National New Friends, Old Friends - May 19-25, 2019

I will not post a picture of my best friend. However, I will say that she has been my best friend for sixty years. We are both 64. We have had a few ups and downs. But very few downs. I consider her the sister that I never had. Friends are chosen members of our families. I do have other close friends. However, it really never has changed my opinion of my BEST friend. Someone that knows me better than even my husband does.
I read this and wanted to add that friends can even be beneficial for our health.
"Friends have a strong positive effect on your life. For example, research shows that having a bunch of good friends increases longevity even more than connecting with relatives and family. Deeply connecting with others actually reduces blood pressure and cholesterol levels."
If you have a best friend, be thankful. In my mind, life is much better with friends.
