“Hippo birdie two ewes, hippo birdie two ewes, hippo birdie dear Sarah, hippo birdie two ewes.”
We used to sing that song in 2nd grade … amazing the things we retain. I can’t remember my world history, but thankfully the hippo song is embedded in a safe place.
I decided that your birthday would be the perfect time to honor you my dear friend. It has only been recently that we’ve become reconnected and I am so grateful. You are an amazing woman and a blessed friend.
I don’t remember where this picture was taken … oh yeah … CAMP SHAMROCK! What an experience. I’m so glad that we got to come visit you guys. I know that I enjoyed it and hope that you received some encouragement from the trip as well.
I wanted to come up with some questions for you that would help us get to know you a little better. So if you don’t mind telling us:
your favorite childhood memory
your favorite song, movie, book, and food
your favorite story in the Bible … or verse …. or thought
the one thing “you don’t want to be” (only one … so really think about it)
a thought that we would be surprised you have
something that we probably wouldn’t know about you
your favorite thing to do when you have the night off and you get to spend it all alone
the most challenging aspect of being on the field
favorite part and most difficult part of teaching children
your favorite birthday story
I’m just kidding about answering all of those … but pick at least a few things to tell us so we can get to know you a little better.
I really am glad that I’m getting to see you around … it has added even more laughter to my life, and I can never have enough laughter. You are also a great example for me of someone that hungers to know more about their maker. I appreciate the example. What you are doing for the children’s class will have an impact on them for a lifetime. Thanks for your willingness.
Enjoy your birthday my friend!!!
