Here is a poem that comes close to expressing how I feel about you as a dear friend. But unfortunately I am a writer and not a poet so it will have to do. You are amazing and I hope you have a wonderful birthday! Oh and the picture of Ian was just way to sexy to pass up. Its the eyes. He has killer baby blues. Enjoy your birthday!

A best friend
is always there,
whether you need advice,
or a pep talk,
or even a shoulder to cry on.
A best friend
listens with her heart
and is always honest with you,
even though the truth
may not be
what you want to hear.
A best friend
knows all your secrets,
understands your fears
shares your dreams.
A best friend
never stops believing in you
even if you give up
on yourself.
you are
that kind of friend
to me.
And no matter what happens,
you always will be.
You are my best friend....
my forever friend.

- Renee Duvall

Love Tabby

Happy Birthday Brenda girl. I hope you have a great one. Words can't even begin to say what you mean to me. You have lifted me up and dusted me off so many times. I can't count how many time you have listened to me cry on your shoulder and never once turned away. I couldn't ask for a better friends. In my eyes you are a true angel. Thank you so much for being part of my life. Hugs and lots of love!

Oooh Tabby....your words literally brought tears to my eyes--not to mention that beautiful poem, and the beyond sexy picture of Ian. Besides Mel and Kal, Ian is my favorite vampire!
You know, I'm so blessed to have you in my life. And to have gone through this crazy writing journey with you...well I have no words to express just how thankful I am. Though thousands of miles may seperate us, you are with me always in my heart. Believe me, it is I who couldn't ask for a better friend, and it is you who are the true angel. Hugs and lots of love to you.
Mike, thank you so much for your wishes. I'm so thankful for you too, Mika. You have given me the most wonderous of gifts--your reactions to my story have LITERALLY given me the confidence to move forward and get my butt in gear and get ready to query--I think you said it best: QUERY THE HELL OUT OF THIS MS! For that alone I can never thank you enough.

Happy happy birthday! May this year be filled with good health, happiness and many writing successes.
Regarding Ian: he's the main reason I'm watching TVD. I can't understand why Elena picked Stefan. And I take it a bit more personally coz Elena is my real name lol
