Why Celebrate a Birthday??
I was thinking, ok, my birthday is coming up, whipty doo. Another year, and I'm grateful for it, but it's nothing to celebrate. Is it?
I mean, what's to celebrate? Why do adult people celebrate their birthdays? Is it vain to want everyone to reward you with gifts and cake for being in this world another year? I got stuck on this last night. Good thing my buddy got me unstuck.
Hubby goes "It IS a special day, God created you and you are thankful for Him giving you life, and giving you another year. Also, I can show you how special you are to me." From what he was saying, I got it. It's not about me wanting to celebrate me, it's about me celebrating life and the gift of life that I've been given. That's worth celebrating. Hey... get my groove on now! Hands up!! Now slide!! Funky chicken! Whoop whoop! 39 and feeling FINE!!
Some say a real woman doesn't tell her age. I'm going to say a real woman can be proud to tell, as each year was a special gift, and she's thankful for how far her creator as brought her.
