Sweet & Sassy Sonya – Birthday Fancy Pants of the Day!

Posted on August 23, 2007 in the Real Beauty category

More Sweet and Sassy?! You betcha – horray for me and my 2 readers! Here’s another lovely lady – but first….of course….an overview of my book: Real Beauty Book Overview

Now on with the dancing girls….or girl…..

Sonya is beautiful because she is…MASTERFULLY CREATIVE & INNOVATIVE. I’ve never met anyone who embraces life with as much imagination, gusto and expertise as Sonya. She’s like an ornate wrapped package – with all the trimmings. When she decides to do something – host a party, go on vacation, or decorate her house for the holidays – she doesn’t forget any details. In fact, she puts so much thought and care into everything, that you could take a picture of any of her parties and submit them to a magazine. Even her barbeques are noteworthy events.

I love Sonya for so many reasons. She is generous and thoughtful. Sonya goes out of her way to help people – FAR out of her way. She is loyal and caring. She is fun, fun, fun, too. I have never had less than a “total blast” with her. Even when we worked together 10 years ago – the job stunk, but Sonya was always a breath of fresh air. I’d start out angry, but by the time we were done chatting, I’d be laughing and happy to be at a lame job.

Because she is a master at everything she does, she inspires me to do new things. Because of Sonya, I’ve made jewelry (one of my crafts, now), sushi, and even sung Karaoke when I’m at her lovely home. And she’s a great teacher and influence. She doesn’t act like a know-it-all, either. She just loves to learn new things and share her knowledge. I always feel like my world has expanded after spending time with her. She doesn’t just preach – she gets people involved and enthused about what is happening.

Sonya leaves me breathless with her energy and her new ideas. She’s always cooking up some kind of adventure. And she has a steel trap for a mind. She doesn’t forget ANYTHIHG. She remembers interesting and pertinent things to tell me – like I said, she is most thoughtful. I can tell she cares about me and everyone else in her life.

Sonya is a good sport, too. I’ve not seen her unhappy for too long. She just kind of gauges what is happening, readjusts her course and sails onward. A group of us were out one night and ended up at a friend of friend’s house. Sonya walked in and a very big dog approached her. When she bent down to pet the beast, the dog fell on her foot. It was a BIG dog. Sonya didn’t get up right away, so I knew something was wrong. Turns out, Sonya had to have physical therapy and work on her foot. But she never said anything to our friend. She didn’t want to make a big deal that some stranger’s monster tried to flatten her. But she’s like that – she just moves ahead. There’s no time for sulking!

Happy birthday, my friend – thank you for sharing your wondrous life with me – you young whipper-snapper fancy-pants! I love you.

    You got it all wrong Sonya is Beautiful because she likes ‘Apocalypse Now’

    You are such a special friend! I so enjoyed making smores with you in the backyard last night and opening my gifts. You are too kind with flowers, wine, gift certificates the pretty bag which you probably made by hand. I love them all but not as much as I love you. Thank you for being so special.

    You’re right about Sonja. She is so organized and giving. Thanks, S. for helping Kristin organize her wedding when her mom was not there to guide her. I owe you big time.

    Kristin’s mom, Gina
