Making it so much better

After my Mom died, I have had no interest in celebrating my birthday. The thought is just too painful ~ to be here now without the Mother who brought me to this incredible life...it really stirs up the aching in my heart.

But for the past two years I have had a group of friends who have rallied around me and and loved me through this time. They have made my birthday so incredibly special ~ so fun, so loving, so hilarious, so beautiful, so memorable...
Celebrating just the way my Mother would...

It would take me approximately three lifetimes to thank these woman for the gift of their friendship...

I love you all so very much and I am so grateful to have you as sisters. . .

*missing from photo, Melody Ross, Kolleen, Jonatha and all the rest of the sweet angels who made that day so sweet....
