A very Special Card

I have a very special person in my life and I recently made this card for her, for her birthday, as a way of saying "I love you", and to say thanks! Her and her husband opened their home to us several months ago when we came home from Germany. We were only suppose to be home for about 2 weeks and it ended up turning into 6 weeks (long story) but none-the-less she let us basically live with them. It's a lot to take in a family of 4 and to make us feel soooo at home. She had a room done up for the kids, a room for Rodney and I and basically said "what's mine is yours". She is family Rod's cousin but she's soooo much more then that and I love her with all my heart and I am sooooooo glad that we grew so close and became the best of friends!

That nearly brought me to tears! What a wonderful story of family and friendship and love and this card truly says it all in your feelings for your very dear friend. Just wonderful. I too am an AF wife (thought we would retire after 20, but...) so I hope your journey after the military is going well.
Great card and I know she'll treasure this.
