I know it is no longer your birthday over there across the Pacific ocean, but here, in the country of your birth, it is still Nov 13th. So, here it is, your birthday blog.
I wanted to find a picture that represented our friendship, and would make you grin on your birthday. So what do you think? Pretty great, huh? This picture of the 4 of us pretty much says it all: we knew how to have fun together. We were practically siblings. We had the chicken pox together, rode to school together, lived with each other, fought with each other and have never stopped being a part of one another's lives. We have shared high highs and low lows. We always, always laugh. We will always be the very best of friends.
Remember: cruising around, listening to Cabbage Patch Kids tapes in our brown, portable, Fisher Price cassette players (I still know the song, do you?) how you called Aaron and I Love Boat when we were all in India and you were disgusted by us making eyes at each other, Chrissy Check, playing car and hall tag, sleeping in the tree fort, going to see Home Alone eons after the rest of the people in the USA and laughing our heads off, you feeding me ice chips while I was in labor with James, going to church at New Testament Baptist, roller skating in our bathing suits around the house on Clemmens ln., being in each other's weddings,and our detailed maps, made every Halloween, showing my Dad where to drive us so that we could hit every one in Fallbrook that we knew and fill up a pillowcase with candy? Remember all our good times?
There are more to be made. Happy Birthday, friend. I love you.
