It’s Kizz‘s birthday today! My smart, funny friend is celebrating another year on this planet.
I’m very lucky to have Kizz in my life. We were friends in high school, but lost touch after graduation. We found each other again at our fifth** reunion, and she’s been a staple in my life ever since. We live some 300 miles apart, so I only get to lay eyes on her maybe once or twice a year, but thanks to the marvels of modern technology (and our respective work flexibility), we get to “speak” almost every day via IM.
She’s someone I go to for help with all kinds of questions. She has no children of her own, but that doesn’t keep her from offering what I think is top-notch parenting advice. She’s creative, and inspires me to be so. She makes me laugh all the time.
I’m glad she’s my friend.
Go on over and wish her happy. She deserves it.
**Edited for correction – it was our TENTH reunion, not our fifth. Oops….
