Some people do not like Birthdays; some may ask,

Why do we have birthday?

I have asked my self that many times in my life.


 

I found out that Birthdays are a time to reflect back on our lives and remember the good times and for get the bad times.

Life is too short to dwell about the negatives.

 

Be good to yourself; let the world know that you are alive for a reason.

 

Were alive for another year to share love, joy and peace with the world.

 

Today is the first day of the rest of your life, if this first day happens to fall on your birthday then make it a celebration of your life.

 

Celebrate your life; celebrate the fact that

you are a beautiful child of God.

 

Celebrate the fact that you are alive your breathing in and out.


 

So you can go and share with others and give love to others let your children know how much you love them on a daily basis.

 

Each day let your spouse know how much you love them. Tell your friends and loved ones that you love them and you are there for them if they need you.

 

Life is two short we cannot take it for granted. Pick up the phone and tell someone that you love them, and your happy to have them be a part of your life.

 

Tell them that today is their first day of their life, no matter what happened yesterday, or a week ago, or month ago; or even years ago, it does not matter because today is the day your living, and today is the first day, of the rest of your life. We are in the now so enjoy every moment that you have.

 

I love to share about Birthdays, especially because my birthday is, on New Years Eve.

 

Today I will be the oldest I have ever been in my life 

 

Birthdays are gifts from God we are blessed with another birthday to live another year.

 

So for that I say to everyone let’s live each day as if it is are last and share love with each other.

 

God so loved the world that he gave the world you.

Great reason to celebrate when that time of year comes around for all of us. You have penned very wise advice for all of us since we are still celebrating Christ' birthday and the Christmas season filled with love for all.

Wonderful write, Angela; I am grateful for each and every birthday I have. I am not ashamed to tell people my age, especially since when I was born forty eight and a half years ago, I wasn't expected to live the day; doctors gave me and my twin last rites. I am here for a reason, and it's only been in the last few years what I found out what the reason was: to write, to bless others through my words.



Merry Christmas, Angela; hope it was a good one (mine was!), and happy New Year/happy Birthday!! God bless you always!



(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :)
