20257_104259692933049_4049697_nToday is my best friend’s birthday. I thought it was appropriate to have my 100th post on this blog be dedicated to my dear friend.

Though he is much more than a friend to me, he is like my brother.

We met years ago on Male Survivor. Instantly we became friends. Have you ever met someone that from the get go you were the best of friends? Well that was Forrest and I. There was something that brought us together. I can remember early being drawn to him, like I had known him for years… though we had just met.

He has been there for me through many dark days and helped pull me back into the light. He has listened to me cry, listened to me rant. Our friendship means the world to me. I can’t imagine my life with him in it. Honestly I am not sure if I would be here today if it wasn’t for his friendship. I met Forrest at a very dark period in my life. I was kicked to the ground and unsure if I could ever get back up.

I had gave up on the world, gave up on myself. The world around me was dark, scary and painful. He helped show me there was light, kindness and love left in this world. He became the hope I so desperately needed.

He was someone I could count on, someone I could trust. He was there for me when I needed someone the most.

This summer we met for the first time, after years of talking on the phone and online. When my Mom was in the hospital fighting for her life, he had his sister drive him four hours just to be with me for a few hours. It was such a scary time for me and having him there meant the world to me. It was exactly what I needed. Having him there allowed me to regroup and gave me the strength I needed to make it through losing my Mama.

He has taught me the meaning and value of true friendship. He listens and gives me feedback when I need it. He is gentle, kind and loving. He has showed me that there are some truly wonderful people out there in this world.

He puts up with me when I am difficult and demanding, which is pretty frequently.  🙂 He loves and see me for who I am inside. He values me as a person. He sees the best in me, even when I struggle to do so.

There are few that I let into my inner circle. This circle includes my Mama, Sister, my nieces, nephew and Brother-in-law. They are my family and they mean the world to me. I would do anything for them. I would protect them with my life, as I would for my best friend Forrest. He is my family.

Forrest is good at taking care of others. He has a heart of gold. He is one of the strongest people I know.

I hope you know how special and beautiful you are. You deserve the world and I hope I am able to give to you what you’ve given to me. I am so honored and blessed to call you my best friend. I love you with all my heart brother!
