Happy Birthday to Lenny!

I hope you all know the wonderful Lenny Lee. If not, I'm about to give you a bunch of reasons you really have to meet him. To know Lenny really is to love him!

  • Lenny loves animals (especially raccoons) and is interested in their care.
  • Lenny loves writing and is willing to take the risk of putting his thoughts on paper and having people read them. To me this = brave!
  • Lenny is always willing to listen and learn. He often posts lessons of what he's learned and these lessons are very helpful!
  • Lenny is full of joy and if you read his posts, you'll always find yourself smiling.
  • Lenny always uses interesting fonts and colours in his posts and reminds me to take more care with my own!
  • Lenny is a fighter. He never gives up. When I told him our family had been hit by one of life's random curve balls, he told me the trick was to keep swinging. He's so right.
  • Lenny IS pure sunshine!

Thank you Lenny for being you and always making me smile! I hope you having the happiest of birthdays ever! Welcome to the world of teenagers - have fun!!!
