Another Happy Birthday


WARNING: If you do not see or hear from me again, please contact Donna Gerdts for serious questioning!!!
This is my "office mate" Donna!! She turned the big 40 on Saturday and I want to wish her a very public HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!
I met Donna several years ago when she moved down here from the north. She came to our church and for some reason, she just "clicked" with me. I always tried very hard to talk to Donna whenever I saw her. She paid me one of the highest compliments that I think I have ever been paid! I won't go into detail but I will just tell you that I have NEVER forgotten what she said to me!! She would ask me from time to time about my job and what I was doing and I often walked away from those conversations thinking about how much fun it would be to work with her. Then about a year and a half ago, I was looking for a job and saw the ad for a receptionist here and was so excited. I came, applied, got the job and the rest is history!
We have worked together since and she is something else!! We laugh, we talk, we make fun of each other (or at least I make fun of her!!), we cry, we have good and bad days but we have a complete blast while we do it!! She is so much fun to be around! I count her among my closest and dearest friends and am so glad I met her!
Happy birthday, Donna! Love ya!!!

Leah,
That was just soooooo sweet! Thank you very much! I had a wonderful weekend celebration but I'm still "kicking and screaming" about the big 40!!

PS: I still believe in the compliment I gave you several years ago. Thanks for being a great friend!!
