I missed 30day Drawing Challenge day 5
Which was yesterday, a pic of your best friend.
I was quite indecisive. So I made it a 3-way split.
Desiree (hamncheezr) is my oldest daughter. This girl, woman, is my clone. We think alike & move alike & talk alike. She is the heart of my heart & I can talk about anything (anything) with her. She’s insightful & wise and merciful.
Jay, the Red-bearded Wonder, and I have been talking almost a year. He was going through a horrendous divorce. I started talking to him because he needed an outlet, a voice of reason, some wisdom, someone who cared without any ulterior motive. Just because he’s him & needed it & deserved it. I had already asked for the divorce of my own and he’s been there for me through some tough times too. We’ve had to discover wounded places that need some special treatment but for the most part, we can say just about anything to each other. We never run out of intelligent conversation. And I’ve never in my entire life known a man who actually cared how I was doing or how I felt about something. I love him. I hope we can be be there for each other for a long, long time to come.
On Des’ suggestion, I’m putting up a pic of myself. She said, “Isn’t that kind of your new theme? To know yourself and treat yourself better and take care of yourself? To protect yourself and be true to who you are and stop squelching yourself? To be your own friend?” So here I am. I like the look of determination in this picture.
