You are one of the lucky ones .. as I was for many years .. you have both .. make the most of them and try to see their point of view -where they're coming from before dismissing anything they might say. .. If you really feel they are your best friends you are REALLY lucky ;) .. most people don't realise this is actually the case until it's too late!! :eek: xx
