Like Two Peas….

I have a best friend.

Her and I are nothing alike….like night and day.

I often wonder why we are such good friends… we have almost nothing in common.

She’s a farm girl, I like creature comforts.

Her idea of the perfect holiday is camping on the beach at Fraser Island with 40 of her closest relatives, my perfect holiday is a 5 star luxury hotel in the Whitsunday Islands, adjoining my private beach, with not another living soul in sight.

She’s a “pets outside” person, I’m a pets sleep in my bed person.

She likes Christian Rock, I like Punk Rock.

I wouldn’t be caught dead without hair and make-up done, I don’t think I have ever seen any make-up on her.

Even the things we do have in common, like photography, we approach completely differently. I like it bold and bright, she likes it dark and muted.

So why are we such great friends?

Because despite our many differences we have one or two things in common.

We love to laugh.  We have such a great time together. We can be silly and be completely ourselves without ever having to fear judgement.

We care about each other.  There isn’t anything we would do to help the other in need.

And we love life…. as much as we love each other’s friendship.

And that is how is should be.
