I have a bestest best friend, ever. This friend makes me laugh when I'm sad, hugs me when I cry, understands my deepest pain, is always there to help with whatever I need, makes me smile all of the time, understands my quirks and has many of the same, and the list goes on and on...
It's kind of funny how it all worked out. I saw this friend when they worked at a coffee shop, and we were just acquaintances, having a lot of mutual friends, but never connecting.
Then one day, we became friends on Facebook! You know how when you meet someone, and you think "This person is gonna be my best friend, I can just tell?" That's how this was, we started talking, and never stopped.
We starting having lunch together, going to the boys' soccer games together, they would clean my car and I would cook dinner. As the months passed, we grew closer and closer.
It's probably time I tell you that this friend is a man, obviously.
I quickly realized that I had feelings for him, and hoped he had the same for me.
The time finally came where became "official." I not only had my best friend, but I was dating him! Through this time, we built a relationship not only together, but as a family with the boys and God. They love him, and he loves them. It takes an amazing person to choose to love someones children.
We started doing family things together; the orchard, aquariums, watching movies, playing soccer, etc. It was nice to have that again; for the boys, for me.
And for him.
Then I realized, I love him.
But does he love me? I'm not going to tell him first!
Then last Monday, my best friend told me something. He said "I love you."
Then he asked me something. He asked, "Will you marry me?"
And I said "Yes!"
