Happy Birthday Friend!

I'm not going to say her name.  She knows who she is.

I'm not going to tell her age.  She knows that too.

We met years ago - by chance or fate - in an online chat.  No, I am also not going to tell you how many years ago.  Not relevant.  Let's just say, we were both a little younger than we are now.  But that one particular day I decided to check out that one particular chat was the start of a wonderful friendship.

Separated by miles and miles, we have only met face to face a few times.  Over the years we have drifted apart for periods of time.  But she was always tucked into the back of my heart.  And thanks to the miracle that is modern technology, we managed to find each other again.

She is funny.  She makes me laugh.  She makes me think.  She's wild.  She's a little bit crazy.  I like that about her.

But the best part of her is that she's REAL.  When you meet her - what you see is what you get.  She doesn't pretend to be anything she isn't.  She is who she is.  Period.  She is true and genuine.  She isn't going to tell you what she thinks you want to hear.  She tells it like she sees it.  And I love that about her.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRIEND!
