This little girl has shown me so much about life in the past year. I love her more than she could ever know and I love her mommy so much too! She makes me so proud and I am amazed at how smart she is. She is brave and full of so much courage. Her daddy is STILL in Iraq but will be home in a few short weeks. I cant wait to finally see them together again. Happy Birthday Gracie Poo. I love you SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much...to the end of the world!
Rachel Lynn Pettit also had a birthday yesterday!
I know without even writing it that our friendship goes unsaid. This girl has been my best friend since the day we first started talking. I have confided in her, loved her and cherished her in so many ways. We have been through deployments, births of my babies, trips to IL and back to NC together, husbands screwing up, laughter, tears, and so much more. She has been my strength and courage when I had none. She has shown me beauty in new ways and taught me that loving God is simple and easy. Her relationship with the people in her life is true, real, delicate and vital and I am so proud to be her best friend. I love you Rache! I wish I could have shared your day with you but know that I did in my heart. We'll see you guys soon and I am so proud of you! You are an inspiration to me and I am thankful for you every day!!! Hope it was a great one!
