The Blessing of a Girlfriend
Today is my best girlfriend's birthday. Happy Birthday, baby girl!
I am thankful that 31 years ago a four-pound preemie made her early entrance into this world. I'm thankful she was a fighter and did well and grew up to play saxophone with me in the band. Saxes are sexy!
I'm so thankful for all the inside jokes. Take the bull by the horns!
I'm happy for so many memories of drinks shared around campfires at Lake Tweet. For that one blessed year that we lived together at 36 Morris Avenue and the funny times we spent on the roof.
I'm so glad to know the blessing of a best girlfriend.
For all the times we've had, the discussions we've shared, the times we've saved each other from ourselves and all that is yet to come: happy birthday, sweetheart. I love you! I am elated your day has been so happy.
January just might be a good month for a birthday after all...
