I just wanted to quietly say this meant so much to me. Re-reading these brings me 60 flavors of joy. I sneak back every now and then for extra smiles or to fade out any blueness that appears. This is such a wonderful community… sigh.

You’re an awesome big sister, and a great friend. It’s been nice seeing a little more of you lately, and I can’t wait to spend more time soon. As far as I can remember, you’ve always been there for me when I’ve needed you, and your creativity, compassion, enthusiasm, and wit have been a big inspiration.
In short: You rock!

I looked and found this wonderful image on a flicker site so I really wanted to share it with you. Then I fell asleep and forgot to send it yesterday. 5 years ago
Thanks for sharing your life and your enthusiasm and your gumption with all of us here on 43-things. You’ve helped me a lot in this past year. I’m glad to read that your birthday was a good day, and may the coming year be wonderfully special as well.

To my special RU
I hope today brings you all the love and joy that can be stuffed into a life. That the bright cheeriness of the springtime around you will overflow in your heart. That you will know the joy and peace that only God can give and you will completely understand His overwhelming love for you;
and you will have the most fabulous Birthday that anyone could ever have.

I’ve cheered Ru off and on here for the past two years, but it was her beautiful card that she sent as part of last year’s 43Things card exchange that triggered my own creative juices and earned her my crush haiku of the week. Here are my wishes for her for the coming year:
May her creative muses inspire her daily, whether if be for haiku on Fridays or finger painting on Mondays. May she find the motivation she needs to declutter her house, because then spring cleaning would be easier. And may she earn the funds she needs to fix her camera, so that she can post more pictures to flickr, display photos in a public place and possibly get a picture published by Jones soda.
And a birthday haiku:

I always think of you as a glamorous art deco/ nouveau woman – straight out of a Mucha print or something.
I hope your birthday is wonderful and filled with all sorts of delights. But how could it help but be? That’s how you seem to live every day.

Above is the quote the robots gave for this page opening, and it seems very Ru-esque.
