We have a #StoriesOfStrength to share with Tylenol do you?

This year Extra Strength TYLENOL® is partnering with actress Andie McDowell and her daughter, actress and singer Rainey Qualley, to launch STORIES OF STRENGTH, a program that encourages people to share stories honoring someone who has been a source of strength in their lives. Andie had the opportunity to learn how her strength inspires her daughter, Rainey, to be strong for her up and coming career in music and is excited to share her personal story, as well.

Not only are they partnering with Andie McDowell, they also teamed up with this Crazy Mom to hear my #StoriesOfStrength. Tylenol has always been a steady friend between all my headaches and Lupus issues, but my biggest strength through the years has always been my Best Friend Ursula.

My Best friend keeps me strong #StoriesofStrength

Ursula and I meet in Germany, in Elementary School. We been best friends through thick and thin, all the different boyfriends and teenage issues and many other things, she has been there for me whether she was in Germany and I was in Florida or once she moved to Alabama and and was only a few hours away.

We chat often on the computer through Text messages but also have months that we don’t talk at all, but each of us knows that the other is there whenever needed. That is my rock, the best feeling in the world knowing that someone outside of my family is there to support me no matter what.

When I got married in Florida 8 years ago, my best friend traveled all the way from Alabama to be my Bridesmaid and be there for me on the most stressful day of my life. She never asked why and never said I may think about it, she showed up and ready to be my Bridesmaid and hang out with me the days leading up to the wedding as well as after. It was the best feeling knowing she cares and will travel every distance to be by my side. I would do the same for her if any way possible, no questions asked.

She was also the first person besides my husband who saw my first born shortly after he was born, he was a 2AM baby… and we still talk about it to this day, he is now almost 19 and it feels like just yesterday. Friend like this are hard to come by, I treasure her and will forever, she is my Rock and my Best Friend, totally gives me Strength when needed and I hope she feels the same about me and knows I would do the same for her. Just Love her!!!!!

I bet you have someone that is your Rock and you have #StoriesofStrenght to tell. We would love to hear it.

    My best friend and I have been friends for 25 years now. It is so nice to have a friend who has been there for you through everything. We live a few hours apart, and don’t see each other very often now, but when we get together, it’s like we’ve never been apart.
