today is the birthday of one of my dearest, sweetest, most precious friends.
sarah is someone that i deeply admire and greatly respect.
we have walked together through some very difficult and very joyous times.
she is a incredible mother,
a steadfast friend,
a loving daughter,
a self-less sister,
and much much more.
i honestly can not imagine my life without her.
we met our first weekend of college. we were both moving into the same mod.
top floor of Regier Hall. middle mod.
who knew that we would become such life-long friends.
she is like a sister to me in many ways.
i feel at home with her family.
i love her daughter Taylor with all my heart and miss her like crazy.
and when i say life-long....i say it with more certainty than words convey.
our friendship is simple. deep. easy-going. genuine.
that is why i know that no matter where life takes us.
how far or close.
how many days pass before our phone tag turns into a real conversation.
no matter what.
she'll be there when i need her.
and i'll be here when she needs me.
that's the kind of friend she is.
and that is the kind of friend she inspires me to be!
sarah, i celebrate you!
not only today, but ESPECIALLY today.
i praise God for your life and that he continues to allow us to be friends.
i look forward to experience more adventures with you as the years go by.
i love you.
