Happy Birthday Carlyn! *does birthday dance*

September 27, 2012

I wanted to wish a very happy birthday to one of my best friends Carlyn!  I have known Carlyn since December 2, 2010 when we began chatting in the chat room on the fan forums.  Carlyn wrangled me into this blog even though I had a bit of trepidation over my abilities to keep up with the blog and complete any of the goals I set for myself.  She has been such a blessing to me as someone who keeps me on track.  I have something of a lazy personality and Carlyn has done a lot to help me make sure I don't just mope around the apartment all day.  Not only that, but she has a truly amazing personality and sense of humor.  Her humor is dry and understated, but I think that's the best!  It's intelligent humor that makes me think and always makes me smile.  That often shines through in her Jon Bear cartoons and I am honored that I was able to inspire parts of her creativity that she shares here.

There is not just one thing I could wish for her today.  So I wish most of all for three things in a broad perspective: I wish for her health, her success and her happiness.  Carlyn and I talk often about how she is doing with school and teaching, as she aspires to be a teacher.  I know that someday soon she will make a great teacher!  She is someone who cares deeply for her family and close friends and that is a quality I really admire.  It's funny how some relatively simple character traits that so many of us take for granted can be the recipe for an extraordinary person.  Carlyn really makes me feel appreciated and knowing that someone genuinely loves you, is... well... how could I ask for anything more?

 Having made such a close friend online is entirely new to me.  I can't thank the internet enough for how it has helped me get in touch with people I would likely have never met just 20 years ago.  Of those I've met, Carlyn is the dearest and closest friend I've made.   It's not just one thing about Carlyn that I love, but the sum of everything each time we talk that makes Carlyn so special to me.  Thank you Carlyn!  Happy Birthday!  Hopefully one of these years soon *next year if I am so blessed* I'll be able to wish you a Happy Birthday in person, give you a present and most of a all a big birthday hug! 

Love, Jon Bear! =)
