Today is her birthday.
She is my friend of 12-ish years — I stopped counting after we graduated high school.
Although, I guess we should not call her a girl. After all, she is now 25 years.
And, since she plans to live to be at least 100 years old — reference is on Facebook — she is a quarter-century.
She has traveled to amazing places and still seeks to see more of the world.
Ella habla Español fluently. She runs marathons — with me. (And, she was a sprinter in college!)
She’s smart, funny — um, hello, look at that picture! — and sincerely cares about others.
She has love to share with everyone.
Feliz cumpleaños, Joanna! Happy 25! Here’s to 75+ great more. It’s only just begun.
