I'd like to recognize a very special mdc mama, who just so happened to get me started in cloth diapering a year ago, and who constantly shows her KINDNESS, LOVE, and JOY for life in the things she does.<br><br>
I recently got a box from her, to my surprise. It was filled with OC and sherpa prefolds and other wonderful things that I can't afford to buy for ds. We just lost our house and are living with our ils, so I have been very depressed about not being able to buy things that I need or want. Times are tough right now, and Claire ONCE AGAIN gave me a much needed pick-me-up with her thoughtful gift.<br><br>
I know Spark's wonderfulness has affected many of you, too. Please weigh in and tell her how much you appreciate her.<br><br>

Claire is a wonderful, kind, sweet, thoughtful, happy person. She has done a couple of very sweet things for me, just for no reason! I didn't even think she had any idea who I was, when she contacted me and let me know that she had a gift for me. She sent me not one, but TWO beautiful tester wool soakers, one cable-knit and one merino. She chose them just for me, and they fit beautifully and we just loved them. (well, they did fit - now my big chunker has grown out of them but we are saving them for the next babe! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">) Then, she and some of her IRL friends got together and decided to fairy someone all together, like a fairy explosion :LOL and for some reason they chose me. I received...I can't even remember now, it must have been 5-6 packages in the mail of prefolds of every shape, size, and color since we are an all-PF family. They literally doubled the size of my stash with their random act of kindness, and I use them all every single day. So, as you can tell, I like Claire very much. Everyone should be so lucky to have someone like Claire touch their lives. Honestly, it sounds cheesy but it's true. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

I love love love love love Claire. She is my fave MDC mama, hands down, and has managed to offer consistent bursts of joyous feelings of sisterhood despite thousands of miles and the fact that we've never gotten to meet in person (yet!). I adore her and wish I could be more like her! She cracks me up, yet she is wise and altogether sweet.Yay....Spark!!!!!!!!!<br><br>
BTW, where the heck are you, Claire??? Come on and organize the AIO Trim-off competition now that I have all the pics uploaded on the net for you to nab!

We "met" on the ttc while breastfeeding thread. Then we actually did get to meet once in real life. What a super, supportive, thoughtful, kind, beautiful person she is.<br><br>
It just sucks that she doesn't live close IRL.<br><br>
A total Claire-lover,

Another Spark lover here! I read every post by her because I know that it will be funny, inciteful and warm. I would love to meet her IRL. I know that she must be as fantastic as she is here. Don't worry Claire, I'm not gonna stalk you <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> .

Claire has brightened many a day for me. From random songs, to an extra gift added to a purchase, to a fairy'd diaper...to some funny PMs. I'd love to meet Spark in real life. Sometimes a name just fits, and I bet she's a firecracker. :LOL Where she gets all the energy for her out-of-home jobs, her in-home-jobs and her family I'll never know. But I truly have every confidence she's balancing it to perfection.<br><br>
Heck, I wanna be like her when I grow up. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

I'm bumping to make sure Claire sees this, since it's not in Diapering anymore. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

WOW! You guys, thank you SO SO SO much! I'm sucha fan of all of you, too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/bow.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="bow"> I love you gals!<br><br>
So, Rachel, that box of goodies wasn't just from me! All those OC PFs I was selling on the TP and a MDC mama who wanted to know that you were loved and supported bought them to fairy to you! I just figured since a box was going to you anyway, I might as well tuck in some goodies, too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Much love to you, Rachel! And, the rest of you wonderful MDC mamas!
