Thankful Thursday- Friendship

Coming up to each Thursday I often wonder what will my Thankful post be about this time. I knew right from the get go this Thursday's would be about my best friend Kathy.
Kathy and I met about 12 years ago and we've been best friends ever since. It was one of those friendships that just clicked. I have never in my life had a friendship like ours.
She thinks I'm funny, so that means she gets my sense of humor, and that's always nice. And she is very capable of making me laugh as well.

We laugh A LOT! I usually end up in tears and she ends up grabbing the video camera lol.

It's to the point now that I consider her more like family then just a friend.

She's my Tower of Terror riding buddy. I think our record is 11 times now.

She is a most excellent "Aunt" to my kids and she loves them like they are her own. To prove that go check out the little party she threw for my daughter's birthday here. She is always willing to kid sit so my hubby and I can go out on a date every now and again.
She has inspired me to do things that I probably never would have done. She taught me how to sew and crochet and since then I've sewn 4 quilts, 2 dresses, and about 5 purses and crocheted one afghan and 2 scarves. Something I probably never would have done had I not met her.

We are both health conscious, we both LOVE chocolate, we both adore our husbands, we both love the Lord, we both love roller coasters, we both don't know what we'd do without each other. I don't think I could ever find a better best friend then Kathy.

She bought me this Willow Tree figurine for Christmas one year and the name of it is
"Sisters at heart". And that is so true.

I could go on and on about funny stories we have but I figured I'd better keep it short.
So on this Thursday I am ever so thankful for my most excellent best friend in all the world.
I love you my sister!
Blessings my friends.

    I had to be silly because I am typing this through tears. You know you are my bestest friend in the whole world and I would be a complete mess without you. How could I go to the gym without my laughing exercises? How could I have Christmas dinner without you there to compliment my cooking? How could I make cookies without you to share them with? I love you my friend - YOU are a blessing to me. :)
