Nanhe once asked me—–
Why do we celebrate birthdays? What is it that we are toasting? Is it the fact that we have survived another year against many odds? Are we marking the progress we have made, our cumulative achievements and possessions? Is a birthday the expression of hope sprung eternal to live another year? I’ve been told that I am oddity when it comes to birthdays. I hate celebrating my birthday. I always have. I don’t mind celebrating someone else’s birthday, just mine. This is what Nanhe said.
Actually I also echo the views of Nanhe because, I never find anything very especial to celebrate the Birthdays. There are no specific reasons but still…..I feel there is nothing great to celebrate the Birthdays. So i don’t celebrate but would like to thank all my well wishers and enemies (if any). Because being with them, i have learnt some invaluable lessons.
I’ll wake up tomorrow and embrace another year. Another year with more laughter than tears, more success than failure, more hope than despair, and more love than I deserve. Bring it on!
Oh, and dear Lord, thank you for the gift of this last year, with all its hard-learned lessons, and bringing me through safe and healthy, with my family intact. With your blessings I’ll make it through another.
Thank you all for your wishes.
