I Have a Friend.

I have a friend who loves me the way I am but who also longs to see me grow as a Woman of God. She has taught me to take more pictures, capture moments and dream big.

I have a friend who knew me inside and out the instant she met me. She can calm me with simply a touch. Her sharp wit brings laughter to my life and sharpens mine as well.

I have a friend who knows everything. Every step, moment, mistake and victory of my past. She has been my rock through my toughest times and been present to experience the best of them as well. I know she will always be there no matter what.

I have a friend who compliments me. She is my better half and we understand so much of each other. I haven’t fallen into step with someone so quickly and each day we become closer-even if she makes all the phone calls.

I have a friend-she is my newest friend and I can tell we are kindred spirits already. I look forward to knowing her better each day.

I have a friend who is my bosom friend. She shares my passions for literature, drama, family and a good dare. The hurt we have walked through has drawn us closer and the healing we share moves us forward. She is the light of my life.

I have a friend who teaches me generosity in a way I have never experienced. She makes amazing cookies and is ready to share her wisdom whenever I may call. She loves my kids and frankly her sweet dog is the best dog of all the dogs.

I have a friend who makes me laugh. And laugh and laugh and laugh. Her personal journey towards self improvement and spiritual growth encourages me to follow that path.

I have a friend who has known me every day of her life. I have only lived 388 days without her but even that was too many. Simply put, I do not breathe without her. I wouldn’t want to try. I will love her forever.

May you be as blessed as I.


  1. Bethany, this was beautiful. It makes me think of all of my special friends who've impacted my life so differently.

  2. I have a friend who is wonderful and lovely and all things that make me smile.. I am greatful each day for her.. I can't think of anyone I'd rather walk 60 miles with :)

  3. I also have a friend that loves me very much. She makes me laugh, she makes me smile, she always knows just what to say to relax me when I feel I'm falling apart. Her voice is so sweet and peaceful and gives me assurance when I doubt myself. She has taught me to enjoy life by slowing down and taking time to "smell the roses". When I am with her I feel whole because she is such a big part of my life.

    This special friend is very real, she's genuine and faithful. She will always be there to cry with me when I fall and to celebrate when I have victoires. I can always rely on her through thick and thin. She has no idea how many times she has lifted me up just by her loving smile. And This is why I love my FRIEND BETHANY!
