Today is my dear friend’s birthday. I wish you could meet her…you would want to be her friend. She is hilarious and makes me laugh out loud! She is supportive and a great listener. She is thoughtful, caring and hospitable. Her home actually looks like a Pottery Barn catalog and she also resembles Carrie Underwood- good thing she is so nice.:)
Tami and I live many hours from one another, which is a bummer. We don’t get to see each other very often, but when we do, we pick up right where we left off… laughing, sharing our hearts, and catching up on life in our respective homes. If I could be with her today, I would sing her a big happy birthday diva style (she has a lovely voice and sang in my wedding) and try to crack a joke (but she would come back with a funnier one) and try to do something great to surprise and bless her (although she always turns it around to be a bigger blessing back- that stinker).
We use to joke that we would be old ladies, still single, leaving in neighboring huts somewhere being missionaries (not that there is anything wrong with that, just not what we were hoping for). But, thankfully we are happily married to great guys, enjoy being mothers, and strive to be missionaries in our own farming communities. We laugh at the pig smell we take in at various times of the year, on opposite sides of the state.
Here’s to you Tami, dear friend. May your birthday be full of deep joy, special surprises, and lots of love- you are such a gift!
