Happy Birthday, Rebekah!

Yes, a lot of special people in my life have birthdays this week.  It just makes everything more exciting. :)

Today is my lovely friend Rebekah's birthday.

Rebekah, I just love you so much.  Every time I think about you, a big smile comes to my face.  You're a wonderful friend.  Do you remember the first time we met?  You'd just moved in to the house next door.  You and Rachel knocked on my front door and asked if I wanted to play.  We spent the next couple of hours chatting nervously while swinging on the tiny swingset in my backyard.

After that, our lives were never the same, whether we were playing Hypnotized Kitties or the Pitbull Game, writing "The Best Friend Mysteries," running from tornados/leaf blowers in the park, selling bracelets to bearded motorcyclists, or making shoebox houses for our many Polly Pockets.

I literally cannot imagine what my life would be like without you... and I don't want to!  Whenever I'm feeling lonely or sad, you are always there for me.  I love you so much.  You have encouraged me through everything.  I love making memories with you.  I love playing in the rain, watching "Lost," pranking Mub, talking about boys, and making hilarious videos.  I love getting Ali to sleep talk and secretly capturing her antics on camera.  I love spending time with YOU, Rebekah.  You are amazing.
We've been friends since we were seven.  I know we'll be friends for the rest of our lives.  I cannot wait to see how far the Lord takes you in life because I can already see that He has huge plans for you!  I cannot wait to see how we grow in our friendship as well.  You're so special and so beautiful, both inside and out.

Happy birthday, my love!
