Happy Birthday My Sweet Friend!

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 “Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up.” (NIV)

Happy Birthday My Sweet Friend Lisa!

God is so good to me!  I have some of the best friends ever!  My girl, Lisa, is one of them!  We have been through thick and thin together.  Literally!  She was one of my first running partners... uh hum...
We did a 5 k back in the day : )

God put her in my life just in time.... He used her to help me through some difficult times when we were facing infertility.. ugh, that was hard.  When my husband could not go to the doctor's appointments with me, she was there.  Right next to me asking all the hard questions.  When I got the call that I was not pregnant AGAIN, she was there for me to cry on her shoulder.  One time I was actually at her house for an annual cookie exchange that we have done for about 20 years when I got the call.  The picture above is of my girlie girl with Lisa making her home made italian cookies at our last cookie exchange.

Now, we are raising our kids together...the Lord answered our prayers. Our boys are the same age and have been best buds for life.  I always go to her when I need to talk about what to do with our kiddos.
Oh, and did I mention, she is the reason I started home schooling? And on good days I am thankful for that... but on bad days, I blame her.  (Keeping it real!)

Most importantly, Lisa is an awesome example to me! She is a wonderful wife, incredible mother and is SOLD OUT to Jesus!

Can you tell I LOVE HER???


oh, and by the way, Lisa can you watch my kids???
Just saying!



  1. Are you trying to make me cry on my birthday?!!!
    Your friendship is a precious gift from God and I think you know what it means for me to say, You are my sister in every sense of the word. I love you!!! And, YES! I would love to watch your 6 ft. boy and VERY capable daughter! They are amazing. :)

  2. I cried reading this!!! I praise God you had such a friend to help you through your infertility days. My little sister was my BEST friend and ALWAYS a shoulder to cry on during our many years of infertility. Many months she had me sobbing on her. Happy birthday to Lisa!

  3. What a great post! (Hopping over from Company Girl) I have a best friend like that too. Don't know what I'd do without her. What a blessing!

  4. Wow, what an amazing friendship! You are truly blessed! After praying for a "3 a.m." friend for several years, God has finally placed a couple of really special friends in my life and it is like a little taste of Heaven!

    Have a great weekend!

  5. No wonderful I'm 2nd...Lol..She is pretty awesome!

  7. What a wonderful tribute to Lisa! Most people would love to have a friend half as good as that!! You are blessed. :)

  8. What a blessing! There is nothing like a Lisa kinda friendship! I'm convinced those kinds of friends are angels!
    Blessings from a fellow Company Girl!
