This is my dear friend, Beth.
We met as freshman in high school.
We've been friends for twice as long as we were years old when we met.
You do the math.
A long time.
I can count on one hand the people I can call on day or night, no matter what.
Beth is on that hand.
Always has been.
Always will be.
Just like family to me.
She knows me and my history in a way that few people do.
She makes me laugh.
She holds me accountable.
And she's played a big part in shaping the woman I've grown up to be.
Happy birthday to you, my soul sister friend.
I rejoice that you were born!
