happy birthday lizzie Throughout my life it's been important for me to surround myself with strong, compassionate, and kind women. I know how rare it can feel to find good, quality human beings in a world that breeds hate. I know how rare it is when when you find a woman who surpasses any idea you've held in your head about what a friend should act like, sound like, and the two of you just, as cliche as it sounds, click; the flow of conversation runs smoothly, everything feels easy and safe between the two of you, comfortable and right. I'd argue some women never find companions in life who have what we have. Maybe everyone says that about the positive relationships they have, that doesn't make it any less true for me. It's easy to find someone to talk to, someone who will listen, sure, but I don't think it's easy to find someone who will sacrifice their own happiness at times to be at the side of another person, who will make all the right jokes or pull you out from being lodged so far inside your own head. I found that in you. If I didn't know you, I'd want to know you. I admire and feel inspired by your warmth and generosity, your intelligence and the bright smile that I wish didn't leave your face. With you there can be gaps in time where we might be busy with other things, projects, life, men, whatever, but we're able to fall back easily into place and to me that is something I am so grateful for. I am forever grateful for you, your loyalty and empathy, dedication and grace. I'm so happy that I know you and even happier I get to call you my best lady. Have the best birthday and I cannot wait to celebrate with you soon. Love, Rosie.
