HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GABRIEL BYRNE!
A bunch of Byrneholics contributed pictures and birthday wishes for a book that is being published and will be sent to Mr. Byrne, thanks to his agent. His birthday is May 12 and it is not clear when he will receive the book (he is traveling and the book is going to Dublin), but whenever it gets to him, he will feel the love!
Byrneholics from all over the world provided pictures of themselves and their cities and countries, along with heart-felt messages. The book includes best wishes for a wonderful birthday and a beautiful outpouring of appreciation and love.
While we cannot see the book itself (it is a print book and is on its way to Mr. Byrne now, along with several letters), I wanted to share as much of it as possible with this video.
The video includes pictures of Gabriel that are not in the book–they are for us! And I included short excerpts from the messages in the book where I could. Please do not feel bad if your words are not in the video. They are in the book or in your letters, fear not!
Thank you to all who contributed to this birthday book project! Your words and images are truly inspirational!
I will share with you my message to him in the book on this, the occasion of his birthday:
Happy Birthday, Gabriel/Mr. B./Mr. Byrne!
My mother used to say that you did not need to have a party to celebrate your birthday. You just needed balloons, flowers, presents, birthday cake, candles, champagne, friends and family, and that special someone.
“But Mom!” I would respond plaintively. “If you have all that, then you have a PARTY!”
And she would smile and say “I guess you are right, honey. Happy Birthday!”
I hope you have enjoyed your party in a book from your friends and fans at Byrneholics, where we are inspired, enlightened, encouraged, amazed, delighted, and just a little intoxicated by — YOU!
Happiest of Birthdays to you!

Happy Birthday, Gabriel!
