Today is joette's birthday.
I learn so much from Joette each day.
She is kind of different from me in a lot of ways.
She doesn't like confrontation. She likes to cook. She likes to take pictures of train graffiti. She can play the piano perfectly. She doesn't like to debate. Every person she meets she will trust until they hurt her. She is always kind to people no matter how hard her day is. It is usually her family who really knows how hard of a day she is having :)
My greatest memories of Joette are probably our long car rides together. Everything in a healthy sisterhood gets accomplished on our car rides. We talk about life, God, trials, and family. We listen to really really good music and snack on almonds.
We grew up sharing a room off and on...and sometimes the same bed. We were either fighting or laughing. Typical. Joette was a neat freak. I was a slob. But we have always laughed about the same thing. Joette and I get each other's humor and so...it is so entertaining to be with her. Being with Joette is the best "home" feeling there is.
Joette is so dynamic. She has so many twists and turns to her that she must be confusing to some. She is overly talented in so many areas that sometimes people label her too quickly and never get the chance to really enter into the real Joette- and see who she really is.
On her facebook page Joette posted this video. It really reflects her testimony. And it really just reflects Joette - a person who is full of hope and is full of love for her Savior Jesus Christ. I love this video. I love you Joette. Happy Birthday my best friend.
