A Wish To Remember...





as a child i used to look forward to birthdays... mainly because every birthday up until my 9th was a celebration and a party and of course...all those birthday PRESENTS!!! 

then as the candles on my birthday cake grew to double digits over the years... the parties seemed to become more of a hassle and headache... because drama always ensued as to who i did or did NOT invite...(the whole pre-teen middle school classroom politics) and yada yada yada...

then after my sweet 16 came and went... i found myself experiencing my college years and birthdays just seemed to be just a simple/fancy dinner with friends and their (plus ones)...

gifts didn’t really seem at the top of my list anymore and i didn’t mind that perfect strangers were celebrating my special day with me... but i did notice a shift of excitement when it was finally time for the birthday cake to come out from the restaurant kitchen as the waiters started singing that dreadful birthday song at the top of their lungs making everyone there look my way...

it was embarrassing ... and i hated it...

i don’t know why... but i hated it so bad...i kinda slowly lost my desire to celebrate my special day...

so from then on... i slowly downsized my birthdays to just a few close friends... then to just family...then to just nothing at all (yes i don’t have any celebrations whatsoever anymore)...but i do still get an occasional gift from a friend (yes... just one)... and last year  i got a rather beautiful bouquet of flowers from (**someone special)...

that midnight when i got a text message from (**someone special)... it was a birthday wish... 

and it read :-

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY... i’m so glad for today... because today is the day you were born... for if you weren’t born... i would have never gotten to know you...”

(a birthday is first and foremost to celebrate the day you were born... and through the years i got so caught up with expectations of gifts and middle school politics to restaurant embarrassment to just dreading getting officially older by the year... that i forgot what a day of "being born" was all about...)

and that hallmark moment from (**someone special) was and always will be...

 a wish to remember...
