Today is a special day because it's Courtney's birthday!
Courtney and I have been friends for well over a decade. I met her in Littell Hall during sophomore year (I transferred in) She was cool. Like the kind of cool I've never been. She wrote poetry and wore floral skirts and loved the Beatles. And although her coolness terrified me a little bit, we became friends.I could write a lot of things about Courtney but what I'll say today is that she is one of the best people I know. Remember in the movie Jerry McGuire when Rod Tidwell (Cuba Gooding Jr.) points at Jerry and says "You're My Ambassador of Kwan." It always makes me think of Courtney because she's my Ambassador of Kwan.
Here's why.
Because she always says the right things and never fails to make me feel better about anything. She is truly who she says she is. When I need someone to listen to me whine, she will. When I need to hear the truth, she'll tell it to me. When I need to laugh, she will laugh too. She never judges. She is fiercely loyal. And no matter what stupid things I do in my life or what good happens, she's always my biggest fan. That's Kwan. Courtney, I hope you have a lovely day today!

Happy Birthday Courtney!! Many, many more.

Sounds like you 2 have been great friends for a long time. That's great. I'm thinking of that song - That's What Friends Are For.

You'll always be my ambassador to Kwan, too! xoxo
