Happy Birthday Wendy!

I have a very beautiful sister in law. (one of 3 :) We used to live close and we became close friends. Then they up and moved to Utah! 

I miss her very much. I admire a lot about her. We haven't kept in touch very well because, well, it was hard for her to be gone and she missed everyone and every thing very much. And we both have 4 kids an that keeps us very busy. She and my brother came into town a couple of months ago, so we got to visit. We had fun @ CPK. So, today is her birthday and I want her to know how much I love her and miss her and hope she feels better. (she doesn't read or blog, but I wish she would) 

We raised our kids together for the most part. I think that is what I miss most. The relationship we had when our kids were little. It could be bumpy at times, but I know she loved (s) my kids so very much. 

I used to feel a bit jealous of what they had and what they offered. I wanted to be the one to take care of others, (financially). But I now know that any help she gave us was pure and righteous. I love you Wendy, thank you for always listening to your heart and mind. I miss you!

What a sweet tribute Hillary. You know that you have a true friend there. Through tough times and good times. It is such a blessing that she has a good friend in you too.
