I can’t believe it .. I am still in shock. I have had my own little ‘Sixteen Candles’ moment today. Not only did my husband forget, but so did my Mother. My husband says it my own fault I should have advertised it better. In all fairness I normally have a party, a dinner or a gathering by the pool and there was none scheduled for this year hence why he forgot. Poor dude!!
(My mother has remembered the last 35 so I’ll excuse her.)
Is it wrong of me to still look forward to birthdays and expect presents, ballons and parties? No I don’t think so! I think I could be celebrating my 90th and still expect presents. Beautifully brightly wrapped presents overflowing with ribbons and bows.
For me birthdays are the special day that God chose to bless the world with me and you. So yes I am one of those annoying birthday persons that would remember to ring you on your birthday and sing ‘Happy Birthday’ albeit a little off key. Even if I know that you do not particularly care for birthdays. Sorry.
Always a child at heart I still envision the perfect birthday to be a whirlwind of ballons, streamers, icecream, cake, lots of food to eat and now that I am older really cool exotic drinks all shared with tons and tons of family and friends. And most of all overflowing with love.
But hey I may not have the party or the presents, but God knows I have the love
Thanks for all the well wishing from you my blog friends.
Have a great day as I sing
Happy Birthday to me
Happy Birhtday to me
I think I’ll mix up one of those exotic drinks right now.
