In the 2 years or so M and I have 're-kindled' our friendship from college. Being on opposite sides of the country was really hard on me to begin with. I'd had the friends that were far away and it was really hard to keep in touch with them. We kept our calls to an average of 2 every 3 months, and still sent birthday cards and gifts, etc. After we got engaged I knew she would be in my bridal party, no questions asked, she's the one who gets me. When she came home for my wedding she asked me to be her MOH and I was thrilled (she broke off her engagement a few months later). Our conversations usually last 2hrs. Mostly we call while one of us is out running errands or at home cooking dinner, cleaning, etc. Our chats on the phone are every 2-3 weeks again, but we chat on google chat during the day as well. During our last conversation, she talked about the possibility of her moving here (or to the East Coast in general) next year. She also said that when the time comes that we do start a family, she's saving a week of vacation to come visit if she hasn't moved yet. We just talk, about whatever. There's no struggle, there's no awkwardness, there's no holding back.
The point of this post isn't so much about her, as much as it is about 'my person', the one who gets me, the one who's opinion I want, the one who is always there for me, the one who I can call no matter what, the one who cherishes the same things as me. My friends are great, but they can't all be 'my person'. M, she's my person. The older I get the more I realize how much I need that person to be there for me as well as KC.
Anyone else have a 'person'? Please tell me I'm not the only one who has 2hr phone conversations with a friend either. :-)
P.S. I should have started off by saying, I love my husband, he is wonderful and he is also 'my person', but girl friendships they're different.
Bonus points to whomever knows the TV show 'my person' is from?
