      Kelly – wishing you a very Happy Birthday and I’m hoping that your birthday wishes do come true.
      I just wish I could send you worldwide understanding of RA, genuine compassion from all you meet, a day free from pain, the physical ability to be the ‘old Kelly’ for a day (especially so Roo could see that part of you that will always be there) and of course a cure for RA!!
      I am so pleased to read that you are going to try to be kinder to yourself this year.
      I pray that you may experience some respite from your pain in general, but especially today and that the love of your family and friends sustain you today as always.
      Happy Birthday Kelly and may God bless you today on your special day.
      Gentle hugs
      Kathryn

      Happy Birthday Kelly!
      I hope that you have a pain free day. You deserve it. I get your e-mails daily. Sometimes I get them just when I’m feeling that this awful disease is winning in my life. Then your encouragement gives me a boost. I am a christian woman and I know you are too. You are a real warrior encouraging others with your mighty pen.Thank God I have found your site.Keep fighting and encouraging others Kelly. Happy birthday.
      Love, Debra A.

      • Thank you, Debra. It was not pain free like the rest of the last five years, but it was so blessed by people like you stopping by to let me know you’re there!! ♥

      Happy Birthday Kelly. You have done an amazing piece of work. And all as a busy mom and thru chronic pain. I’m telling you, you gave a reverse gift – how can we gift back?

      Hope you have a great birthday, Kelly. I love everything you’ve done with the site, everything you’ve done for us.

      Happy Birthday Kelly, I wish you a peaceful and happy day. Your new wall paper is a fine thing and fits in very nicely. I would have never guessed how it was made. Go take a break, eat a cupcake, and do what makes you feel good :)

      Happy Birthday Kelly! Here’s to the one lady who despite her trials and tribulations with RA has somehow managed to ‘put it all together’ for the rest of us. Thank you kindly, dear lady!

      Hi Kelly, Wishing you a very happy birthday and want to thank you for providing this RA site. It’s everything we RA people need to know and want others to know about.

      Best regards,

      Happy Birthday! While your 5 year journey has been a horrible trial for you it has made the journey for the rest of us substantially less isolated and lonely. Thanks for all you do. Enjoy your special day.

      Happy Birthday Kelly! All the very best to you! Thank you for your work you do! You are amazing & have changed my life! I’m a warrior now & it feels great to stand up for myself & ask questions! Knowledge is power & will beat the pain down!

      Happy Birthday, Kelly! I am constantly amazed at how much you’ve accomplished with this website. I have felt less alone knowing that there are others out there in easy reach who totally understand the ups and downs of this disease. I hope you will have a very special day – you deserve it!

      Happy Birthday Kelly! It looks like that cheesecake was yummy, I’m happy that you have a supportive family that cares for you. It makes all the difference in a patients life, having the support of family and friends.
      You have opened up our lives to see that we don’t struggle alone and that others who share our pain also share our daily issue’s. Your able to make us laugh and cry together with your knowledge and talents. For that I thank you and as I always think while reading your thoughts, I am blessed to have such a talented Warrior by my side.
      Addressing your list of daily items that hurt, I must add to it…door knobs, my right wrist is fused and often arriving home I’m unable to turn the doornob to enter my house, I look down at it, over-extend my fused wrist to turn it and the darn thing doesn’t open, I used to use my shoulder to help push the door but I no longer can due to arthritis setting into that shoulder. I am now trying to finish writing this paragraph and my neck is frozen in place, so lets add keyboards to the list too.
      Happy Birthday Kelly! Your followers love and appreciate you and your hard work.
