Birthday Wishes

a person who is very special to me
is celebrating a birthday today

she is one of my closest dearest friends

we did not meet by chance
because we are related

our relationship started when she was born
here I am ~ all of 2 1/2 and she a mere babe

I could fill pages with pictures of us together
as there are many

our grandfather called us
2 peas in a pod
yup ~ that's us

the matching shirts phase

at the farm on a beautiful Sunday afternoon

memories are made of times like this
 I was her maid of honor at her wedding

 and she was mine

we have seen each other through so much
and I am grateful that we have remained close
although distance separates us
we do not get to see each other nearly enough

we share secrets
and long phone conversations

we use to send cards and letters

now most times it is chatting on line
and emails

so today I want to celebrate her
from the little girl she was
to the wonderful woman she is today

she is a wife, a mother, a daughter, 
a teacher, a friend
and someone I love with all my heart.

Happy Birthday Gina
I hope you have the best one yet!


Cheers to the memories we have made
and the ones that are yet to come.

Love you!
