Lisa is one of the sweetest people I have ever known...she is caring, compassionate, creative, giving, encouraging and inspiring! Since I began this second battle with cancer last December, she has not missed one week without sending me an encouraging card...I cherish her friendship! When I discovered that her birthday was during my chemo week and I wouldn't be able to come to Little Rock to help her celebrate, I was sad. Yesterday, Kimberly and I took her to Bone Fish Grill to have some Bang Bang Shrimp and dinner under the premise of celebrating her birthday...she was truly surprised to find over 20 friends waitng to surprise her....she even jumped LOL! Angel, our friend and cake maker extraordinaire, made the perfect cake with the inscription "Queen of Everything"!..which she truly is! I was a little worried that the surprise would leak out since she is with most of these people everyday..just goes to show you that secrets can be kept! An added bonus to the day...I got to see and visit with friends that I haven't seen since I have been off work...makes me miss ACH even more. HAPPY BIRTHDAY LISA....hope you have a wonderful year!

It was great to see you at Lisa's party. I thought of you and Jennifer today when Zach and I went outside and noticed that one of the sunflowers (from the seeds you mailed us) is blooming! We have about 11 more that will be blooming in the next week or so. I'll have to take some pics and send them to you. I hope you are feeling better and sleeping better. I have been reading your blog and am so amazed by your strength. {{{{Hugs}}}}

Glad the sunflowers are getting ready to bloom....would love for you to send me pics...I can't look at a sunflower without thinking of my precious "Angel Jennifer"! Hope to see you again soon!
