We all have a friend like her.
She's sweeter than cherry pie, but would put her neck on the line to defend you. Even with three kids, she remembers your birthday with a card. She'll call you out of the blue just say to "hi."
She's extremely talented, but spends most of her time chasing after her children and cooking dinner for her husband. She lives a simple existence and has endured life's challenges. She's religious, but it doesn't bother you - because you understand why.
She doesn't have money to spare, but she'll give you the shirt off her back in a heartbeat. She never sounds frazzled or tired, even though she has every right to be.
Her laugh is contagious as is her energy and zest for life.
But for the love of all things sacred in this universe, if she sends you ONE MORE ridiculously long chain-spam email, you may be inclined to pull out your own eyeball.
