My good friend, Melinda, Happy Birthday!
She’s known me since about 1st grade!
This is actually a picture from second grade. Can you spot us both? It’s not that hard, as we still look pretty much the same, right?
Even though we’ve known each other for a long long time, it was in high school that we began to rely on each other. We sang together in choir, played bells together in Bell choir, and were partners in many antics, which I won’t begin to go into here.
We were roommates in college, with schemes and plans of all kinds. She’s been with me through a lot of growing, learning, and laughing.
Our kids are friends now, and we hope that friendship continues for a long time to come.
Happy Birthday, Mel. I really love ya!
