"May thy Birthdays be life's golden milestones"
Today was the birthday of one of my oldest friends. Let me rephrase that ~ she's not really my "oldest" friend, we've just been friends for a very LONG time. We've worked together, played together, laughed together, cried together, and have always been there for one another. She's that kind of friend.
Together we've watched our children grow up and start their own lives and we've watched our parent(s) become ill and pass away. She is always putting me up on a pedestal and always there with a shoulder when I'm down for whatever reasons life has brought me. She's that kind of friend.
She's old enough to be my mother, young enough at heart to keep me totally entertained. Crazy enough to make me laugh and wise enough to guide me and teach me. She's that kind of friend.
We can tell each other anything and everything like..."Jodie, my birthday is coming up and I need some new earrings. Can you make me some more?" I just smiled and said "Sure...anything for you, friend." Then frantically last night (yes, I do tend to procrastinate & I work better under pressure ;) I whip up these earrings and cards and think...how will I wrap these for my special friend? Hmmm...they are too beautiful to wrap, how about I just punch a hole and tie them together for a different kind of tag book. If you've been visiting me here often, somehow I'm sure you know by now that I like to do things a little differently.
I have to say...she loved it :)
She's that kind of friend that just "gets me".
I hope God has blessed you with a friend like that in your life. I am fortunate since He has blessed me with many...including you!
