Today is a very special day to me and my partner in crime Brandon. It is the day of Brandon Clayton’s birth!!! I want to take the time to thank Brandon for the amazing friend he has been to a lot of us and especially me :).
How do you describe someone like Brandon? … I would say generous.
He is generous with his time. He will sit down with you and drop everything he is doing to listen and be there for you. I am sure everyone who knows him can recall a time when they have been going though something and Brandon is there to listen and not JUDGE (very important).
He is also generous with his things. Last year for Christmas Brandon’s church did a “gift” offering where the people in his church listed what their needs were. In return, if you had the item listed you could donate to that person in greater need of it.
Many people know how much Brandon LOVES bicycles and going on bike rides in the sunny San Diego weather and raising havoc riding the dark streets during Critical Mass. What not many people know is that last Christmas Brandon gave away his Love, his bike, to a refugee man in his church to ride to work everyday. He even converted it from a fixie to a gear bike for the guy. :) (Like I said very generous).
Now it is a whole year later with no bicycle rides and I have had the time to save up I want to honor Brandon’s generous heart and loving acts. I found a fun company that allows the customer to build their own bike called Republic Bike. They have a 3D bike shop and you choose what colors you want, they send you pieces of the bike partly assembled, and you have fun putting the rest of your personal bike together. http://www.republicbike.com/default.asp
So, Brandon you have a brand new bicycle and Love to call your own just waiting to be created and sent to you!
Happy Birthday Brandon the love of my life and my best friend!
See you riding the streets of San Diego!
