My friend Angela and what she means to me

She is a really great friend and she means so much to me!  First of all, she is a great mother.  Her daughter is going to be one in early August and I can’t believe it!  It seems like yesterday, we were having her baby shower.  She is a full-time working mom and she is always working so hard.  She is constantly worried about so many things and constantly doing everything she can for her daughter.  She is not only my friend, she is also my co-worker.  She has been working so hard lately because of deadlines, even working until 2 A.M. the other night.  She is so dedicated and everyone in our office knows they can rely on her.

Not only is she a great mom, she is an awesome friend.  No matter how busy she is, she is always willing to listen to me, complaining about my troubles.  She is patient and always willing to lend an ear.  I don’t have any kids but I have pets and all of them have been sick in one way or another recently.  She is always asking how I’m doing and willing to listen.  She never makes me feel like my problems or complaints are trivial.  She and her husband are also always willing to lend a hand and help us out.  They are such good friends.  They helped us by transporting a dishwasher we bought from a home improvement store after we had to buy one in a hurry after ours broke during the holidays a few years ago.  And last year, met us an hour away at the closest IKEA where we bought bedroom furniture.  I didn’t even ask her at first, she offered when I told her we were looking at furniture from IKEA.  They met us there and drove all of our furniture home in their truck.  She wouldn’t take no for an answer and wasn’t going to hear about us renting a truck.

Another reason, she is such an amazing friend is she surprised me.  No one can ever surprise me but she somehow did it!  She threw me a 30th surprise birthday party earlier this year.  I could not believe it and it brought me to tears when they yelled “surprise”. I really thought we were just going to their house for dinner.  She colluded with my husband and my sister and invited some really great friends and co-workers.  It was such a fun night and made me feel so special.

I really would love to be able to present my awesome friend with this gift, a wonderful weekend getaway to New York City courtesy of Lovable Labels.  She really deserves a weekend away and I would love to make her feel special and surprise her back.  I know she would really enjoy it and appreciate it.  Thanks, Lovable Labels for holding this contest.
