But today, I am paying tribute to one of the most amazing women I have ever met in my life...My BFF!
I met Rayemanette back in 1996 through a mutual friend at Marie Callenders. The moment I saw her, she gave me a big hug and I knew that she was my "female" soul mate. She is a hawaiian girl and we always joke that we were twins in the Pre-Existence who were separated at birth...she is my hawaiian half and I am her haole half! We totally understand each other and it was evident from the first meeting...
Someone once said, "I can trust my friends. They force me to examine and encourage me to grow" ~Unknown. That's how true friends should be. They have NO ulterior motives. They are pure in their feelings and they love unconditionally. They hold up the mirrors that show us who we are and let us see who we can become. They think you're beautiful even when you are at your ugliest...That to me is a Real friend.
Because of the nature of her job (flight attendant) and my busy schedule, we will go through periods where we are unable to reach each other for days...that's OK. As much as I love to talk to her, I know that our friendship is strong. "Silences make the real conversations between friends. Not the saying but the never needing to say is what counts. ~Margaret Lee Runbeck
I am so thankful for girlfriends...all of my girlfriends, including many of you whom I have never personally met. You all edify my life (or I wouldn't waste my time reading your blogs!) We are all here to share and love and build and grow. How blessed is my life because you all are now in my world!
