My best friend Cindy


Today is kind of hard for me as tomorrow will be very hard. My best Friend Cindy is getting married and I wont be there. This is her second marriage. She doesn't want a big to do.....and that is okay because it's just like her. She wont let anyone focus on her that day.

Cindy and I met at an insurance office we worked at together. We talked everyday....and instantly clicked. Not long after this I moved 600 miles away and thought I would never see her again. Well, that was wrong....we go back and forth to visit quite often......at least every year..sometimes twice and believe it or not Scott has just gotten used to the fact that I'm going to talk to her everyday....no matter the cost. She is my best friend....knows ALL of my secrets....bad and good. And never judges me. She may yell at me....or tell me I'm in the wrong....but she loves me and I love her.

So you can only imagine the hurt I have that I cant be there tomorrow. Her wedding as everything else in her life was spur of the moment and well I can't do spur of the moment. I wish I could...but cant. She of course said I don't want you here...its okay.....I know it's so last minute...I of course would probably drive her insane if I was there. She is a simple kind of gal...and so beautiful. Cindy is kind, and loving and would do anything for you. She is calm, and always listens......she is patient and sweet. Who knows why she deals with me all the time.

No matter where we go in life she will always be my best friend. She will always be there. She will always know me inside and out. You see friends....Cindy is a women who never thinks of herself. Always of others.....

SO tomorrow I will get up and take Madison to play practice and then to a soccer game. And I will have Cindy on my mind all day ...wishing I was there....praying it all works out. But most of all wishing I was beside her on her special day.....

My toast to you sweet dear friends is

ALWAYS REMEMBER THIS DAY AND HOW YOU FEEL RIGHT NOW.......AND LET THAT FEELING GUIDE YOU THROUGHOUT YOUR LIFE TOGETHER. I WISH YOU HAPPINESS AND LOTS OF RAINBOWS.
I will be with you in your heart.....

I can just feel how much you wish you could be there, Jen. But it sounds like you two have the kind of friendship where she knows you'll be with her in spirit. I hope it's a beautiful day for her and that the two of you see other again really soon.

Sounds like you have an amazing friend and I'm sure it's heartbreaking not to be there, but I know you'll be thinking of her and keeping her in your heart :)

Hey Jen, I know exactly how you feel. My best friend got married in Hawaii last year and I couldn't go. It broke my heart. Seeing all the beautiful pictures did help though.

Hang in there,
Laura

Maybe you could video a message for her and her new husband and overnight it to her. I know it is not the same thing as being there, but it may help just a bit.
I would feel the same way if my best friend were getting married and I couldn't be there. I am sure though, she knows that if you could be there, you would. That is what matters.

Oh, I'm sorry you can't be there for your friends wedding, but you will be there in spirit! I loved your toast to Cindy.

Beautiful post. Cindy is lucky to have you as her best friend too. Sorry to hear you can't be with her, but it's obvious you are with her in spirit. God Bless your friend and her new marriage.

Oh my goodness, that is one of the sweetest things I have ever read! Sounds to me like she has a great friend in YOU too. =) I hope her day is special, and wish her the best in her marriage.

Oh, I wish you could be there with your friend......A real friend is a treasure indeed.

I wrote a posting about my friend Jackie from lst grade recently. Her first husband died and five years later she remarried and is so happy.

Ah, I bet that is hard for you. She sounds like a wonderful friend. All of my best friends are far away too, and it makes me sad and I miss them often.

I know you missed being there. I have two such best friends...they love me uncondtionally. Ironically, they both have the same first name...Cherie.

Hope you're having a good weekend!
