Happy Birthday to my dear, dear friend Rachel. I've had the pleasure of her friendship for nearly 10 years now, and she has redefined the word "friend" for me. She is the epitome of loyalty, grace, beauty, intelligence, & understanding....to name just a few of her attributes. She's a tower of strength when I need her. She's hip & wears killer clothes/shoes/boots. There is no way that I could name all the "gifts" that she has given me. A few examples: thanks to her, I know the joy of hearing Blossom Deary sing, I discovered a new spiritual path perfect for me, I learned what a "url" was and learned how to navigate the web long before it became so mainstream, and I learned to make good coffee.
She's the best, and I love her dearly.
