Today (Friday) is a very special lady's 50th birthday! Barbara is one of the first bloggers I met and has been a loyal friend. She's one of those folks who you can tell anything to and she'll listen and not judge. The thing is, she genuinely cares about other people. She can be going through her own personal hell but she has time to rejoice with you about something that's going on in your life. She is one of the most self-less people I know. Since I've known her I've seen her go through what may be the toughest thing anybody can ever go through and yet she has faced it with dignity and grace and wisdom. If you haven't been to her blog, GO THERE NOW and say hello. You won't regret it.
Barbara, I wish I knew of a way to let Bruce (or Bono) know about you because I am very sure that if either of them did, they would be honored to wish you a Happy Birthday. I love ya! I'm proud of ya! I'm grateful to have met ya!
Happy Birthday girl! If anybody deserves to have a good one, you do!
