Let's Talk Fridays: How Important are Birthdays to You?

Since I have been talking about birthdays for the past couple of weeks,  I thought this might be a good time to discuss birthdays... I began reading comments online and was surprised to hear several folks say that birthdays mean nothing to them.  It's just like another day...

I am the OPPOSITE.  I find every way I can to celebrate... Birthdays are a time of celebration to me.  I don't necessarily need gifts on my birthday ---but I still love to celebrate.  As you know, if you have read my blog for some time,  George and I both surprise each other with some kind of short trip on our birthdays.  Just being together and being out in nature celebrating each other is enough for us.

We all know that kids love having birthdays.. Of course,  they love it for the cake (cute picture from the internet),  for the gifts and the parties..  Did you have birthday parties when you were little????

As an adult,  what do YOU do to celebrate your birthday these days???

Do birthdays remind you of getting older --and does that bother you????

Were you ever sad on your birthday? Did someone FORGET your birthday?

Some people (women especially) don't EVER tell their ages... Are you one of those????

WELL----no matter whether you celebrate birthdays or not,  all of us need to CELEBRATE LIFE.... So get out there and have some fun!!!!

And remember this:
Well---I have posed alot of questions for you to ponder...  Just pick one or two and TALK... I'm interested in what you think!!!!!   OR---if you wish,  tell us about your favorite birthday ever!!!

Have a good weekend, and don't forget to pray for the people in Japan, and give donations through an agency like the Red Cross.   I'll see you on Monday!!!!


P.S. As usual,  all photos are from the internet.
