I have a birthday this week. I’m not dreading it, but I do wonder, ‘at what point are birthdays redundant’? Cake, candles, gifts, cards, friends and family. Repeat. I could live without the cake, I could forgo the candles and maybe even the gifts (I did say maybe!). BUT, I would be very sad if cards were not in the mail this week. I might even cry if there were no Facebook posts. I would hate a silent phone on my birthday. I love hearing from old friends! I love the birthday song voice mail from my nephew–every year! I’m having a small family party and I’m very excited about a day for ME!
How about you? Is it a big family celebration? A night out on the town? A quiet moment with the ones you love? Do you embrace growing old, gracefully? Are you young enough to just love everything about the day?
So, it’s my birthday on Friday. Feel free to send a card, a gift, a cake or just leave a post or comment. I am more sentimental then I want to admit!
