It’s our girl, Priscilla’s BIRTHDAY today!!!
HappybirthdaytoyouhappybirthdaytoyouhappybirthdaydearPriscillaaaaaaaaaaa! Haaaaapy Birthdaaaaay, to YOU!
(That was meant to be sung, by the way.)
What can I say about Miss P? I have to take this opportunity to say how very blessed I am to know her. She is one of those kind of people who never has an unkind word to say about anyone, always has a heart for others, and will always be up for a movie on a weeknight (after her kids are in bed). You just don’t find friends like that these days. She is thoughtful, funny, real and loyal. She also makes a really fabulous baked chicken thing, and the most wonderful cornbread EVER.
I was hoping to find some childhood pictures to post, but about all I could come up with was a few photos that show the evolution of her hair over the time that I’ve known her. Which, now that I’m becoming educated in black hair care, I have come to understand how LONG it’s taken to get to this point. Here’s what I found.
Now, just for fun . . . can you guess how old Priscilla is? Here are some clues: She was born in the 70’s. I happen to know she had her first crush in 1988, got married in the 90’s and had her first baby in the 00’s. That’s all I’m gonna give you! Guess away, my friends.
Say, would you join me in wishing Priscilla a very happy and BLESSED birthday today? You can find her tweets at @PriscillaShirer, and of course you can leave a message for her here. Let her know how much she means in your life!
Grateful for Priscilla,
P: I love you, girl!
