One year ago today, I made my first post here at Passions. Although I saw that this was a special place, I had no idea how all of you would touch my life. I had been reading here for about a week, and my muse came back to me after 8 long years of being buried under the debris of other things lost with childhood. I wasn't the perfect poet then (nor am I now)... I'm not even sure if you could call that stuff poetry! Nonetheless, you were all there, encouraging me to write. My parents and friends don't really approve of this "fool's pastime", but I still write... because of you. You all also offered your comfort and advice in other aspects of my life. Most of you will never know how much you helped me through the hard times, and if I was a better poet, I could put it into verse... but the way things are now, I can only say this: each story and each poem that came from me only exists because of you all. If I ever refine my art so that it amounts to something someday, it is only because I made my first post here a year ago from today. I thank you all from the bottom of my heart, and I am
saddened that this is the only way I can repay you at this time. May God bless you all as you have blessed me.

Happy birthday, Erica! Doesn't that first post seem ages and ages ago? Glad to hear that Passions was what wakened the sleeping muse for you, because you do have a talent, and I hope you keep that up in the future. I've really enjoyed reading your work. Congrats on the one year...may there be many more to come!   ((((hugs))))

Happy Birthday, my lovebug.
You are not alone in your feelings of how the poetry forums have inspired you and added a new dimension to your life. The only thing you left out here is the fact that you have also inspired others, me for one. You came along with an enthusiasm for learning and a willingness to open your heart, which is unusual for someone your age, and gave me a new exhileration and a yearning to write.
Thank you, young poet, for all you have done, and have a very happy day
Love and hugs

Erica, I'd like to Congratulate you on your first year with Passions and wish you many many more!

Like you, I had no idea when I first started just how important Passions and her family were going to be to me

And uh, Nan, since when do lovebugs chirp?

     Happy Passions Birthday LoveBug!      

I've been so fortunate to work along your side Erica ... it's been my pleasure getting to know both you and Krista. You are two of the finest young ladies with true spirit and dedication that I have ever met. Teen keeps ticking right along with you both, and I'm so very lucky to be a part of it with you.

Much love to you Erica, and Happy Birthday!

Best wishes,
