I've got footage from Saturday night sliced up... so you can all see proof that I'm smarter than a 5th grader... but still not smarter than Auntie Jen...lol...

I was reading an article this morning in the Reader's Digest about celebrities and their best friends, and what those relationships mean to them.  Got me thinking about my relationship with Jen, my best friend, what we've been through, how we got here, and where we're going.

Auntie Jen gave me a Jade pendant on Saturday night, with all her love.  Hard to believe such an enormous gift could be contained in such a small token, but it has hung around my neck since, and I probably won't take it off for a while... it reminds me of her, her love and support for me over the years... and how much she believes in me, even when I don't believe in myself.

We've joked for years about how we share the same brain, and now we share a heart too...  She takes as much pride in my children and family as I do... as if they were her own.

I have saved her life, and she has saved mine.  We've had our ups and downs over the years, but the fact that we are still so close, even after separations, fills me with hope that there is indeed love in the world....

If only more people understood the meaning of friendship.

Friendship is a commitment to another, no lighter than any other commitment.

I have a candle holder in my bedroom that reads:

"Family is a circle of friends who love you" 

To me, friends are like family...lol... unfortunately some are more like distant cousins...

Perhaps Myspace should have a button called "add acquaintance" or something, because frankly.... most of the people out there don't get what "friend" really means.

To all the new friends on my list, welcome to my family of friends....

this Anterockstar SOS is for my best friend Jen... and all the light she brings to my life....(haha... like them shoes she's wearing in that video... wait.. I HAVE A PAIR LIKE THEM!!! *giggles)
