WARNING!!! Disclaimer Ahead!

I would just like to say now that when I use the term "Best Friend" I am not using it loosely. Nor am I saying that any "Best Friend" is better than any other "Best Friend". I just happen to be one of those lucky people that has been blessed to have more than one "Best Friend". I have some I see more often that others. I have some I talk to more often than others. But I hold each and every one of them very, very, very close to my heart!

Now that I have that out of the way I would love to share another one of my Best Friends with you. (And no this is not out of guilt Misty, I was just waiting for the right time!) That's right, it's Misty. I have known her since I was eight, hmmm, that's about 18 years now. She is a friend that no matter how much time we spend apart, we always pick right back up where we left off. She is also the friend who doesn't outcast me because I'm so bad at picking up the phone or coming over to visit even though she's been back in town for years now. BAD ME!!!!! She is such a good friend that she even named her son after my son, Tyler. Just kidding, but they are both named Tyler and I think it's great that me and my Best Friend have sons with the same name. If the kid is a Tyler, he's a Tyler, you just can't fight that. It'll make calling the boys back to where ever we are together pretty easy, it's actually quite convenient.

One of the reasons I love Misty so much is she's not afraid to run around and sweat with me. She's up for anything, she'll go play behind a boat, go hiking(not that we've done that in a while, a long while), and then there are sports. Misty is always up for some friendly, or not so friendly :) competition. I can always count on her for that. She is too much fun! She is on the indoor soccer team that I play on and last night we had a great time. We lost but we had a great time! I scored my first real goal ever! Not like the last one that counted for the other team. I legitimately scored. There were defenders and a goalie and the point went up on the scoreboard and everything! And there was Misty, ready to give me a high five and a "good job Cole"! I was so glad right then that I wasn't around a bunch of people I didn't know. Misty also scored last night, we were both down by the goal and she knocked one in. Now, neither of our goals were lasers or power shots, but they went in and on the board that is all that matters. I love that we have something like that we can share. Misty grew up playing soccer and I have to admit that I'm jealous of how she just knows what to do. She did earn it with all those years of practice and I hope someday I can be there, I'm just not there yet. Maybe she has a few tricks she can teach me.

So , I love playing soccer with her, but I also love just sitting down and talking with her. We can talk for hours about nothing and everything. I can say anything and while it my be shocking, she is never judging of me and always loving. She is always there and that is a comfort in itself. I know that I can call her out of the blue and she would know if something were wrong with me just by talking to me. I love how she is the daughter my dad always wanted. When I got my first speeding ticket shortly after getting my licence, I called her. I asked her if she would call my dad and tell him. I knew that if she told him he wouldn't get mad at her and he would have time to simmer down until I got home. She called. It was great. That is what Best Friends are for! To help you out when you really need it. And in high school, I could always count on my parents letting me go and do something if they knew Misty was going to be there.

Hey Misty, I'm pretty sure my Dad still owes you that trip to Disneyland. We should really make him pay up!!! I'm pretty sure he would still pay to take you there too :) He's got a real soft spot in his heart for you! We all do. I love you Misty!

As Weezer says in My Best Friend

When everything is wrong I'll come talk to you
You make things alright when I'm feeling blue
You are such a blessing and I wont be messing
With the one thing that brings light to all of my darkness

You are my best friend And I love you, and I love you
Yes I do There is no other one that can take your place
I feel happy inside when I see your face I hope you believe me
Because I speak sincerely
And I mean it when I tell you I need you

You are my best friend
And I love you, and I love you
Yes I do I'm here right beside you I will never leave you
And I feel the pain you feel when you start crying

You are my best friend And I love you, and I love you
Yes I do
You are my best friend And I love you, and I love you
Yes I do Yes I do...Yes I do

(That's the song that I was playing last night)

What a sweet post about your friend. She sounds like a great woman. Tiffany is this kind of friend for me. We go way back and I love her for so many reasons. And I am pretty sure she smoothed things over with my Dad and I a time or two as well.
