The Birthday Girl

Today is my sweet friend's birthday.  I have to take a minute to brag about her on her birthday.  Lori is one of a kind. She and I are spontaneous sisters.  She calls, I come.  I call, she goes.  We are partners in crime.  She has a great big heart, cooks great lasagna and makes the best Panchos dip EVER.  She manages an office full of women and for me that makes her a super hero with a cape that gives her extraordinary powers.  We've rode together in a car for nine days straight.. across 7 states.  I think we are committed.  We've made it through some "tell it like it is times"  I think that qualifies us.  She's beautiful....on the inside too.  Don't hate on her.  I've often felt her hand on my back or reaching out to take mine in hers as I've knelt at the altar to pray.  I had surgery last year and she offered to use her vacation time to stay home with me the first few days.  Abnormal mammogram?  She's right there with me.    Potentially flooding house?  She cancels her plans and shows up to help....and brings her family too!!!  She's loyal people. They just don't make many like her.  I am so blessed to call her my friend and today on her birthday I want her to know that I love her with all my heart and am so glad that the Lord chose us to encourage, support, play and pray together.
Happy birthday beautiful lady....You are a gift to my world :)
