(Rather than thinking of this as a belated birthday wish, think of it as merely a way to extend the celebration that is our beloved Carly.)

My dearest Carly,

You are one of my favorites, for so many reasons. Your wit, your compassion, your unflinching honesty, your writing, your beauty, inside and out. . . the list could go on and on. You are a bright spot in so many people's lives, and I don't think you're quite aware of how. . . awesome you are. You truly are one of the best people I know and I'm the better for having you as my friend.

You are loved, and I know that I'm not alone in wishing you the best for the next year.

Love,

Lee

So, my birthday is the week before Christmas, and I'm the oldest child. Which means my birthdays have pretty much always been backseated and underattended. Today was no exception; I had to work a ten hour shift at my horrible job, which should be illegal or something, seriously, and my family celebrated with Chinese takeout.

And then all of this was brought to my attention, and, I. Just. It is absolutely shocking to know that so many people that I admire and adore would go through all this trouble just for me. And, as always, I feel so humbled and blessed and surprised that I have such kind and thoughtful and engaging and wonderful friends, and I'm not sure what I've done to deserve you but thank you.

And when I stop crying, I intend to leave more detailed and coherent responses to all the wonderful that you've brought me today, but right now. Um. Yeah. Tears.

You are one of the top ten people I most want to meet in the flesh someday!

Your fiction never fails to enthrall me, you have a gift for making words come alive.

You are one of the best people I kniow and I hope this birthday is everything you deserve.

So much love.
