TODAY IT IS REBECCA`S BIRTHDAY --HURAY,HURAY,HURAY

Thats how we sing in Denmark, whenever kids are celebrating their birthday.
Rebecca--(not a kid anymore) the sweetest and so much wonderfull artist, celebrates her birthday,today by inviting bloggers around her, to tell a story about a special gift they made someone,-.

Here she is ,eating her cake ,many years ago--so very sweet.
I WISH YOU A BEAUTIFULL DAY ,DEAR REBECCA,HOPING
YOU HAVE  MEMORABLE HOURS, SWEET FRIEND.


As for me telling about a special gift, to someone, I really don`t want to drag one in front of others.
Only want to say ,that whenever friends, or family- feels down -are afraid -or things worce than that-I try being there for them-offering a shoulder, and my ears--I know that has been very importent for me , in situations -feeling very bad-and sad (have been there)-----so I made up with myself, that I so wants, trying to give that back, whenever possibly- to someone in some kind of pain.


Dearest Rebecca  HAPPY BIRTHDAY,  girl.
**************************

This last week I have had so many dear people, wishing me to feel better- from my stress related sickness last week-
I am thankfull from my heart, all dears-----I don`t think I ever met so many kind and lovely people, before.
Thankyou all, --old and new friends--you are so precious to me.
Love and hugs, Dorthe
