So, my dear friend, you are turning thirty. I think the best part of this day is not the fact that you are older than me, although that part is great too, it is the fact that I have known you for so long. How many people are lucky enough to say that they have been friends with someone, at your age, for almost twenty-five years? That is a long, long time. Our friendship has withstood the test of time. You are a dear friend and I love you.
I love you so much that I want others to share in the magnificence of your life. So today, on the start of your 31st year, I offer to the world, glimpses of your life so far.
I am proud to say I knew you when...
For real, Happy Birthday my dear friend. I hope the next 30 are as good for you as the first 30, and I hope I am still along for the ride.
