I have this friend.

Y’all. This girl? She takes funny to another level. She cries when she laughs hard. See that hand on her chest? That’s where it goes before she wipes those laughing tears away. Her laugh is infectious. Did you know she was the cover model for a magazine? Yep, Beef Week Magazine. She can get a group rollin’ with her stories about growing up in ‘Bama – like when her daddy made her drive an El Camino through town right after she got her driver’s license.

This girl? She takes tough to another level. Seriously. She has a testimony. Each part of who she is, she has carefully placed in the hands of her Heavenly Father. And don’t mess with her. She will go kettlebells on you. And then outrun you.

This girl? She takes faith to another level. Jesus got a hold of her heart a few years ago and she shines His love and life into all she knows. This is the girl you go to when you need a good word of encouragement from the Scriptures. She takes God’s promises and claims them for herself. She loves his Word and loves His church. She is truly a soul sister, beautiful inside and out.

It’s her birthday today. I am so blessed to call her my friend. I love you, Allison. You take friendship to another level.

She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she smiles at her future. ~Proverbs 31:25

    Shawna – are you pregnant? I was just thinking of you when I remembered how wonderful it will be NOT to pump at the girls weekend this year. Congrats if you are preggars!

  6. …and all of your other friends think, “I can’t wait for it to be MY birthday so MB can write a similarly beautifully post about ME!” Or maybe it was just me who thought that. Either way, on my birthday, leave OUT the vast majority of our history, or at least years circa 1983-2000.

    Happy birthday to AllieMac, who sounds pretty awesome!
