I’ve been mulling this thought over in my head, A thought that things should be celebrated in life.
I celebrated this morning when I pulled my daughters out of bed, put a kiss on their soft cheeks, inhaling their sweet scent and spoke to them as if they were the only ones in the world.
Everyday should start off like this, for them AND for me.
I have been reading Natalie’s blog, she’s a BEAUTIFUL person. Her birthday week started and she’s taking full advantage of the fact that she was born. Why?... Because she can… because we all should!
So… I started thinking.
Dave’s birthday is in a few weeks.
He doesn’t want anything; he doesn’t want a big deal made out of it.
But I do!
He’s the one who makes me laugh, the one who tries to fulfill my wishes and hopes. He’s the man that gives me butterflies; I need to do something to show him that I am so happy everyday to know he was born.
I used to think that all I needed was to create my birthday for ME! .... I can, I did it for the past two years… but, I want something more, proof that someone else was thinking about me. Who doesn't want that?
Natalie has four tips for Birthdays
Tip #1 - Personalize it
Tip #2 - Feel fabulous
Tip #3 - Create family traditions
I think they are tips for all people, Tip #4 works for husbands as well.
What do you think?
How do you personalize it? Do you take a picture of yourself every year so you can remember?
Do you dress up and feel beautiful on your birthday?
Do you sing Happy Birthday to family members every year? (My father sings to me every year, and I know when he passes, I will miss this on my birthday!)
Do you know how your significant other wants to spend their birthday? Have you asked his/her parents what they used to do? Have you told your husband/wife what you want/expect?
Don’t let another day to by… tell them now.
I just got off the phone with his mother… now… it’s time to ask him.
Happy Birthday to all my friends…. May you have someone in your life that gives you the birthday you deserve! If there is ANYTHING I can do…. Just ask… I’ll even call you up and sing “Happy Birthday” to you…. But NO ONE needs to hear that debacle!
