Growing up I had a best girlfriend. That girlfriend is no longer in my life. Friends for a season and she was my best bestie for 18 years. When our friendship ended I realized that I didn't have a lot of female friends. I set out to change that and found that my mom was a wonderful friend.
And while I was a parent first while I was raising my daugher, now that she's an adult she is also one of my best friends. I hope I live long enough that my grandson and I will be friends one day.
Today my daughter and I made (well at least it was an attempt) Christmas wreaths for our doors. It wasn't as easy as pinterest made it look, but we enjoyed our time together. And tomorrow we're going shopping. And the week after Thanksgiving my mom and I are going to go shopping. I love to spend time with both of them.
I'm very Thankful they are both in my life and that I think of them both as friends.
