My Bestie’s Birthday


Today is May 19th. I know at least 4 people who have birthdays today. One I’m simply connected to on Instagram @gamerbabe356 , 2 others I have been attached to romantically, but the last one, happening to be the first one that I knew, is my best friend. We met some time in 1991 or 1992 and became friends towards the end of 1992. Like any personal relationship, we’ve seen good times and some rough ones, but the better times have always reigned. Her name is Pamela, and for many years now I’ve called her my best friend, mi mejor amiga. Pamela has been an inspiration often, and like any true friend, kicks my butt into gear when I need it. She’s strong, smart, resourceful, kind, loving, and so much more. Pamela has been my muse, my inspiration, my confidant, and forever a shining light in my life. She credits me with pushing her to go to school. After she did that, Pamela opened her own business and has been successful in it for years. Hopefully the health emergency hasn’t caused irreparable damage to her venture.

Today is a mid-milestone birthday. We celebrated my birthday 2 months ago. Due to the health crisis our plans were curtailed; it was a wonderful day nonetheless since I got to spend it with my best friend. This evening we have plans to share some time together, and once again It doesn’t matter what we’re doing; it’s that we’re doing it together.

happy birthday my friend
