Happy Birthday Elizabeth!
On my Birthday she wrote this beautiful post that made me laugh and cry...in response to that all I can say is, pay back is sweet dear one...
My friend Elizabeth and I kind of grew up together until she had to move away and then I felt sad and broken. Elizabeth and I dated a lot of the same guys in junior high and high school. I guess I picked up her left-overs :). She was always the cool friend that always seemed to have it all together...I wanted to be like her...which isn't why I dated those guys btw, those are just two facts.
I feel so blessed to now be able to be friends with Elizabeth through Facebook and emails. Her and I became stay-at-home Mommies about the same time. I've got to admit that when I left work it was really hard. And scary. It was so wonderful to be able to write back and forth about trusting in the Lord concerning finances, children's health issues, and attitudes. It's nice to have someone in the same boat. It was nice to have a sounding board whom I knew was there.
Elizabeth has been through a lot and she faces everything with strength and dignity. I am so proud to call her a friend and a Sister in Christ! She leads me through her example of grace and faith. I am sure that today on her Birthday and every day her children rise up and call her blessed and her Husband gives her praise.
Happy Birthay dear, sweet friend. I'm thankful for you always inspiring me to be a better person. I love you and am so blessed to have you in my life...still!
