You Matter Sunday
We bought lake trailers next door to each other. Learned to golf together (although she is now MUCH better than I am).
We cried and hugged through the deaths of parents and the birth of grandkids. I can't imagine her not in my life.
She is one of the strongest women I know and also one of the best friends. She taught me how to stand up for myself. She got me to go out and have fun and until this year, always rode the roller coaster with me.
She buys me presents she keeps for herself. Or gives them to me early so she doesn't keep them for herself. She always has chocolate stash that she willing shares if I need it.
She keeps treats for the dogs in the area, although her family says she doesn't like dogs.
She shares my love of Bobby Sherman, the Osmands, the Jackson 5 and American Idol.
We know the same "lullabies" and can sing the words.
She cries easily and loves fiercely.
She's my friend and today is her birthday. We can't be together, but I want her to know how much I love and appreciate her. Today and always.
