I Love Birthdays On Social Media and Otherwise!
Birthdays are a joyful time, not just mine…I love everyone’s Birthday. I love that Social Media sites tell you when it’s someone’s birthday so you can say “Happy Day” to them. Facebook, Google Plus, LinkedIn, it’s fun!
In my family we have a tradition…my dad always calls us kids and sings happy birthday. He still does. This year on my birthday last Thursday, I missed the call and got his rendition on voice mail. At first I was disappointed, now I realize it’s great…I’ll never erase the voicemail. I’ll keep this one forever if I like!
On birthdays, like Dr. Seuss says, we honor the person for just being alive, just being them. They don’t have to accomplish anything that day but be YOUer than You. Birthdays don’t discriminate. Everybody has one. They are good for stopping to take stock of your like, or just having fun. I did both. Here is the video I made just before my birthday on my webcam where I waxed philosophical:
God is good…He holds the Future and Life is worth the Living, Just Because He Lives!
And I had lots of FUN on June 19th! My sister Suzy took me to Lunch, my husband Mike took me to Dinner! I went shopping with Suzy and got a new outfit! 🙂 I tried like everything to keep up with the well wishers, my friends on social media and couldn’t! Isn’t this a wonderful world we live in. Sure there are drawbacks and lots of times we think about the good old days, but when did hundreds of people wish you a happy birthday and many blessings and hugs before now? It’s a pretty great world in many ways, I think!
There were pre-birthday celebrations. When old friends got together:
So I have to say that on Social Media and Off! With extraordinary family and friends…Birthdays can be Youer than You! And a BLAST! Happy Birthday to YOU!!!! Love ya! Libby!!!!! And thanks for attending this party! xoxoxo
