My best friend

It surprises me how well my best friend knows me. She called me one day, I answered, and just from my greeting she knew I was depressed. I said nothing about it, I was even making an effort to sound "normal", but she knew.

My best friend knows that sometimes things I say come out wrong. 
Best Friend: Please excuse the mess in my house, I haven't had a chance to clean.
Me: Oh don't worry about it, I'm used to it.

To any outsider, that would sound like I'm used to her house being a total mess and that it doesn't matter anymore. But in truth, I meant that I know she's busy and tired and hasn't had a second to herself and on her day off, she just wants to relax.
NOT that I think she's a slob.

My best friend knows that when I'm down, all she has to do is leave a Chuck Norris joke on my Facebook wall, and it will be sure to make me giggle.

My best friend knows I would marry Sean Connery in another life and I think his accent is divine. 
And that this poster cracks me up every time.

My best friend knows me better then I know myself sometimes.

My best friend says things like "Ruth, your Marrs is showing". Referring to my tendency to say the wrong thing.

I don't know where I would be without her. 
She's the one that introduced me to my husband.

My best friend is my sister and I love her. I'm so thankful our lives intersected 11 years ago.
I just wanted to make sure she knows I appreciate everything she's done for me and I know we will be friends for a very long time. <3
