My father, myself, 3 cousins and a very dear friend of mine all share the same birthday, December 1st. The joke was that I was born on my dad’s birthday so I was his birthday gift. LOL The funny thing was my dad was always the one to let everyone know his birthday. It was more of a joke than anything, but it was funny. Although we shared the same birthday most of our birthday celebrations were geared around him. Not to say I didn’t have any birthday parties for me, but the majority of them seemed to be more for him. I remember a few of my “parties” but they were when I was a child. I have never had one as an adult, which is fine.
So my father passed away 5/11/08 after a very long illness. Last year my birthday was a bit difficult so I really
Happy almost my birthday… and it so doesn’t seem like my birthday. It doesn’t feel like it is my birthday, or even close to my birthday. It feels like it is just another day, nothing special that is for sure. In fact I think I will just stop “marking” birthday anyway… I mean what good is it anyway.... except to mark that you have gotten another year older. And let’s face it what fun can that be, another year older?
So no more almost birthdays or birthdays for me... what for??? But hey, we can always celebrate your birthdays, because I love to do that!! I am good at that! I can decorate and bake and plan things for other people really well!!
