Missing a Piece of the Puzzle {1 Word Challenge}

Best Friends for 18 years

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, because it would be too painful to watch you get hurt. 

That is exactly what these girls (pictured above) are to me. They truly are my BEST FRIENDS, the missing pieces to my puzzle of Friendship. We have been Best Friends since we were 14 years old. Almost eighteen years later and here we are - still best friends! We may not see each other very often, but we still consider ourselves besties! These girls are the sisters I never had (I have four brothers)...we have been there for each other through the good, the bad and the ugly. We have supported each other through losing loved ones, separation, break-ups, childbirth, becoming a mother, losing a mother...the list goes on. These girls are amazing! And I am so fortunate to have them in my life and call them my best friends! 

My  Our friend Kerry (pictured left) lives in London and is actually heading home tomorrow (*sad face*), however while she has been here (in New Zealand), we made sure we had plenty of catch ups, took lots of photos and reminiscing the good old days (as you do). Kerry has been away from home (New Zealand) for almost ten years, and the last time we saw her was in 2012. Seeing her again this Summer felt like she never even left. She is still the same bubbly girl that we all know and love! 

Earlier this week we had a BBQ & get together at Emma's place...Great company, talking about houses, businesses, work & children...It's funny how things change - eighteen years ago we would have been gossiping about 'who had a crush on who', the First XI Rugby team (te he he) and maybe organising a girly sleepover. 
Even though her visit was short and sweet, we have really enjoyed having Kerry home and filling that missing piece of the puzzle. 
Miss you lots, love ya more!

  1. Friends really re irreplaceable! Glad you have such great ones in your life!

  2. Unfortunately, I have had to replace some friends, Lisa. People who I thought were friends, but turned out not to be. I have gained new best friends over the years too. Friendships come and go...they either grow with you or they don't. :)
