Really, every post could have that title...because on some level every time I pick up a pencil, or a brush, or needle and thread...I am always thinking about my friend. Amy would have been 34 today. I wonder how would have celebrated? Where would she be living? Who would her husband be? Would she have any children? We will never know. I think about her everyday...but on her birthday my thoughts are on what she would be like today, sitting in front of me.
Amy, if you were here I would make you a piece of art. Well...I did make you a piece of art. If you were here I would make sure you had a cake, a really cool one. I doubt I would make the cake, you know I can't bake or cook for that matter. Amy, if you were here right now I would have presents for you, with sparkles and feathers on the wrapping paper, and a card letting you know how much I love you, and how amazing it is to be getting another year older with you as my best friend. It would be a funny card, probably with some old ladies on it...saving a serious card for next when we are turning 35.
If you were only here.
So...that is my post for today. I miss my best friend. Happy Birthday, Amy German, wherever you are.
