Yes I realize that at my age the Birthday thing should not be such a big deal. I mean after all my big partying days are long gone and aside from the annual marshmallow peep consumption and some really nice cards and gifts from my good friends, what is there to get excited about? I'll tell you what gets me excited.....that I was born. That I have had the experiences I have had, the friends I have shared my journey with and the love in my life. I know it hasn't always been a bed of roses but nobody's life is....right? To me it's like the Hindi salutation, namaste,which translates to I honor the light within you. Well Happy Birthday means, I honor the day you were born. So here's to me and to all those celebrating Birthdays this year........I honor the day you were born.
Oh and don't forget to eat cake!
