Blogging brings different things to different people. For some, it’s money. For a select few, fame. For others, a much appreciated audience.
For a lucky handful of us, blogging brings true friendship – friendship with someone who gives as much as they take, who listens patiently and advises supportively. Friendship with someone who pushes you to be better by just doing what they normally do – being awesome at life.
I’m blessed to have such a friendship with this crazy girl.
And today is her BIRTHDAY!
I know she thinks that being the mom of four small kids means that her place is usually behind the camera as the candles are being blown out, but I want to take today ask you to help me tell that girl that THIS is HER cake day. If you would, go wish her Happy 29th HERE or HERE or HERE!
I want to remind her that one day, those little kids that she spends so much time showering with affection and guidance – those kids whom she ferries to school and swimming lessons and doctor’s appointments – those kids will grow up and understand what an amazing mom they have, and her birthdays will be an occasion for them all to gather with their spouses and children to celebrate someone really special.
So Happy Birthday, “Getta!” Thanks for letting me rant, for loving my kid, and for being my lunch date on the weekends!
