Happy Birthday Vicki!

When I married Matt 10 years ago there were a few things I knew for sure. 1. I was never going to live in Canada again

2. I was going to go to Bethany Church

3. I was going to be friends with Dave and Vicki Willcock

My friendship with Vicki wasn't instantaneous. It was a journey. Not cause we didn't like each other because we did (well, I guess I should only answer for me...I did!)  But, we were (and are) opposites in so many ways and trust had to be built.  That doesn't happen in an instant even though I wanted it to. Some things are worth the wait and this friendship is one of them. We had to walk many miles alongside each other and in the sharing of life we became incredible friends. Part of our journey is sharing the births of all 6 of our kids...Somehow it worked out for both of us! We both have a girl, boy, girl family of five  now!

Vicki was my best kept secret for a few years...now I feel like everyone is in on it and they are delighted to know her too!

She's the first person I would call in an emergency and I know she would always be there for me.

She's one of the rare people that truly delights in serving.

She's changed over the last couple of years...stronger, bolder in truth, and more confident walk forward even into the unknown.

I'm so proud to you Vicki. Proud to be your friend. Thankful you are in my life.

Here's some pictures of Vicki loving life with her  kids...love you Vick!
