Happy Birthday To Me?

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

I just had a birthday. I could say it was kind of a big birthday but I won’t. It is hard to have a birthday without getting a little pensive about how birthdays are these pretty big days and how they change for us.

There are our children’s birthdays and then there are our own and then our loved ones and friends and on and on. There is the time we eagerly anticipate the birth of our children. And then we celebrate their first birthday and then enjoy the excitement of seeing their little friends attend their parties. And there is the 16th and the 21st and the 30th and on and on… for ourselves and for our children.

And there is a time when we thought 30 year olds were “old” and so were our parents. And then we are our parents. Oh my, I have certainly gone off on a tangent here.

So, even though I am not always thrilled at the march of time I feel with each of my own birthdays, as well as Alexander’s, I am so grateful to have people who love me enough to want to celebrate them both. Thank you alI just had a birthday. I could say it was kind of a big birthday but I won’t.
