Birthday wishes for someone special

Today is Cousin Shane's birthday! Everyone yell "HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SHANE!"

I can't begin to tell you how much I genuinely like Shane. It's not just because he's family, either! We've always gotten along well, and our parents hung out together a lot when we were kids (his Mom and my Mom are sisters). It's hard to explain, but Shane and I just "get" each other. You may have noticed that I have a sense of humor that can be a little...odd, shall we say? Shane gets it, and he's the same way. Sometimes the littlest things can just set us off...a word that sounds funny, an interesting phrase, a line in a song...and we're giggling like crazy people. (If any of you are still doubting me, remember this?)

It's not always fun and games, and he's helped me through some bad patches by always being there to listen, and I believe he knows I'm always there for him, too. But somehow we always end up laughing again.

Shane is one of the kindest, coolest, most decent guys you'd ever hope to meet, and he's also my partner in crime when it comes to music. Ooooo, the concerts we've been to! I just love the guy to pieces, and I wish you a happy day, Shane! And on this cold December day, I just watched as two bluebirds paid a visit to our bird bath, so it's official: the Bluebirds of Happiness also wish Shane a very happy birthday!

  10. Happy Birthday to Shane!
    It's so cool when you can be best friends with cousins like that. I have 3 that are close in age, and I know for a fact that we gave our parents a few gray hairs because of our "group", growing up!

  11. Isn't it a miracle that you've lived to tell of your escapades?? My cousin and I are 2 months apart, and when I think of the stuff we did...well, if our parents EVER found out, at the time, we would have been grounded for life! Happy birthday, Shane!

  12. Hi Beth!

    Tell Ken I said hello as well and I hope your week is kind!

    Please pass a belated Birthday to Shane from me and my family. :)

    Blessed Be,


I'm funny how, I mean funny like I'm a clown, I amuse you?
