In our lifetime, we are lucky if we have a Best Friend. A person who remains with us through the good times and the bad. They care for us when we are happy and they lift us up when we are in the valleys.

I have a Best Friend that has been my support for over 40 years. We first met during our doctoral program in early childhood and found that we had similar views of life, young children, and shared a mission.

We sweated through Statistics together, often repeating that, “together we have one good statically brain.” Professionally we have presented together, written books together, and made difficult decisions together.

My good news today is that I have a BF like Shirley Raines, that we are still supporting each other, and that we continue to work together on projects. My hope is that you have a BF that will laugh with you, cry when you do, and tell you that you are the best friend ever!

After reading this Good News Alert, reach out to your Best Friend and let them know how important they are to you! Old friends know you well and still like you.

Warm feelings,
