I've said it before, (and I'll say it many times more) I love birthdays. If it wasn't for our 'birth' day we wouldn't be here, so if that's not a reason to celebrate in a big way, I can't think what is.
Of course, as we get older, we tend to make less of a deal about them. How many times I've heard people say, "It's just another day." And as our kids grow up and move away from home finding a way to honour our babies can be challenging.
For a mom who used to throw two parties for her kids — one for friends and one for family — that has been a tough reality. But, as I suspect it means more to me than to them now, I do what I can to make me happy. It begins with the early morning telephone serenade of "Happy Birthday" and concludes hopefully with a visit squeezed in that day or with the promise/threat of one sometime in the near future.
Ultimately I believe, whether there are many behind you, or plenty ahead of you, birthdays should be celebrated. Each and every year that we are here is a gift and a blessing to enjoy and cherish. So, today blow out the candles and make a wish for birthday celebrants of all ages with these great photo collections:
