Today is my dearest friend Cheryl’s birthday! We have 23 years of friendship and that says it all. In good times and in bad, our friendship has endured (cue up Dionne Warwick). She knows the worst facets of me and yet she still likes me. When my world fell apart twice, she was there to help me find my balance. Although, she did laugh when I fell once at the bar singing YMCA, she helped me get up then too. I even made the huge mistake of letting our friendship go for a while and I’m so glad that she pushed me to an even greater relationship. I’m blessed to have 3 sisters but Cheryl is my soul sister and I’m grateful for her being a part of my life.
