Happy Birthday to my Bat Girl...

Dear BFF for ever and ever and ever,

Happy Birthday to you! You are so much more than just my friend; you are my better half, the filing cabinet in my head, the color in my cheeks and the giggle in my heart! I can’t imagine a single day without you, a single minute of you not being in my life. There just isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for you. You are the best friend every one should have.

Trying to describe you to anyone is almost impossible. How do you tell someone that your best friend is an extension of yourself, someone who’s heart broke with mine when my nephew was killed, someone who stood by my side as I watched my Grammie suffer and never had to say a word because she knew exactly how I felt. How can I possibly explain to anyone else how if it weren’t for you I wouldn’t even be the person I am right now, I wouldn’t exist as I am? How do you tell another person who doesn’t have their own personal “Bat Girl” how you were just as excited as I was to meet Kid4 when she was born, that you waited all night for her and held her the second she was born? How can I explain it?

The fact that I don’t even have to explain to you how my heart is breaking that my oldest child is grown, how kid3 melts my heart away, how I think kid2 is the most amazing human on earth and how I couldn’t even take a breath without my Kid4 gives me a peace that surpasses understanding. The mere certainty that you are mine to love and rely on is an honor.

YOU my friend, my Bat Girl, My BFF make every day a WHOLE lot better, you make the sun shine brighter and you make life not only worth living but exciting , new and amazing.

I love you Bat Girl, Happy Birthday.
