We get by with a little help from our friends

It is amazing what talking to your best friend on the phone will do for your spirits and mood.

PJ and I have been friends since the third grade. We had a few years apart after high school when we'd gone our separate ways, but since our 10 year reunion, have rekindled a friendship that I don't think ever really went away. We'd be closer if we lived closer, but we do the best we can with her in California and me in Texas. All I can say is thank goodness for free nights and weekend cell phone minutes and mobile to mobile calling!

Since she got married and I got busy, we don't talk as much as either of us would like, so generally our conversations are between things when we can fit them in or marathon two and a half hour conversations like last night. It's funny, when we have the marathon calls, we discuss/vent issues in our lives, then we solve all the problems in the world (if only the world would listen to us).

We always end the phone calls smiling and feeling better for having talked to one another. It's nice to have a best friend.

There are those people that you connect with so well that it doesn't matter if you don't see or speak to each other for months, when you do get to speak it's like you are continuing a conversation from the day before. So wonderful to have those people in our lives.

And I think you look very much like your stick figure avatar (I assume that is you in the blue?) except that the stick figure has pony tails sticking out, which is perhaps a little too informal for a wedding...;)

Ahh, if only I were as thin as the stick figure!

It's awesome to have friends like that, where no matter the span of time, you just fall back in place.
