Is there a best friend?
When I was little, I used to believe
> in the concept of one best friend,
> and then I started to become a woman.
> And then I found out that if you allow your heart
> to open up, God would show you the best in many
> One friend is needed when you’re
> going through things with your man.
> Another friend is needed when you’re
> going through things with your mom.
> Another when you want to shop,
> share, heal, hurt, joke, or just be.
> One friend will say let’s pray together, another
> let’s cry together, another let’s fight together,
> another let’s walk away together.
> One friend will meet your spiritual
> need, another your shoe fetish, another
> your love for movies, another will be with
> you in your season of confusion, another will be
> your clarifier, another the wind beneath your wings.
> But whatever their assignment in your life,
> on whatever the occasion, on whatever the day,
> or wherever you need them to meet you with their gym
> shoes on and hair pulled back, or to hold you back
> making a complete fool of yourself … those are
> your best friends.
> It may all be wrapped up in one woman,
> but for many it’s wrapped up in several…
> one from 7th grade, one from high school, several
> from the college years, a couple from old jobs,
> several from church, on some days your mother,
> on some days your neighbor, on others your sisters,
> and on some days your daughters.
> So whether they’ve been there 20 minutes or 20
> Appreciate all those that God has placed in your life.
