A Happy Heart: My Friend "K"

I'm so excited about today's post.

This month I've been thinking about all the things that make my heart happy.

And trust me, there are MANY.

Before I go any further, I should probably explain today's post.

I have a friend who makes my heart happy in ways that are hard to describe.

And this sweet friend has threatened me within an inch of my life if I ever did a post on her.

(ohhhh.....I feel the gut giggle coming)


In an effort to be a good friend, I've decided to 'disguise' her, so she can't be mad at me.

(yep. the giggle is coming)

And to be extra safe, I will just call her "K".
(those of you who know her will know why this is making my gut giggle REALLY LOUD right now)


Introducing my friend "K"

No eyes. 
Great disguise.
But, maybe someone will still be able to tell.
Let's try something different.

That might be better.
Her smile IS pretty fantastic.
But, then again, maybe I should try something else.
I don't want her to be upset with me.

I don't know.
What do you think?
Is that good enough?



That's a great disguise.



On to my friend "K"

The first time I flew out to Tennessee to meet Big Daddy was the first time I met "K".

He picked me up from the hotel the first morning and gave me some lame excuse about having to go somewhere.....and do something.....blah, blah, blah.....and THEN he said, 

"Sooo, I'm going to have you spend some time with my friend 'K'."

It was my first 'interview'.

And my life with "K" began.

I still remember those first moments of meeting her. 
They are locked into my brain and into my heart.
I instantly knew that I had found not just a friend, 
but a kindred spirit.
I knew that our lives would be connected from that point on.

And they have been.

I spent the day with her and her darling girls, and loved every single minute. 
That time with them is also locked into my heart.

She made a decision from the very beginning to find 
a place in her heart for me and she has very tenderly kept me in that spot.

She has loved me.
She has listened.
She has calmed my fears.
She has seen me shed many tears and has cheered me on as I've dealt with the challenges of this life.

She has been not only a friend, but a sister, a confidant, a healer, and my lifesaver on many occasions.

I talk to "K" on the phone just about every day. 
And when I don't, my day is not the same.

She always has stories for me and she ALWAYS makes me laugh.
She gets me.

On every level.

And I love her for that.

So, "K"
Thank you.

Thank you for a friendship that is uniquely ours.
Thank you for loving me.
Thank you for putting up with me.
Thank you for your example.

You are beautiful in every possible way
and you make me a better person.

You truly are a kindred spirit.

And today, you make my heart very happy.

(And no one can be mad at someone with a happy heart. Just remember that.)

Oh, this totally made me cry. I love K also. She is an answer to prayers in so many ways. How I wish I could clone her and have one of her here with me. She has a very special Christ like love for those around her. She is kind, tender hearted, patient, loving, and oh so funny!!!! She makes my heart happy too. I do love me some K.
