Happy Birthday! I hope yesterday's happiness lingers and you continue to be blissed out... today, and for another 40-ish weeks, and a lifetime afterwards.

Many happy returns, Kate!!

agh, how many times have i missed your birthday, how any times? and you told me last week, too, when i asked because i never remember. i'm such a loser. esp after you were so kind last week when i was almost in a coma. (exaggerating)

i love you kater, happy birthday. may this year bring you all the wishes you've ever wanted.

Wow, that's quite a cast of characters with whom you share your birthday - good and bad!

I think we all know what we're wishing for you as a belated birthday present but we can't tell you since secret birthday wishes hold more power! But I suspect you might be able to guess ;).

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Wait a minute - we share birthdays with Sarah the Palin? I shudder.

Thank you for the birthday wishes, and here's a "happy birthday" in return for you!

I loved your words about healing - so very true and right.
