Happy, happy birthday to the fabulous CDC! Candace is my beloved friend of 15+ years and in addition to being a terrific support system and always cracking me up with her keen sense of humor, these are some other things I love about her: she has impeccable taste in music and is an insanely good singer, she is frequently the life of any party because people are naturally drawn to her infectious spirit, she is an enthusiastic learner, she's a wonderful mother who has beautiful and kind children, she stills thinks that her husband of many years is the funniest person ever, she loves to eat but also loves to exercise, she is passionate about her devotion to the Lord... the list could go on and on. So here's to you my old friend -- may this new year of your life bring you many blessings and abundant joy. I love you!
