About 50 years ago when we were 10 (don't tell her I told you that), I met a girl who was to become one of the constant friends of my life! Even though there were years where our paths did not cross, I always knew she was out there and over the years we have reconnected many times, thank goodness!
What is a friend? I can only express the feelings in my heart....when I think of Janet I think of times when I wanted to hug her and never let go, I think of times when I wanted to pull all the hair out of her head! (she would say the same I am sure)! She was neat as a pin where I was messy and disorganized. She has curly red hair that I envied every single day and she wanted my straight blond hair with a passion. She had a bosom, I had well.......not. She knew what to do in every situation, I cried.
She can throw a party for 200, I have trouble fixing dinner for myself. I create art with my hands, Janet would put Queen Elizabeth's protocol secretary to shame. I'm Pisces, she's Virgo!
We are as different as night and day, yet through it all and no matter what, one thing has never changed Janet...you are my dearest and most treasured friend, and today I wish you the very happiest of birthdays! I love you truly and always will!
