Happy Birthday!!!!

Last year I told you about someone who changed my life and I don't think there is too much I can add BUT once again it is her birthday:-) This birthday is special because it ends in a zero but I will let her share which one it is lol *I* can tell you she doesn't look her age at all because she has that complexion that people pay good money for with the smoothest skin...throw in the great hair and you want to hate her but you just can't because she is too sweet lol I am just so blessed to know her and I can't imagine where I would be if she wasn't in my life. She is that friend that can pull me out of the pit when I shut out the world...the friend that can fuss at me but do it with so much love that you can't get upset....the friend that can make me laugh no matter what is going on in my life....the friend that can make me smile just by entering a room. I have once again been blessed this year with her love and support and just her presence. She is my family and even though we aren't related biologically I believe God put her in my life to show me what family is supposed to be. She is the sister I have always wanted and always prayed for.... She is one of the first people I pray for when I wake up and one of the last I pray for when I go to bed. She is the one that I set aside a time for on Wednesday to pray for as she goes to change lives in her church because I believe in what she is doing. She gives SOOOOOOOOO much of herself and sacrifices so much of her time just to share Gods love. If it means getting up at 4:30am to sit at a hospital with a friend having surgery or sharing Jesus with a snot nosed little kid or just having someone in her home to share the holidays she makes EVERYONE feel special and loved. I honestly don't think I could have made it through some of the things I have had to go through without her... Going through a divorce and moving half way across the country were hard but were made bearable with friends like her to carry me to my Father's feet and pray with and for me. She already knows how I feel about her and I try to tell her at every opportunity how special she truly is but I wanted to share with you too...she is the most amazing Mother and I have learned some valuable lessons from her and my children can tell you what a difference it has made in their lives. I could go on and on and on and I usually do in email to her because I want her to know.... I guess I could sum up all of it by telling you the best gift she has given me was her unconditional love because in this world THAT is hard to come by... Merci I hope you never change and that your birthday is a great one and you can see how MUCH you are loved and cared for...I am just so proud of you! Today is the day to celebrate your birth and I plan on doing that and I will start by thanking God for sharing you with us because you are an angel on earth....you not only changed THIS family's life but you make the world a better place to live in...you are amazing and I love you Bazooka! With ALL of my heart...forever:-)
