A girl’s best friend



I’ve been blessed to have many wonderful friends in my life.  Some came into my life and are still here…some joined my life for just a short time and are gone, but that doesn’t lessen the impact they had on me. Some have been loving and supportive and some taught me valuable lessons that I can carry through life.  I’m also lucky enough to be able to say that as an adult, I have never had a friendship end so badly that I have negative thoughts about the person that outweigh the positive ones.

I am able to see the beauty in all my friendships and I’m thankful for that.

About 7 years ago I met Vivi.  She is my furry little soulmate. ‘They’ say diamonds are a girls best friend…but that is not the case for this girl.

Vivi has been my constant companion since the day we brought her home. She is a rescue…but she actually rescued me from one of the darkest times in my life.

She made my life better just by being with me. That is friendship at it’s core.

Vivi and I spend all day every day together. She is never out of sight.  If she is napping (and I must confess she is the worlds best napper) she is still within sight. If she can go with me when I leave the house she does. If not…well I’ll just say neither of us like it. 😉

I cannot imagine my life with out my little best friend. She made my world complete and her unconditional love and acceptance is something I hope I repay her daily. ❤

  1. Oh shoot! I forgot to put my post up. For me, the friendships that have been vital after my diagnosis has been found at my self help groups. Other people with multiple sclerosis understand when you explain the symptoms Or frustrations. I am so glad to have that group of friends!

    1. We joke that she is more like a cat sometimes. She is so chill. Rarely barks and it’s usually only one quick one and normally she just scares herself. 😉 We adopted her when she was 3 or 4. They were not sure because she was a stray. She had a VERY hard life before us. We are happy to be her safe spot now. She’s been a member of our family for over 7 years now and I still get that gooey feeling when I look at her. ❤

  2. Hello Nikki,
    What a lovely post about friendship, and your little rescue puppy is a perfect example. Rescue as a mutual gift indeed, from your words.
    I’m happy for you 💐
