We met in the 7th grade through a mutual friend. We cemented our friendship in history class shortly afterwords with a mock argument about the White Horse of Uffington.*

Through the years we remained friends, occasinally drifting in and out of intimacy as teenaged friendships sometimes do, but always she was there at the core.

After college we mostly lost touch, but never completely - mutual friends kept us connected within a few degrees of seperation. We did get married the same year, and started a family at approximately the same time, so fate made sure we always had something in common.

Since our children were born, our friendship has grown into adulthood, and I am extremely lucky to have her as my friend. She has always, always been there for me, we can talk about anything and everything, or nothing, and enjoy ourselves doing it. It's a friendship spanning, er, lots of years, and it is one of the greatest blessings of my life.

My best friend is a really amazing person; smart, witty, caring, and she deserves all the happines this world can bring.

Happy birthday, Kathryn. According to many Halmark cards, life begins now. I'm glad we'll be enjoying it together.

Long-term best friends are wonderful. I have one from high school who lives out in Washington state now, but we see each other as often as our busy lives and bank balances allow us. In fact, I get to go see her this coming spring, so I'm very happy about that.

Oh, and thanks for getting the Courtship of Eddie's Father theme stuck in my head! ;) Seriously, I loved that show. I always wanted the housekeeper and him to get together. I don't remember what happened in the end, but it made me see Bill Bixby as a father figure ever after.
