It really hacks me off to hear someone refer to their birthday as, “JUST ANOTHER DAY!” It isn’t just another day, it’s your birthday for Pete’s sake! It was the day that your mother went through the valley of the shadow of death, delivering you into this world. So, celebrate it!
Okay, so others don’t go gaga and gift you with goodies. So what if no one bakes you a cake. So what if he/she forgets. You remembered it, didn’t you? Thus, create your own birthday, day. Go and do something special! Buy someone else a little something and take it to them. Go shopping!!!! Yes, and eat wherever you want and what you want. Even if it’s a McDonalds dollar meal! If it’s what you like then go for it.
No one to give you a hug on your birthday? Well, find someone and give them a hug! There is always a puppy dog that will be delighted in getting a hug. Then, if your mother is still alive why don’t you bring her or send her a bunch of flowers? Remember, it was her that gave you this day!
P.S. I wonder who was Pete and why we have to do things for “PETE’S SAKE!”
