Birthdays are so important. On our birthdays we celebrate being alive. On our birthdays people can say to us, “Thank you for being!” Birthday presents are signs of our families’ and friends’ joy that we are part of their lives. Little children often look forward to their birthdays for months. Their birthdays are their big days, when they are the center of attention and all their friends come to celebrate.

We should never forget our birthdays or the birthdays of those who are close to us. Birthdays keep us childlike. They remind us that what is important is not what we do or accomplish, not what we have or who we know, but that we are, here and now. On birthdays let us be grateful for the gift of life.

Emphasis mine

My birthday was this week (February 11), but this year I’m stretching it.  I’m celebrating until the first week in March.

I had calls from 4 people on my birthday, cards from another 3, 3 gifts yesterday and promises of more to come, cheesecake 2 nights running and 1/2 still there.   Life is good.  😉
