September 6 was painful for two mothers but I am oh so very grateful.
These two ladies are beautiful, powerful, strong and courageous. They let me believe in true friendship and show me that distance is no boundary.
So without further ado, a wonderful and happy birthday (a blog day late) to Sam and Sabrina! In honor of their vaginal escape I asked them to share with me three things that they have learned in this last year and how it will contribute to their future. They are oddly similar ;-) I guess great minds think alike.

Sam, my best friend and my backbone for the last 9 years. There is not a thing that I have went through that she hasn't been there for. She's an amazing single mom to an almost birthday twin to E and is finally following her dream!
#1- "I learned my birthday isn't fun without my bestie! Future means birthday road trips!!
#2- "When you actually follow your dreams it makes you happy! I plan to be happy from now on, so (a) happy future!"
#3- "I've learned when you can tell someone is your true friend and not to waste time on temporary ones. This means I'm set for my future with the besties I have beside me right now!"

Sabrina and I became instant friends almost 3 years ago. She is the image of Superwoman and does a dang good job wrangling her 3 little munchkins.
#1- "I've learned to not sweat the small things and not letting 'myself' get stressed about the things I can't control."
#2- "I don't need a lot of friends. I just need a few that will always be there. I am not always worried about making people like me.
#3- "Life will happen whether you want it to or not. I can't be mad about things I cannot change. I have control over situations, but things in life just happen and I've learned to just be OK with it.
I am so lucky to have these wonderful ladies in my life and couldn't be more proud to be their friend!
Love you both to pieces!!
