Today is my bestest friends birthday! I won't tell you how old she is, but she's older than me. Only by six months, but not the point, she's still older than me. Anyway. She is the one who got me started with this whole blogging thing and I thank her for it. I'm having a blast.

I'm going to get mushy for a minute and then I'll chill out. I met Becky 22 years ago at church. Yes church. We immediately clicked and have been friends ever since. We spent a lot of time getting in trouble when we were younger, but I think we have grown up to be pretty good people. Sometimes our challenges and hardships were overwhelming, but we have walked through most of them together. There were a few years that we lost touch when she moved out of state, but we have cruised through life together for the last 12 years . I've watched her grow up so much and become such a incredible woman. Though life has not been easy by any means, she still gets up every day, puts one foot in front of the other and marches through life like a true soldier. I cannot express the love that I feel for her and can't imagine life without her. I am fortunate enough to have her working in my office now, 1 floor above me and can go visit or just say HI anytime I want. She loves my children as her own and she tolerates my hubby. HA! I know that she would take a bullet for me and I would do the same for her. She is the only kind of friend to have and I'm glad she's mine.

So, please give Becky some birthday love today. She thinks it's just another day. I beg to differ. Today I celebrate your birth and that you have survived yet another year on your incredible journey called life. Here's to many more years of love, joy, health and frienship. I love you with all my heart!!!!
