So often since I’ve started blogging, I’ve had delusions of grandeur that I would make a birthday dedication post to all my friends and family who I know read this blog. I think I did it once, maybe, for my husband. Well, today makes twice! Today is my amazing sister-in-law’s birthday. Mike and Becky started dating (if you call it that when you are 15) right before I went to college, so even though I knew her and always liked her, we weren’t close.

Then we were both given the disguised gift of having to take adminstrative jobs at the church. For a year and a half, we sat about 3 feet apart and experienced that depth of friendship that happens when you have someone you really like within talking distance for 8 hours a day, months and months at a time. We talked about everything from our families to church politics to random and trivial things like TV shows and our bad hair days. I knew it was fun, but at the time I didn’t realize what a blessing it was that I was being given a foundation with my brother’s wife that was transforming us from friends to sisters.

Becky is an amazing singer, friend, wife, sister and mother. I love you, Becky, and hope you have a WONDERFUL birthday!
