Lets just consider this a Public Service Announcement, shall we?
Lately, I have heard a slew of 'boo-hoo/poor-me I had to do thus and such on my birthday" comments and complaints, either first or second hand. You know, "Wah, I had to pack on my birthday." "Boo Hoo I spent my birthday dusting all the blinds." Yadda, yadda, yadda.
I can appreciate that birthdays are more important for some than for others. However, life goes on - on a birthday. There are still responsibilities, obligations, and needs to be met. If you don't want to be doing a particular thing on your birthday, then get it done the day before or do it the day after. As a wise woman recently commented, "It's not a national holiday!"
It's too bad that people for whom the world stops on their birthday, have to do less than lovely things that day.
No, I'm not a huge birthday person. Yes, I'm sorely lacking in grace and mercy.
But ~ I spent a birthday at the funeral of a suicidal child molester and lived to tell about it without drama and too much boo-hooing. So please, world, put your big girl panties on, live your life, and just be happy for another day.
Thank you for enduring me, I really do appreciate it!
