Day 4: Your favorite photograph of your best friend.
My husband is most definitely my best friend. Not to go all Jerry McGuire on you but he most definitely completes me. In many ways we are total opposites which allow us to bring balance to one another. He’s a total extrovert where I am definitely an introvert so he helps draw me out of my shell and embrace new experiences whereas I help me to see the benefit of taking time to be quiet and still. I cannot believe that 10 years ago we were these young college kids running up our parents phone bill during Christmas break as we really got to know each other and talked about everything from how we liked our eggs cooked to how we understood the Trinity! We have definitely been through a lot together and God definitely gave me a husband that was everything I needed to get me through these hard times. I most definitely think that when God made John that He was thinking of me.
I’m going to cheat and have two pictures but following behind my amazing husband as a best friend is my mom. I’m really close to both my parents and would have no problem spilling my guts to either of them (and have done so many times over the years). I wrote before about the trip my dad and I took to the Coca-Cola 600 last year and how much it meant to spend time one-on-one just the two of us. I share the same bond with my mom. Even as a teenager, I always felt extremely comfortable talking with my mom. Our bond has gotten even stronger now that I’m married and a mother myself. Even though there are things we don’t see eye-to-eye on necessarily, there is still that respect for one another. We talk almost daily. Whenever they come to town to visit, its common for us to go shopping together and while we both really enjoy shopping, it is more of a time to just be together and catch up. I cherish our relationship so much and hope and pray that one day Abby and I can have the same relationship that I have with my mother.
