Today is a very special friend's birthday so I want to dedicate this post to HIM and the friendship I cherish with him.
He and I have never met face to face but yet we feel we know each other. I pray and hope that one day we WILL meet. I will probably be the more capable one to venture the 900 miles some day.
We have talked on the telephone and spent thousands of hours on chat as well as emails.
We met on Pogo several years ago. We were flirtatious and continue to be, in honest fun. Mostly with our pet names, Handsome and Beautiful. We chatted and played games against each other. We gravitated to Yahoo Messenger and email.
He has become a friend I love and adore.
He has made me laugh when I wanted cry.
He has been an awesome confidante and supporter. He has been an advisor. He has been a true friend. He acted like a parent waiting for my email or chat to let him know I made it safely after meeting a potential new love interest.
He is always there for me. He has made me laugh when I wanted to cry.
We have accepted one another unconditionally. Our friendship has never had any stipulations.
We can always depend on each other to be honest. We never sugar coat anything. Sometimes, it was brutal for the other but we knew it was what we needed. We knew what we said to the other was not out of malice. And at the same time, we knew the other was there to comfort after the blows we encountered.
He and I have a special bond that we refused to let anything or anyone break.
When we had a love interest enter our lives, we made it known that our friendship was not up for negotiation. I know a few times I've had to tell the potential love interest at that time to not even try because they would lose. I can see when someone has not experienced a friendship like ours could be skeptical. It is one of those things you don't understand until you are in it.
I am blessed to have a wonderful, handsome, funny compassionate friend like Jeff.
Although we don't talk or email as much we know that we are here if we ever need the other.
I hope and pray his birthday is as special as he is because he deserves all the joy, love and happiness in the world!
Happy Birthday to My BFF, Jeff!
