Happy Birthday Rachel!

With Rachel and little Timothy (Thanksgiving 2005)

Us at my wedding events

Yesterday was my best friend Rachel's 26th birthday. (Man, we are getting old!) Rachel has been my very best friend since kindergarten. How many people can say they that! It is hard to think of a childhood memory without Rachel in it. Our friendship has survived many different hardships over the years, some to include her diabetics, my parents divorce, a move across the state, and ultimately the lapses that can occur from long distance friendships. But, through it all we have remained friends. We don't talk as often as either of us would like, but we still send cards and letters to each other and I visit her every time I am in Jackson. Now with e-mail, we are corresponding more and I love it! She has a son Timothy who I count as my own nephew and her parents as my second set. When we were little girls we use to tell everyone we were half-sisters. I think we had her neighbors believing us because if I wasn't at her house then she was at mine. We were inseparable. So, Happy Birthday Rachel! Miss you & I love you lots!
