Happy Birthday SweetPea!

Posted by on Saturday, March 29th, 2008

Today is a very special day, indeed! My precious best friend Shannon is celebrating her birthday!! WooHooo!

SISTERCHICK (n): A friend who shares the deepest wonders of your heart, loves you like a sister, and provides a reality check when you are being a brat.

She is one of these. My sisterchick.
Here lately, we refer to ourselves commonly as

“Pod Sisters”

because we are like “two peas in a pod”!

You know the whole nickname thing I’ve been talking about this week?

She didn’t have one (well, one that she liked anyway…. don’t know why she didn’t like “Shanner-Nanner” as a kid! ;) Maybe it was sort of like the way my sweet Beebo doesn’t like it when I call her HannahBanana or the way I didn’t like it when my sisters called me GinaBeana as a child. Hmmmm…. note to self, may be best to not give people nicknames that have ANYTHING to do with food! lol)

So, I’ll from here on out refer to my BFF as SweetPea. Awwwww.

Oh wait…. that’s a FOOD item!! :P

She is a wonderful woman, a treasure to have met, and to hold near and dear to me. Her unending positiveness, humor and strong spirit are a few of the things that caused her to wiggle her way into my heart and I am truly blessed for this!!

In honor of her birthday, I feel compelled to share how much she means to me. And because she is far too modest to tell you any these things, I’ve taken it upon myself to share a little bit about her and what she means to me. :)

“Happy Birthday” means much more

Than have a happy day.

Within these words lie lots of things

I never get to say.

It means I love you first of all,

Then thanks for all you do.

It means you mean a lot to me,

And that I’m proud of you.

Bur most of all, I guess it means

That I am thinking of

Your happiness on this day, YOUR day,

With pleasure and with love.
