thankful tuesdays: happy birthday kathleen!

Today is the 29th birthday of a very special lady in my life, my best friend, Kat.

I am very fortunate to know a lot of amazing people, but with all due respect to them Kat is the most amazing person I know.

Life has thrown her some of the most incredibly horrible situations that life can possibly throw at one person -- in just 29 years. It's not fair. Period. But Kat has overcome it, never once placing blame on God or astrology, but instead plodding forward, using the experiences to make her a better, wiser, stronger person.

All of us are so proud of the woman she's become. I know I wouldn't be the woman I am without her support and her co-conspirating over the past 15 years. The last half my life would have been pretty dull if I didn't have Kat to scheme with me.

Even though we are thousands of miles apart, I always know I can shoot the "Kat-Signal" into the sky and she'll be there to support me in an instant. I am so grateful to have such an incredible friend.

Happy birthday Kathleen!!
