Today is the birthday of a very special friend!
It often surprises me to remember that we have only known each other for a little over two years because it feels as though I have known her my whole life. She is a precious gift from God! He placed her in my life during some of the most trying times I have ever experienced.
Many of you know that she lived with us last summer during my sister's cancer treatments. For this reason alone I cannot imagine life without her! She was a friend that encouraged me during those long and hard days. I don't know if I would be who I am today had she not been there with me during that long season. God knew that I would need a friend to hug me when I cried, to laugh with me, to sneak to the kitchen in the middle of the night for a spoonful of peanut butter, to go exercising on the track, to go to the store, to drive to the library and then walk to Starbucks, to sit on the porch late at night looking at the moon, eat strawberry rhubarb pie, and the list goes on and on.
Yes she is amazing!
Thank you God for this precious friend!
Happy Birthday Anna!
