Besides my DH, I have two BFFs. I have known both since high school (almost 20 years now, ouch). They both stood up for me at my wedding, have been there for me during my darkest times, and at the happiest times too. I have lived far away from them for a long time, but whenever I go home to visit we get together. A few weeks ago, I made a special trip without DH or DS to hang out with them and it was sooo much fun! One of my BFFs, we have been drifting apart a little due to life changes, he just got a new girlfriend and I am not the one he turns to anymore, which is totally cool. The other BFF just went through a big breakup and is working on changes in her life which has brought us much closer. Neither have kids or are married, but honestly that's a good thing for our relationships. The three of us have had our ups and downs, different points in our life when we were distant from one or the other, but at this point I know we will be friends when we are old and gray.
I have another very, very good friend that I met in grad school, so we have been friends for a few years. She has been in our lives since DS was born and if anything happened to DH and I, I would want her to raise DS. They have an incredible bond that is so precious to see and every time we visit each other I am thankful she came into my life and DS's life.
