In Japan it is almost 10:00 PM. Amy had plans for dinner and a night out with friends. She is probably enjoying herself right now. It is her roommate's birthday as well, so they are celebrating together, getting all dressed up for a night on the town! It helps that it's a Friday night and tomorrow is a day off. They can sleep in after a night of partying.
Amy has ridden a roller coaster of emotions this year--ups and downs, incredible highs and devastating lows. She has weathered it well, thanks in large part to the friends that surround her, lovingly shoring her up every step of the way. These are the friends she celebrates with tonight. They have a lot to celebrate: birthdays, friendship and just being together.
Thank you to these friends of Amy for being there for her when we could not be there with her physically. And thank you to Amy, beautiful daughter and wonderful friend! Many happy returns! I can't wait to celebrate with you!
