this was lil' Kanny!And once again, I'll be turning 7! ha ha ha ha
I was born: July 9th
where: Southern California
And yes: the name on my birth certificate is just KANDEE...not Kandace or anything else, just lil' ol', Kandee Johnson!
I have never received so many wonderful birthday wishes and love, as I have this year...and just to think about it makes my heart want to cry! I am so honored to be a part of your lives, your day, and even take up a little bit if room in your heart! (I won't take up much!)
I remember a birthday I spent alone, in a tiny dark condo, it was the first time I had tried to bake a cake from scratch, and it came out horrible...it was like gooey play-do that was hot...it was very disappointing! I remember feeling kinda sad, I was alone...my sad little attempt to have a little something birthday-ish failed, and I just wished I had someone to celebrate with me. Someone to bring me a cake or just hug me, or just tell me HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
And as I looked at my facebook page, my heart swelled, seeing so many people sending me amazing birthday love and kind, words from your hearts...if only that sad birthday girl, who almost cried looking at her even sadder looking cake...would've known then that hundreds of people would be sending her birthday cheer (i never would've believed it!).
This is such a joy-filled day....not just because it's my birthday...but because I feel so honored, so privileged, so special to be a part of your hearts...hearing people write that they are glad that I was born....(if only you could see or catch one of the tears from my eyes right now)...you have no idea how much those words mean to me! No dream I've had before comes close to comparing to what an honor it is to know that I mean something to each of you, that you've let me come into your life, and that I am able to be your friend...
thank you for celebrating my birthday with me...thank you for loving me....thank you for all your kind and incredible words...thank you for making me, a girl who sat in a dark apartment, years ago, in a horrible relationship, in a city far away from everyone I knew, all alone, with no friends...feel like this is the birthday where I have more friends than I ever dreamed of!
I love you all so dearly! My heart breaks for you when I read or see something you've sent to me...I rejoice when I see you realizing your dream, discovering how beautiful you are, finding out how amazing and one-of-a-kind-special you truly are!
Thank you for making this an AMAZING birthday!!!! Love, candles, and cupcakes.....your Kandee
