Happy Birthday Nicole

Monday 8/11 is my dear friend Nicole's birthday. I won't reveal her age but I will say this -- she's OLDER than me :-)!! As kids that used to bother me. But today, not so much. I actually cherish my youth and admire how beautifully she handles the whole aging process :-)

Just Kidding!

Seriously Nicole, I want to wish you the happiest birthday EVER! I am so thankful for you, our long friendship. All we have loved, lived,and shared together. You are an amazing friend and one I deeply admire, respect and am truly thankful for!

I found this poem and wanted to dedicate to you:

What Is A Friend?

A friend is somebody
Who knows you and likes you
Exactly the way that you are.

Someone who's special
And so close in thought
That no distance can ever seem far.

A friend understands you
Without any words,
Stands by you
When nothing goes right.

And willingly talks
Over problems with you
Till they somehow
Just vanish from sight.

And whether you're neighbors
Or live miles apart,
A word from a friend gives a lift
To your heart and spirit.

That shows you once more
Why friendship is life's dearest gift!
