I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall.
- Eleanor Roosevelt
I don’t know if you know my friend Megan, but you should. She would never admit it but she’s incredibly magical. “If life were predictable it would cease to be life, and be without flavor.” Life with Megan is never without flavor. There is nothing better than getting swept up in her momentum, as she goes balls to the window (or the wall, whatever your choice may be). Ask anyone who is lucky enough to know her. I’m sure you will find few protests. She IS inspiration.
Today is her birthday and it’s also the last day of 2011. I’m pretty excited about it all because I know she’s going to kick major ass in 2012 and I’m so happy to have front row tickets and maybe, if I’m lucky, I’ll get to jump in as well.
Hey Megan – *whispers* Happy Birthday! I do love you so. You’re the only person I’ll let wake me up at 3am singing about your balls, I can guarantee. Thank you for seeing me and giving me the opportunity not only to be your friend but also, your employee. Our weddings are some of my best memories. Thanks for being the Chandler to my Monica. xo
You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’
