My Friend for Life - He Gave Me Life

My Friend for Life - He Gave Me Life

I met him the first day of eighth grade. I had just transferred schools and my friend had told me that she didn't like that boy.


He was a know-it-all and she didn't like him.

I guess I had the choice to join with my friend and ignore this boy, but that's never really been my style. I got to know him that year and though we weren't best friends, we were friends. Over the years, we had classes together and band together. Through all the late band rehearsals and lunch breaks and field trips and late night phone calls, we got to know each other better and better.

He had a great sense of humor and we often played off each other. It was sometime my senior year that I noticed that that friendship had changed into something more. An attraction.

I was so incredibly nervous when I realized how much I liked him.

It was weird taking such a close friendship to a new level. We began dating and I really think we started off with such a solid foundation because we were friends. After 5 years of dating we were married and now after 8 years of marriage and a sweet 4 year old, we're closer than ever.

Not long after our daughter was born, I had post partum depression. I didn't realize how bad it had gotten until one day I found myself wishing I wasn't alive. My husband sat me down and made me tell him what was going on with me. He was so loving and did such a great job with our daughter while I recovered. Truly, he saved my life.

My Friend for Life - He Gave Me Life

Passion comes and goes in relationships, that's only natural. But our friendship is eternal. Through the birth of our daughter, the death of grandparents, a cross-country move, it has all been bearable because my best friend was by my side. The hours we've spent talking and sharing ideas, the encouragement and support I have, I wouldn't trade for anything in the world. He's my best friend, 'til death do us part.
