Terrie is a mother and her love of writing poetry, music, and quotes have led her back, to explore more of her creative side.

To Lesli

My dear, you are my bestie.

We met in high school, when we didn't know the rules.

Life has been a journey; together we get through.

Faith, Family, and Friends unite us.

Nothing can divide us.

Secrets we share, no one will know.

So, on with life, we go.

At times we travel different roads.

But always find our way home.

Lesli, you are my bestie.

You're my oars in life's ocean.

Calming all my emotion.

Thank you for your friendship.

I appreciate your kinship.

You're a blessing to my life.

Let there never be strife.

Sisters, by choice.

You always hear my voice.

Even if we haven't talked in awhile.

You always make me smile.

A cup of tea, or glass of wine.

You always have the time.

Or is it a bottle.

You never coddle.

Living and laughter.

From here ever after.

The best over all the rest.

Lesli, you are my bestie.

We Are Best Friends Forever

Lesli and Terrie, friends for 35 years.

A Day With my Friend

Painting Day With my Best Friend

What would a day be like without my best friend? The time we spend together is more precious than gold. The last time we were together, we went to a painting party. Who, knew an hour and a half would turn into four hours. But the time just flew by, and my picture is still not finished. We laughed, talked and painted away. Little did we know how great a day it would be. I met new ladies and made new friends. I wished we lived closer to each other. It was the best day I'd had in a long time. Talking and laughing over the phone just isn't the same. Even though, it's better than nothing. I made a pledge to my bestie that we will get together more often. I recommend you and your best friend do the same. What a great day my friend, what a great day!

Just like this painting, our friendship is unfinished. We all need a best friend. She's a sister, a friend, and a confidante. My personal shrink, without the bill. If I could write her a check for the love and support she has given me, I couldn't afford the cost of her cashing it. May everyone who makes a best friend, nurture and grow that friendship together, and always be there for each other. From my house to yours, I wish you love and happiness. May you have a best friend to experience life to it's fullest.

Best Friend

I'll never have another.

Best friends forever.

I Love You To The Moon And Back

This is dedicated to my best friend, Lesli. As most people know it's not always easy to tell people how you really feel. Since I express myself a lot through writing, I thought it would be a good way to tell her. I wanted her to know how much I appreciate her and our friendship, while she is still here. When I am able to share my feelings with her. This is also for all those who want to know how they too can find, or have a best friend and how they can be one too. I am very lucky to be able to say that I have a best friend forever. May you also find your best friend and cherish everyday you have with them.

Did You Know?

That humans need to have close friends or a best friend?

Reasons for having a best friend:

  1. It gives you someone to confide your troubles.
  2. You need someone other than a spouse to do activities.
  3. It Improves your mental health.
  4. You will have someone who tells you like it is, not always what you want to hear.
  5. You learn how to have a bond with someone other than your children or spouse.
  6. You can laugh and not worry about how stupid you sound. You know what I mean, that laugh that gets so out of control it sound's like a snort. LoL
  7. No matter how old you get or how weird you look, they love you anyway.
  8. Being around them or even talking on the phone, they make you smile and brighten your day.
  9. It gives you someone to lean on when you are feeling down. As a friend, you also do the same for them.
  10. They support your goals and encourage you to do your best.

How Can You Find a Best Friend?

I heard this question: How can I find my best friend?

That made my heart sad. How do you explain that a best friend isn't something you search for and find. When a friend comes along, and you nurture that friendship it grows. You both develop a bond, and usually, you have other parts of life in common. After a time, life goes on, and you can become best friends. Talking openly, being kind and understanding also helps people to become best friends. At the same time, you are honest with them. OK, I just realized it's like being married, but not living in the house. The saying, I would die for you comes to mind. Who would have ever thought I would have a best friend that I could even say that! Wow, I love that I truly have a best friend. You have to be a good friend to find and keep a good friend. You look for someone who supports your dreams and goals as much as you support theirs. With joy, an open heart and much love, I hope this article makes you think of your best friend. We all start as friends, it's understanding, kindness and caring along with honesty, which develops into love. After all this, you will know you have found your best friend. It won't matter if their male or female.

From my house to yours: May you always love and cherish the relationship you have with your best friend.(That results in becoming best friends.)

      More people should know how others feel, while they can still hear it. The world would be a better place. Thank you, my bestie.

      Beautiful poem and I completely agree with you that it is important to have a best friend other than your family. You are fortunate if you have one. It's good for the emotional health.

      Lovely picture of you two. Thanks for sharing this refreshing poem!
