If you really like me, BUTTON, you won't read this 'til i'm DONE!

Monday, December 29, 2014

So tomorrow is my very first Spark Friend's birthday.

I don't know if you all remember your very first Spark Friend, but I do...only because I was so tentative about the whole thing- I had been here once before, and felt sort of sheepish about coming back, but she was so friendly, and so kind, and so heart-felt, and cautious, and fun, and sweet, and...(insert all good adjectives here). She made me feel welcome, dare I say- loved, when I needed some love the absolute most!

If you're reading this, and you know her, please share why you love her so much (because if you know her, you MUST love her), and if you're reading this, and you don't...well, you should. Wish her a happy birthday anyway!

Happy Birthday, dear Carolyn. If anyone deserves a fantabulous birthday, it's you, Bunk Buddy!!

    I'm late..I'm late....for a very important date...I'm late......I did indeed express my love of BP's friendship to her on her special day. However, I did not know there was a LOVE for BUTTON blog happening. Shay, you are very sweet to have done this.

    Carolyn, you are a wonderful friend, a very intuitive and loving woman. I am grateful for our friendship. I read many a post of yours and you ALWAYS speak with such wisdom. You also write magnificent true stories. have become a FAMOUS VLOGGER and you are just to damn cute! Love ya! Muwahhhhhh! emoticon

    I am just so overwhelmed by joy today at reading these sweet comments wishing me a happy birthday! I promise you that I did not make my video blog the other day as a way to get all these wonderful goodies, comments, and blogs I've been blessed with since, but I am SO HAPPY to bask in this feeling, as my birthday was rarely celebrated when I was little (I'm over it, though), and as I said in my vlog, never celebrated here in Japan. So I have to say that this is really the BEST birthday ever, thanks to all you wonderful friends. And Sparky, this was one of the most thoughtful things anyone has ever done for me!

    I command all of you to tell me when your birthday is! I want to shower you with the same love I've received in the past day or two, multiplied by a hundred!!

    And ... wasn't all our first Spark friend that Sparkguy?!?! Hahaha. But my 1st real Spark friend ... that person is still there ... sort of...and still a friend yeahh.

    The Button Lady is one of the latest Spark Friends I have made. I think ... in the last couple of months? But in that time that I have gotten to know her - what I have seen is someone kind and compassionate, who has challenges and frustration like all of us - though the grace with which she handles them is amazing. Then again, she has a impish side too ... firemen and all that. *wink, wink*

    Happy 58th Carolyn. I'm glad we're friends and are getting to know one another.

    And nice blog Shay ... very nice. You did good Dino Spark. :-)

    I LOVE Bean's comment.... "Button is like a disco ball, her awesomeness radiates everywhere"!!! YES!!!!

    Carolyn is a most amazing friend with a bubbly personality & a gift of words like no other. She always knows what to say to lift you up. Her vlogs bring a smile to my face every time I see her and here that cute Southern accent. Her blogs have made me laugh, cry and think.

    We all love our Button & I'm very thankful for her (and you too, Sparky!)

    I don't remember my first sparkbuddy for shame, but I do know the wunderbar BUTTON emoticon

    I love BP because:

    she is inspiring, funny, kind, very giving of her time, understanding, uber supportive, a gentle soul, thoughtful. My sparkworld definitely got much bigger as not only did I gain the awesomeness that is BP but she also brought along a few friends, that I'm also getting to know, so she is someone who opens up new horizons and is always happy to share. Button is like a disco ball, her awesomeness radiates everywhere. When I was a kid my fave show was Button Moon, and every day with Button is like going back to Button Moon for adventures all over again emoticon

    "We're off to Button Mooooooon, We've followed Mr Spooooooon" emoticon emoticon

    Could go on forever, but I agree with you, to know her is to love her emoticon emoticon

    Happy Birthday lovely Button emoticon

    That first SparkFriend is special, for sure. My first one still is a good friend. We have never met in person but I'm sure we would be like comfortable old buddies if we ever did. Congratulations on maintaining your special connection.
