There is a good reason to celebrate your BIRTHDAY all week and this is why; “Every year your “BIRTHDAY” lands on a different day of the week and the original “DAY” that you made your GRAND ENTRANCE on to this EARTH – – that day only shows up “once” in a “BLUE MOON” – – meaning that your BIRTHDAY will be here every day of the week, some time, some year, and so we must “Celebrate” for a whole week to give honor to each day of the week – – remembering that some days of the week – – work out better for a “BIRTHDAY PARTY!”
“WOW” – That was a whole lot of stuff to say – just to justify having a whole week to celebrate a BIRTHDAY. This celebrating comes from the earliest of my Birthday Parties – as far back as I can remember.
My Daddy was the kind of guy that like to do things up in a big way – and that included him having lots of Food and Drink for the adults that came to partake in the “PARTY” for his children. He would have “tubs full of ice for the soda and beer” and then he would cook enough food – you would think that he was going to feed an ARMY!
For us children, there was a large “play pen” and we were in it. So no harm to us – the center of the attraction and some people would come and blow those “extending horns” right up and close to the “BIRTHDAY Child” – we had our own toys to play with – and the adults were having the best of times – doing what they do – eat and drink and have so much FUN – and now, that I think about it – I am wondering if we even got some of the Birthday cake?
It sure is FUNNY – some of the silly things you will remember, as you think about some of your long ago BIRTHDAYS – some BIRTHDAYS were just too much to do and no FUN – -and then others, were nothing at all prepared – and “WOW” – just more FUN and to be remembered, for always!
This year was the best ever BIRTHDAY – since in addition to the FAMILY, GRAND- Children, this year a real first class “A#1” addition was my first “GREAT Grand-son, Lex” – and to have this special addition to our FAMILY – makes LIFE feel like “Heaven on Earth” – that is to me – – can not speak for others – since there are some in the FAMILY that are no longer here, but, I still remember them as if they were still here – but to have NEW babies added to the FAMILY – that is what we all LOVE having to remember – how the NEW Life replaces the old – and always more real good heart warming memories to pass on!
“Thanks be to our Heavenly Creator, the only ONE to give us those that will be with us today and then for tomorrow new children to build us up – with the desire to live for the next exciting day and time for the whole FAMILY to gather together!” D.V.
