Daily Prompt: Something So Strong

My best friend ever is Linda Watford. We have been friends for over 13 years. We have cried together, laughed together and been mad at each other from time to time, as all best friends can do, but we have always made up. We met when I met my husband to be, John. He was living with her, her boyfriend and her children. We just started talking when ever I came over to see John. It seems kind of funny now…because I can’t remember a time when we just didn’t talk or it seemed as if she was ever a stranger. But, then that is Linda. She is a spitfire. A person with a genuine spirit and a drive to complete what she starts. From going to nursing school and finishing that to becoming a fledgling novelist. She has a can do attitude and I have always loved her for that. Even when she was down, she was never down for long. She came back up fighting. What keeps our friendship going after all these years? Understanding and accepting each other just as we are. Knowing that we will always be there for each other if we can. No matter what. She knows that she can show up on my doorstep and need anything I will do my best to get it for her. And I know if I needed help she would do what she could to help me. And we make each other laugh. Laughter always helps. She is funny as heck. Love ya Linda Lou!!
