Happy New Year and Happy Birthday!
New Years Eve is the birthday of a longtime friend of mine. I met Teresa 20 years ago. We instantly got along and became good friends. We've both been busy raising our kids, but we've always managed to keep in touch and get together on many occasions. She even worked at the same school, where I teach, for awhile. We are the same age too. Actually, she is 14 days older than me. So her wonderful son gave her a surprise lunch party for her yesterday (during her lunch hour). For this big birthday that we are having, I had to create something special just for her. Here is a photo of Teresa and I right after she opened my gift! So, here is to Teresa! Happy Birthday and a Happy New Year to all of my new friends!
