Gift of a Friend

**LONGGGG post…. I sorry ahead of time**

Part 2 of Strawberry Singh’s ‘Your Avatar’s Private Life Challenge. Topic: Blog about one of your Closest Friends in Second Life”

“Someone who knows when you’re lost and you’re scared
There through the highs and the lows
Someone to count on, someone who cares
Beside you wherever you’ll go

You’ll change inside when you realize

The world comes to life and everything’s right
From beginning to end when you have a friend by your side
That helps you to find the beauty you are
When you open your heart and believe in the gift of a friend”

The day I realized Cougar and I shared something more than a common interest in our choice of computer/internet games, was the day I received an express delivery box  from an address originating in….. (of course I’m not gonna say sheesh)… well, it was from over cross the fruited plain.

The kids were still little dudes, not yet hormonal, and we ‘tore’ into that Yankee Candle branded cardboard box as if it were Christmas. In the box, were carefully placed, tightly sealed mason jars (at least I think that’s what they were, correct me if I’m wrong ms fatty packs), filled with what looked like creamy soup of somethings.

See I had gotten very sick prior to this, and literally ‘bemoaned’ that fact, all over Second Life. Poor sis got the brunt of it. And so, she wanted me to shut up feel better, and went about making her famous moaners.

Yes you read that right. Moaners!! A concoction of creamy, lovely, warmy chicken soup with even creamier, fluffy and oh so yummy dumplings! SO good, it’ll either make you moooannnn, or make you slap yo’ momma! We heated what we could, ate and slurped, took our thank you pictures, and ever since then, my kids know Aunty Cougar as the lady who made us moaners! (I kid you not 😛 )

She is that kind of friend. The kind that sticks better than peanut butter on white bread on the roof of your mouth… The kind of friend that intuitively, instinctively knows, just KNOWS, somehow, some way, when you’re having a bad day.. and then will do her darn-est to help you get back on your feet.

The kind of friend that gives you kleenex before a single tear has been shed, even handing you her used wad. She’s never been afraid to straighten me up, never been afraid to tell me to ditch the patterns and aim for simplicity, and is always willing to let me bunk with her horses, when I’m homeless.

Even when she herself, was at her weakest and most vulnerable, Cougar became a strength to others, and to myself. When time reveals life’s toughest challenges, these are the kinds of friends that keep your soul in tact.

I love you my sister, my confidant, mentor, my very dear friend. Once upon a time, we danced the Uber, but now? Now we can fly!

Your friendship over the years is gift that keeps on giving, and I am amazed daily by your quiet grace and unfathomable patience ❤
