Truthful Tuesday — Happy Birthday

Full disclosure: today is not my birthday. However, Frank, aka PCGuy, has published another one of his Truthful Tuesday posts. This week Frank wants to know…

As you have gotten older, do you still celebrate your birthday, or has it become just another day to you?

I try not to make a big deal about my birthdays. I don’t want friends and family to make a fuss just because it’s the anniversary of something I had no control over or influence upon, nor did I accomplish anything special to reach that milestone. I’d rather everyone treat it as just another day.

But that applies to everyone else. At my age, I am internally thrilled to still be alive and to have survived yet another year. I don’t know how many more birthdays I’ll be around to celebrate, so as each one arrives, I have a huge celebration, even if it’s only inside of my own head.

    As a kid birthdays were a big deal. As an adult they were not a big deal until I beat cancer and now I am thankful for each extra year I get!
