Today I am dedicating my blog to my best friend Roberta because (today) is her 41st birthday. Roberta has been my best friend for 22 years. We were classmates in 12th grade in a required business class.
Just a little history! My mom moved me and two of my younger siblings to this very small town in Texas from the largest city in the state. Now, the town was so small it only had one blinking red light and no street names. The town was so small there was only one school that served K-12th grade. The school was so small we only had 35 seniors enrolled. This was a total shock to my system because I came from a school with over 900 seniors at the time of enrollment. I was mad at my mom for pulling me out of school during my 12th grade year. But looking back on it that was the best move for me because I met the person that would be my best friend for life.
Okay, back to my best friend. I remember sitting in this very small class with only 6 students in it thinking, how can I get out of this place. I set across from Roberta the first week and realized three things about her: she was very smart, she was very shy and she was someone that I wanted to be friends with. Now, I have a true passion for shy people. They are very interesting once they open up and I like that. She was very shy but we became friends very fast. We finished high school and college together. She has been by my side the entire time. She is a friend that will call you just to check on you. She would give me the shirt, pants, underwear and socks off her back without blinking. I love Roberta more than a friend, she is like a sister to me. So, today I decided to honor my best friend by listing 41 reasons why I love her. Roberta thank you for loving me and accepting me for me. Happy Birthday Sister Friend!
