if you don't know her....

This is my best friend Jeanne. I met her a little over 5 years ago at a park in the town that i had just moved to. Jeanne and her hubby were in the process of building their house and we all just happened to be at the park, all of us, at the same time. Her oldest is just a little older than my oldest, and her middle just a little younger than my middle.
Jeanne introduced herself, and gave me her phone number.
I never called her.
It wasn't till i was pregnant with my third that we really found each other again.
Jeanne is one of my very best friends. She truly cares about me and my family.
She cares about my children. She's honest, she's fun, she's creative.
This girl is going places.
She flew to California to meet me for 5 hours.
She knows what an Illinois winter is all about.
She and her family called to sing Happy Birthday to me.
She asks about how I feel about closing my shop.
She's a friend.
She cares.
Thanks for being you!

Yes, I "know" Jeanne, too. Kinda. :) She has been a wonderful customer and commenter (is that word?) on my blog. Thanks, Jeanne, for YOU! :)

Sure...don't call me back. I move to a new town, need a friend and I get the cold shoulder:-) It is so funny that we ended up being great friends and then you move to Illinois near where I grew up. At least I get to see you when I come home. I am blessed by your friendship too. Thank you for the sweet post!

Yes, Jeanne is a beautiful person, and a good friend. She is genuine, and authentic (the real deal). You, too, are a good friend, and I'm so blessed to know, and be good friends with you both! We are lucky!
