Birthdays – Not what they use to be

Remember when it was your birthday and you were so excited? You were going to have a good day – you just knew it. You’d have trouble falling asleep the night before because you were so excited. You couldn’t wait to blow out the candles on your cake. Next to Christmas, it was the best day of the year. Not just because of the boat load of presents you hoped to get, but because it was the one day that was all about you.

I’m not sure when it happens, but for each of us, that excitement changes one day. The presents slowly go from many – to a few – to possibly one if you are lucky. The big birthday cake your mom use to make or bought becomes cheesecake and coffee even though you are craving an ice cream cake.  And even if you had a cake, the candles would set off the smoke alarm now.

The day use to be all about you, but then one day, you have a birthday and everyone – including you – actually forgets.  How do we forget? Doesn’t everyone know how special we are? Instead it becomes just like every other day in our life. We get up and go to work. Even worse, we have to deal with stupid people. Don’t they know it’s our birthday? Can’t they just be smart for one day? Can’t they just stay away for our day?

Can’t our day be special just like it was so long ago? Oh well, there always is next year.

Ok, technically mine is in April, I’ll try and remind you all.  LOL

So why a blog on birthdays when mine is 6 months away? Oh that’s simple. I just wanted someone to know that even when we get older, someone can try and make their birthday special.

Happy Birthday Scarlett – Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaa  😛

Till next time everyone…….
