Best Friends

It took me 50 years to find my BFF.  I had never known anyone like her.  Once we became friends my world was literally turned inside out.  Her husband got ill & we went through his death together.  That will certainly help to bond or break a friendship.  But there were moves within the same apartment complex on my part & her part & we helped each other through that & she had a knee replaced & my husband & I helped her with that.  I always say that I honestly don’t know who helped who the most though.  She honestly has been wonderful to & for me.  She has been an asset to my husband as well.  She listens to me & she doesn’t automatically take my side or his.  And, after she lost her husband it helped me to understand that sometimes the little things just aren’t THAT important & to let them go.  I learned that I would rather my husband live a short life & NOT have a wife that nagged at him for various things than to have a long life & have a nagging wife.  (One of things is losing weight & yes, he would be healthier but not necessarily happier.)  I had to let that go.  Anyway, our friendship defies science.  For the longest time, when my BFF gets stressed, my neck will break out in bumps that itch.  I have seen more than my share of dermatologists that cannot explain this to me nor have they been able to treat it properly.  We moved almost a year ago about 1500 miles away.  I texted my BFF last Wednesday & asked her if she was in the hospital.  She texted back that indeed she was in the Emergency Room waiting to be admitted & how did I know?  Those are the things that science cannot explain but that makes our friendship very special.  Anyway, I am sending her a “Get Well” card & you know the drill, it comes from no other than Bugaboo Stamps:  www.Bugaboostamps.com/

I was putting Nurse Ratchett on the name tag.  hehe  The hours on visiting hours were a combination of my husband & myself:  he said to make them very short like 20 minutes.  I said, “I’m going to say, ‘The patient is here to Get Well, Have Your Family Reunion At Home.'”  He thought that was funny so that is all the encouragement I needed.  Here is my card.  I hope you enjoy it & I hope that my BFF enjoys it too:
