Today is national best friend day, apparently, hashtag and all.
Best friend is such a weird title. I don’t really think it’s appropriate. I also think it is overused—even by me. There are people that you meet in different parts of your life that you love and need for a specific reason, or no reason at all. You may have known them for a long time, or suddenly find that both of you love velociraptors. Either way there is some segment(s) of you or your life that they fit into and you share with them and it is unique and special and you need them. And time isn’t a factor and neither is distance and you don’t have to talk every day. And they know you.
Recently I have been reassured of these things. I am so blessed, and so grateful to have a network of love and support. And just like Valentine’s Day; we don’t need a day for this. We can always take a moment to let someone know that they are valued and loved.
