20: Dear Carol, I am so grateful Sue and Michelle gave me this opportunity to sit down and take some time to reflect on our treasured friendship. It’s been 35 years of supporting each other through joys and sorrows, tears and abundant laughter. I always look forward to the times I spend with you and also the times the four of us get together. Our friendship has been a special blessing to me. Your have always been first on my list to call for advice ranging from pregnancies to babies to parenting teens and grandbabies you have been a great source of wisdom to me on many occasions. The fun times getting together as families, the great boat rides on Christmas Lake, and our monthly dinner dates to catch up on our busy lives. I remember the “fun” times; babies, showers, weddings, wonderful dinners at your house. Your house is Jose’s favorite restaurant! You have provided your beautiful dipped strawberries at every special party I have ever had, plus you are the best “kitchen help” ever! So many wonderful memories! Thank you for taking me to Dayton’s shopping when I was 9 months pregnant with the twins “to get things going” and the times you have spent with my mom since she’s been alone, she loves to see you. Then, there was the time you offered to come to Mara & Todd’s wedding early with snacks and activities for the five little ones, in the wedding, that really saved the day. You were there for me during the sad times too, going through my divorce. You were there to hold me and cry with me at my dad’s funeral as they closed the casket. That was one of the hardest moments in my life and you were right beside me knowing how hard it would be! I remember the very special gift you gave me the day of the funeral, a package of beautiful flowered Kleenex to use to wipe away those “special” tears. I keep one in my Bible and when I do my devotions I remember how blessed I am to have you in my life. You are my “angel with skin on!” You never stop giving, caring, and loving your family friends and even strangers. You are the best and we all have been blessed!! God bless you Carol as you celebrate your special birthday. I love you, Connie
