Don't you just love it when you learn something new about a friend?
This is a friend I adore. I cherish any time I get with her, I respect her, I look up to her, she makes me laugh, she encourages me, she laughs at me, she tells me when I'm wrong. I think she would probably not think twice about bringing harm to anyone who brought harm to me, and I'm pretty sure she knows I would seriously injure anybody who slightly injured her. You are a very blessed person if you can call her your friend. She is my friend, and I am blessed by it.
And just when you think you really know someone well, some juicy little tid-bit comes bubbling to the surface and makes you say, "WHAT???!!!" Today I had that happen, and it makes me grin every time it comes to my mind. If I didn't already love her enough, I now love her even more. She has wiggled her way into a deeper pocket of my heart.
Today I learned that she starts everyday with a half a cup of chocolate milk. It's what she uses to wash down her vitamins.
And knowing this has officially cemented her as one of my favorite people. And given me new gift-giving ideas. And brought me utter irrational joy this afternoon.
You know who you are, and I love you very much. Cheers to you, friend!
