As you may or may not know, yesterday was Hermione Jean Granger Weasley’s (#RonandHermione4life) 36th birthday.
Seriously, the girl is incredible. She’s as loyal as the chickens that wake me up every morning at 5:06. She’s resistant to peer pressure, and not afraid to do what’s right. She’s a true blue BFF in calm and stormy weather, even when it means sacrificing EVERYTHING she holds dear. (i.e. her parents’ awareness of her existence, acceptance from the boy she’s loved since she was 14, school work, etc.)
I would go so far as to say that Hermione is one of the greatest fictional heroines of all time. In fact, fiction aside, I would place her amongst the ranks of Joan of Ark, Madam Curie, and Corrie ten Boom. (Random, I know. Just a few outstanding women.) Hermione is everything I want to be: loyal, selfless, kind, wise, resourceful, organized, prepared…
So, HB to one of my all-time faves! I honestly aspire to be more like Hermione.
