  1. Oh this makes me miss my BFF! What a great story Renee! Thanks for reminding me that it is always worth the risk to be real. Either you ‘lose’ a so called friend, or you gain a soul sister for life.

  2. The magic of a close friendship is a beautiful thing. And the timing of this post is incredible. Just last night, a friend (a new friend of only a few months) came over, after telling me she needed to talk, and spilled her heart. I feel so privileged that she trusts me enough to share such intimate and painful details of her life. And I feel blessed that God has placed her in my life.

  3. @Stacey – Thanks for sharing. I’m so glad I reminded you of your BFF and being real 🙂

    @Nickie – I’m so glad to hear. What a blessing and isn’t it AMAZING when we can be there for our bff’s???

  4. Oh, sweetie, I’m so sorry about your other two “friends.” Things like this puzzle me. I cannot imagine a friend doing this, I guess, because I wouldn’t. What a blessing to have a BFF like Amy! 😀

  5. Great post- helps me to remember the community we are so designed for and importance of our very best girlfriends and their places in our lives. Sometimes we have to sift through a few til we get to the ones that “stick closer than a brother” (sister?) but the bonds we make with those we share our heart with are forever etched in our souls. Aren’t BFF’s just wonderful?

  6. Community and sharing is what we were designed for. Thank you for reminder to be real is healing and best. I use to be a lot like your friend and NOT share until I was overwhelmed. Now I share pretty easily with trusted people.

  7. Renee, wow, Amy is a blessed girl indeed to have you for a BFF. I’ve got friends like you–the “stick by you no matter what” kind–and they make all the difference. Your post made me want to hug them right now!! Thanks for sharing this beautiful story and for reminding us what is really means to have and BE a true friend.

  8. I have a BFF like this. I can talk to her about anything. Same with her. We know our hearts and if we need to share something, we know that the trust is there 100%. So thankful for God’s provision in this area of our lives!

  9. @Lynn – Thanks for your encouraging words. I am blessed to have a BFF like Amy. I’m giving you a [[[{[[[[[HUG]]]}}}}} back 🙂

    @ Beth – Community is right! Thanks for sharing and yes, BFF’s are wonderful!!!

    @Kristen – Thanks for your encouragement and you’re welcome 🙂

    @Katie – You’re welcome! I’m so glad you’re learning to share and trust others easily. This is the key to great relationships (not to mention good communication as well)!”

    @Holley – Thanks so much for allowing me the pleasure to share. I do have to give credit to my BFF Christy Polek for taking the pictures with me at the beach. I used them in this piece because they fit so perfectly.

    @Mimi – I’m so glad you do!

    @Mary – You’re very welcome. And thanks for the encouragement…
