deprived), she was able to calm me in an instant.
So today as I sit thinking of her I want to say "thank you" for being such a great friend. You are our family, we love you very much.
