I know it is a wee bit late in the day to be doing this, but I did wish the birthday girl in the morning in the regular way, the way most people wish most other people. But Chaya is one of those friends who is special enough for me to wish here in my own way.
I think there are very few people in this world who are quite as comfortable with themselves as Chaya is. Who manage to put forth a bright, cheerful face all the time. Who also spread the good cheer around them.
On a lighter note, there are very few people who are quite as obsessed with penguins. Or quite as talented at making random works of art, such as spider shaped bookmarks. Who own such an extensive wardrobe, most of which comprises of stuff their moms bought them.
Happy birthday, girl. May you always get your heart's desire. Love you.
