******Happy Birthday,Beth******

This is my favorite quote in respect to friendship...

"Oh the comfort the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person.Having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words but pouring all right out just as they are chaff and grain together certain that a faithful friendly hand will take and sift them keep what is worth keeping and with a breath of understanding blow the rest away."~George Eliot

I wrote this to my friend Beth (mommy first-designer born) last year in a card on her birthday! It is rare to find someone who understands you and truly accepts you through all your ups and downs just where you are and lets you just be you...a friend who doesn't let a bad day define you, or keep score w/you, or always compete w/ you (we all know those people) But,Beth is this quoted person to me...a kindred spirit...a true blessing in my life. We have now been friends for almost 15 years and have seen each other through when to now and who would have thought since we now laugh about not even liking one another at first--isn't life funny like that!
Last year today her husband surprised her w/me coming to Idaho from Florida (thanks again,Jake!:)some of my best times are with her and I always miss her(it was like a present for me) What fun memories--we could do absolutely nothing and have fun! love, Kim
Wishing you all the best today,Beth!

thanks kim! i actually remember you taking that picture of me in college. i was such a dork-dancing around like j-lo (oh yeah, we didn't know about her yet). yes, i had a nice day--lunch with a lorilu, and some shopping, and then a special dinner prepared by my hubby himself (crablegs and steak!) very good i must say. a year older--a year richer---with all that God has blessed me with. last year i was pregnant with presleigh--now, i get to see her, kiss her, and take care of her.

i thank you for your consistant friendship and loyalty. i know my life is sweeter because you are in it.
