So today, June 8th, has been declared National Best Friends Day or just another strange, fun, unique reason to celebrate. A day to join National Ferret Day, National Beer Day and National Picnic Day, but it’s also a day when we can tell a friend or maybe more than one friend that we appreciate their friendship.
As defined by Urban Dictionary: Best Friends are very special people in your life. They are the first people you think about when you make plans. They are the first people you go to when you need someone to talk to. You will phone them up just to talk about nothing, or the most important things in your life. When you’re sad they will try their hardest to cheer you up. They give the best hugs in the world! They are the shoulder to cry on, because you know that they truly care about you. In most cases they would take a bullet for you, coz it would be too painful to watch you get hurt.
“Throughout life you meet one person who is unlike any other. You could talk to that person for hours and never get bored, you could tell them things and they won’t judge you. This is your soulmate, your best friend. Don’t ever let them go.” ~Unknown (Certainly this is how I knew I’d met my best friend since only months after we met, John and I could talk for hours.)
“My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.” ~Henry Ford”
I like you because you join in on my weirdness.” ~Unknown
“Best friends are people you can do anything with and nothing with and still have the best time.” ~Unknown
And, they’re even there for you when you throw out your back. 😉
The goal of this special day, to celebrate National Best Friends Day by letting your best friends know how much they mean to you!
To John, my best friend of forty years, happy National Best Friends Day.
