Today Is My Birthday… But I Have A Better Idea

birthday

I was thinking about my birthday and I was thinking about the relevance of the day.  What did I do to deserve a celebration on my birthday?  After all , my wonderful, kind, beautiful mother did all the work!

So this gave me a new idea. Instead of celebrating my birthday today, I think I should celebrate my birthing days. Therefore this year I have decided to pass on my January birthday and instead celebrate the four days I gave birth: in April (thanks to my daughter) and in February, August, and November (thanks to my sons). This makes logical sense to me! Four deserved celebrations instead of one undeserved day.

To my children, consider this your fair warning! (But wait..who bakes the cake?) Just don’t forget my birthing day gifts! You have NO EXCUSE to forget now, because my birthing day is your birthday! What a wonderful idea this is!! (If I ever have grandchildren then I can have a grand-birthing day too… so much to look forward to)!

With this new strategy in mind, today is my birthday but not my birthing day. Today is my Mother’s birthing day! So thank you to my beautiful mother. We love you and miss you and know you are smiling in heaven.  We will always remember your wonderful smile and sense of humor. Happy Birthing day Mom!
