I am ever so thankful to have this wonderful woman in my life. She has been an absolute blessing and keeps me striving to be a better woman everyday so that I can be a better friend to her. We have been through some things that have brought us closer even when I thought that they may have driven us apart. She is one of the most loyal, generous, caring, considerate, bluntly honest, dependable, genuine, loving, fantastic hair and nail having, perfume having, underwaear obsessed, neat, organized, OCD having, great stor telling, great paper writing, helpful, whip driving, shit talking, joke telling, conference call having, supportive, hilarious, MBA having, loafer wearing - well tennis shoe wearing, great toe week having, intelligent, lovable (and please believe that the list could go on and on) person. She is one of the most important people in my life.
I am so blessed to have a person that is for me when some are against me. To have person that will pull me to the side and tell me I am wrong when I swear that I am right. Thankful to have a person that will pat me on my head when I can’t stop crying and will always be there whenever I need her. She will listen and talk to me how I am feeling and allows me to be there for her even when it's too much for her to handle. She is the friend that will always ask if you are busy first then say do you have a minute. She is the friend that goes for it and says I have a confession. She is the "we are in this together and I love you regardless" type of friend.
My bestie is the kind of woman that understands your past, embraces your future with you and makes plans to believe in you when you almost don’t believe in yourself. That is my best friend. A woman that is sometimes better to other people than she is herself. She is selfless and triumphant and eloquent. She believes in the bond of friendship and doesn’t have all the unnecessary. If you are her friend and truly her friend - she will do whatever she can for you. She is so wonderful and sometimes I wonder if she knows how wonderful she is. I try my best to remind her as much as possible so that is why this day is so special.
This is a day that it is all about her and no one else. This is the day she graced the world with her presence and God saw that it was so. Most of all it is a day to show how much I appreciate her and love her. On this day, your birthday, I say HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRIEND and THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING MY FRIEND. You are inspiring even when you don’t know it and always good for a laugh when least expected with a sidebar. Great friends are truly hard to find, wonderful to have and a blessing to keep. Life has truly been a party with you in it. So this day is all about you and middle finger to the ones that don’t know any better. Enjoy your day!!! I love you girly!!!
