While it is still September 10th here in the U.S. where I live, it is September 11th in OZ (Australia), where my dear friend Shani Matthews (@Shanijane) (aka Shani) lives and that means... she is now 21 years old.
Shani joined CB on November 14, 2008. I can't remember when I first met up with her in chat but I am so glad I did! Over the years that I have known her, I've been impressed with her wisdom, her love and compassion for others and her commitment to God. She has fought a lot of battles for one so young and yet she continues to put her trust in God and she desires to follow Him no matter what.
Shani and I have laughed together, cried together, prayed together and have just plain done life together as we do life with God. I am so blessed to have come to know Shani. She truly is a blessing to me and others here at CB.
And so Princess Shani, I would like to wish you a very blessed and happy 21st . I wish I were there to help you celebrate but please know I am sending you a great big hug!
