Happy Birthday!

For the last 13 years, you have been a source of laughter, smiles, frustration, tears, drunken nights and more-than-sober realizations.  We have been through not only the highs of friendship, but the lows of throwing veritable punches.  A companion, a friend, a sister, a godmother to my son - even when things are filled with disaster, it never lasts long, bringing us back to some deep-rooted understanding that no one else has truly been able to accomplish. 

I don't think that anyone could fill your shoes, Bea.  Not only have you been able to understand the unspoken, but you have grown into a strong woman and an incredible mom.  There truly isn't anyone else that I would have wanted to spend so many moments of absolute emotion with!  Even though we ride some strange rollercoaster of insanity together, sometimes riding high through the happiness that is life, and sometimes dipping down into the bitter angst that threatens to tear at our binds, it has always amazed me at how quickly we are able to close our eyes and realize that, no matter, we are still firmly seated and ready to face another piece of the tracks.

Happy, happy 27th birthday, Beazilla!  May the years bring many many more opportunities to express just how much you have meant to me!
