Dept. of Truly Lovely People

Late In The Day Birthday Wishes

I am so very lucky to know all of you out there in journal land, and two of the people I am particularly happy to have met celebrated birthdays today. What with cat purgatory, that almost slipped by me. 

[personal profile] a_phoenixdragon  is an adventurer in life, taking on journeys, challenges, setbacks and battles that many people would find impossible to undertake or survive. She is also one of those remarkable humans who can find beauty and good in the tiny corners where many of us would forget to look for them. She is creative, funny, a lover of knowledge, a woman who fights for the people she loves, and somehow finds time to create; she has never let her muse too far out of her sight, even if there are times she thinks the creature has escaped. I am so lucky to have met her in RL, and can report that she is one of the sweetest people I've ever met. And she talks more than I do - which is so cool! My dear, I hope your loved ones showed you how much they love you, and gave you a very good birthday. And may the coming year be better than you could dream of!

[personal profile] editrx  is another adventurer who has dealt with challenge, setback, and the fuckwittery of the world with more bravery and determination than I could ever imagine. In the midst of all that, she's generous with her time. She's funny, fannish, extremely good at what she does, and if I were the kind of fairy godmother I wish I could be, I would wave a wand and make sure that this happy birthday wish was accompanied by more than friendship and respect. May the coming year be thrice as good as you want it to be!

But wait, there's more!

The remarkable 
[personal profile] elisi , who celebrates on Oct. 22, is someone for whom I have so much respect that it's impossible to truly describe it. She writes fiction and non-fiction, meta and life observations, while raising a family of remarkable young women, and staying in touch with the world with intelligence and grace. Thank you for being you, and thank you for broadening my world in so very many ways, all through your love of a madman with a box, one that's bigger on the inside. If I am ever on your side of the Atlantic, it would be my honor to take you out for a drink of whatever might be your pleasure. Until then? Continue being awesome, and have a fantastic birthday.

Awwww. ♥ ♥ ♥

Never know what to say, but I am ridiculously grateful to fandom for bringing me people like you.

And I will totally take you up on that offer! *points to icon*

all through your love of a madman with a box, one that's bigger on the inside.

You don't have to say anything - it's my pleasure to know you, and to wish you a happy birthday.

Wine it is! Now I just have to win that lottery ....

my daughter-in-law-to-be

Oh, hurrah! (As a sidebar to the sidebar; when did she pop the question to the daughter-in-law-to-be?)

Reply to sidebar: It's not properly official in that sense, but that's the easiest way to think of it. <3

Understood; I'm in "daughter-in-law" territory myself, which shows you where my head is at these days.

Ahhh, you always make me blush, dearest! I never know quite what to do with your high praise and kind words (Azzie also does this to me quite often...leaves me flustered and not sure of what to say, lol!) But I can agree...gods, I can talk the hind leg offa donkey! *CACKLES* If you could get a word in edgewise, maybe we could have competed!

It was a marvelous day. And I held everyone dear in my heart throughout the day. My little family - and my family here. Thank you for this. I wish I had adequate words to express that thanks and the love I have for you. Thank you, sweetie.

*CUDDLES*
