It's so good to hear you working your way through the darkness that had (temporarily) settled over your life. And it's so good, for me, to still be one of your two best friends! Speaking of which, here's what Anne Sexton once wrote about her friends:

"there is so much abundance / in the people I have... /all in their short lives / give to me repeatedly, / in the way the sea / places its many fingers on the shore, / again and again, / and they know me, / they help me unravel, / they listen with ears made of conch shells, / they speak back with the wine of the best region. / They are my staff. / They comfort me."

As, of course, you comfort them (and so many others) in return...
