The older I get the more significance birthdays have. In earlier days I took them for granted. However, now I know they are not guaranteed. In fact, you don’t really know if you will have another, so I believe in celebrating to the fullest. Cake is a must…no diets allowed on birthdays. Singing and candles also must be a part of the party. Loved ones gather and acknowledge the value of remembering the day of your birth. Birthdays should be special. Every one of them, a cause for celebration.
Today is Louise’s 75th birthday. Not that long ago, we thought she might not make it to this one. Tonight we celebrated with dinner and cheesecake…which she loved. A simple gathering dedicated to honoring her life, because we know that every breath is precious.
