They Say it's your Birthday!

Birthdays are good for you!  Statistics show that people who have the most, live the longest!

Week #27 LIFE'S simple pleasures - birthday celebration

Everybody has a birthday, but sadly not everyone celebrates birthdays.  Some woman stop at 29.  Currently, I'm celebrating the 20th anniversary of my 29th birthday!!  Figure it out???

A birthday is a celebration of having arrived so far in life, it is the anniversary of your birth.  Some celebrate big milestones.... or rites of passage... 16 - Sweet... you get your drivers license, 18 - you can vote, you are a legal adult.... 21- you can drink (legally), gamble
What's the best type of gift for a birthday?  Flowers?  A heartfelt note?  Balloons? 
Some people are good at giving their loved ones surprises!  Sadly, some birthdays are a big disappointment!  Everyone celebrates their birth Day differently!
There is still no cure for the common birthday

Sometimes I've wished the mom 'happy birthing day'.  If you really think about it, our moms have given us the gift of life.  Obviously, since we are such tiny wee ones... we often don't think about the day they had to endure.  We just get to CELEBRATE and think our birthday is all about us. 
At this writing.... eighteen years ago... I took a photo of my sweet family of 3.... it was a chilly day for July 2nd....the boys were wearing sweatshirts and baseball caps,  because the next day... we would become a family of 4 and it would forever be the day to celebrate another BIRTH day!
How do you celebrate your loved ones' BIRTH days??
