My closest, bestest friend and I don’t always see eye to eye. I bet at times she gets upset with me and I know I get upset with her. The biggest reason is because I have never had a friend, a real true friend that I could disagree with and still be happy to be their best friend. I haven’t had many “real friends” in my lifetime so even though this woman has been my closest friend for four years I still have my moments of getting testy about the friendship and wondering if she hates me after a simple disagreement in opinions.
This is my best friend, Dwan Perrin, aka MommaDJane who is a single mom of three kids. One of Dwan’s children have disabilities and she struggles with her own family unit, but do you realize I can call her balling my eyes out ready to scream my head off about my children, mainly my middle child who continues to go up and down with aggression and she still listens. She still cares. Even though she has her own family things going on, even though her day may have been rough as hell she still takes that time to listen to me and help calm me or straighten me out.
Dwan is one person I never question on trust. I know that she has my back and she knows I have hers. We don’t blog about our personal conversations. We trust one another 100% because that trust has been a given from day one. I met Dwan while working in direct sales as a consultant for one of her companies and she is the one who introduced me to the blogging world. We have grown together and we support each other in our growth. Never jealous. Never judging, always supportive and honest.
That is what friends are for;
- Ability to tell you how it is even if it’s in disagreement with what you feel or say.
- And above all, being there no matter what, any time of the day or night when all hell breaks loose and you simply just need a friend.
The only sad part about Dwan and I being friends is that she lives in Texas and I live in New Hampshire which means we can’t have big family BBQ’s together, our children haven’t met and we only get to see each other on a rare blog event or time we can afford to have her fly here or hopefully me fly there someday.
Do you have a best friend? A special person that has a certain place in your heart always and that you would run to for any happy time or negative time to vent or laugh?!
