I find myself seriously disappointed in my powers of rhyme and meter this evening, so instead of "crucifying this verse" as Cole Porter might put it, I'll just tell you about my latest project, mmmk?

I of course landed in the best place, Southern Indiana. But my good friend, Lisa, would certainly take issue with that point of view.
You see, she's from Texas.
Yup. And she's having a Texas birthday this year.
So she called me up to find out if cake pops...that is...Saturdays...ship well. Which they do! And tomorrow morning they'll be winging their way to her door.

I have had the privilege of calling a few people my friend over the years who have shown themselves to be the very best, stalwart kind of souls you want walking with you through your life.
Lisa's one of those people.
I haven't actually seen her for more than four years, but my son sleeps with a quilt she made by hand, and every day I eat off of dishes she bought for me as a wedding gift years ago. I have a great suspicion that she has silently come to my aid when I've been most in need, though I can't prove it. She's on a very short list of people I am sure I will know when I am 80 - and on an even shorter list of people I knowwho will still be able to hold their liquor when they're that old.
When I was lonely and lost in a big city, God gave me a good friend. I enjoyed many happy evenings in her company, and only wish I could help celebrate her birthday in person.
Here's to you, Lisa. I thank God for allowing our paths to cross, and I pray God's blessings on your head.
Happy Birthday. Go eat cake:).
