Jen's Birthday

I shot an arrow into the air, It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.

I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?

Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend

By H. W. Longfellow

I thank God for my best friend Jen many times each week.

She helps me with Kaish!

She helps me with stress.

She helps me with laughter.

I know that each moment I spend with her is time well spent.

Today she celebrated her 32nd Birthday.

I hope this is the year that all her dreams come true.

I love you, Jen!
