An ode to my critique partner

I thought I was finished writing the chapters of my manuscript. Enter Beth at our last critique meeting. With a smile on her face (she always has one of those) she proceeded to tell me that I wasn't done. I need one last chapter and an epilogue. Fast forward to last night. Up until all hours writing that last chapter and the epilogue. Still need to revise it, but I realized that she was rrrr, um,ririri, um, right. It is better. There were some things I hadn't taken care of. Some ends that needed tying up. As I wrote and conversed with her, because C had the guys over, and she was trying to pull an all nighter. I couldn't remember if I had told Beth about her being, well, you know. So you were and I'm saying it to the world. It is better. Or it will be with some touching up. Boy am I glad I listen to you. Thanks for ALWAYS being there. :)
