When Coworkers Become Friends

Yesterday was just one of those days. Bad day at work left me frustrated and emotional which lead me to really miss my mom. I was having a hard time focusing and getting myself to just stop crying. It was a day where all I wanted was a hug from the one person that I cannot get a hug from.

I am just so grateful for the coworkers turned friends that I have made here in Louisiana. Without them I don't think I would have survived.

First there's Amber who I had a total meltdown at her desk and she helped by distracting me and telling me one of her stupid stories to make me laugh so that I would not be focusing on everything else that was going on.

And there's Alberta, who happened to see an update I put on Facebook even though it was not a time she normally checked her phone. She helped me pull myself back together when I was falling apart and gave me a shoulder to cry on She has always been a person I talk to about the most personal things and I know I can count on her to help me in the toughest of situations. She is someone that I admire and definitely look up to.

Then there is Laurie. She is just the sweetest person and truly cares about everything about me. She has gone through a lot of the same things I am going through since she knows what it feels like to lose a parent. I know I can come to her and fully trust that she will help to cheer me up. She is an all around motherly figure that I just adore. She even called Kristen and I her daughters that she never had. She is just too sweet for words and I always look forward to our chats.

And last, but not least there is Kristen. I don't even think this girl realizes how much she has helped me in the last year and a half. She quickly became a great friend when I moved here and I will forever be grateful for her. Moving to a new place is hard and I assumed that I would spend most of my time by myself. Having such a great friend at work is something I never thought I would find. She keeps me 100% sane though out my work day. I can talk to her about anything and I tell her everything. If something happens in my life she knows about it. Even something super small. Because when you see someone at least five days a week, its hard not to tell them everything. I have learned so much from her, more than she probably knows. I even told Richard the other day that I am scared to move away from this place because of the fact that I have met such an amazing friend and it scares me to see that change. Even though I am hoping it will not.

When I was having one of the worst days possible, Kristen told me that after work we needed to have a pre-dinner snack at sweet frog (our favorite fro-yo place) because every bad day just needs some ice cream.


Friends like these are hard to find and I am so grateful to have found some amazing girls that can make my tough days better.
