Our lives are filled with beautiful and wonderful people. People who touch our lives and help us want to be better. It is one of the great blessings. Every once in a while someone comes along who is extraordinary and makes you remember those blessings taken for granted.
Spencer (her online pseudonym) has become one of those special people in our lives, not only is she a best friend but she has become a sister. She walks in the door and her name can be heard echoing through the house. She laughs at the silly stories, comforts when there is sadness, helps around the house (a mother's dream come true), and even endures an impromptu photo shoot.
Now as a mother, you pray for a friend like Spencer for your daughter. This is the point in the post where I wax emotional, go on and on about her amazing qualities (which are many), perhaps be even more embarrassing than I already am. This would also be the point in the post where my proof reader rolls her eyes because she can't believe she is related to me, but waxing emotional is who I am so I'm going with it.
So darling Spencer we hope to get you home by curfew, not teach you too many bad habits, and hopefully the baby boys will stop streaking though the house when you come over.
