Why I'm thankful for my best friends

It's a classic Sex and the City line where Charlotte turns to her three best friends and explains that 'they can be each other's  soulmates' and men can be nice guys that pass on through.

Now, I'm not suggesting that this is only true, as I love my husband so much, he is also one of my best friends. But I believe that after ten years of friendship - of high, hysterical times and low, tragic times - of relationships gained and lost - that my best friends are also my soulmates.


We were thrown together through university, by nothing more than fate and sheer luck. I know of so many people who have been to university and then lost touch with their friends, but since we graduated we've shared some of the best years of our lives and we continue to pass through each year with a new marriage, baby or new travel adventure together. 


We may now live across the UK and in the US, but we always try our best to make time to see each other. Whether it's every other month or once a year, the feeling that I get when I see them is nothing I can even begin to describe other than sheer joy.


You may be reading this and thinking, 'what the hell is she talking about' or you may be reading this and thinking 'yes, I know what she means'. 


But after spending another amazing day together, after not seeing each other for months, it felt like no time had passed at all. We were the same group of girls, laughing, shopping, eating great food and just enjoying each other's company. 


My best friends or soulmates truly bring out the best in me and make me a better person - for that I am eternally thankful.
