I love celebrating my birthday.
I don’t do anything wild and frivolous; I just enjoy knowing that it’s my day.
My friends got a dose of that on Facebook as I reminded them yesterday to wish me a happy birthday. And then this morning, I encouraged them to shower me with well wishes.
It was all in good fun and most played along quite nicely.
Thanks for that friends and family – you indulge me when I don’t deserve it.
I spent my day with friends, family, enjoyed a McDonalds lunch, a home cooked traditional Peruvian dinner served by my mama and overindulged in two cakes. Two!
As I look back on today, what stands out the most is how much I laughed and laughed. Actually, as I look back on most days, what stands out the most is just how much I laugh and laugh.
Sometimes I’m funny. I enjoy being funny. But most times, I just enjoy laughing and that skill has served me well. Kept me grounded. Kept me real. Kept me going.
I know I’m not supposed to tell you what my birthday wish was – but I’m not superstitious so here goes : I wished for more of the same. I want this life that I’ve been blessed with to just keep going. To continue to be surrounded by the amazing people that I get to call my family, my friends, my co workers.
I wished for more laughter. For more of this that I get to enjoy day in, day out.
Did I mention I got two cakes?
Overall, a fantastic way to enter into my twenty ninth year 😉
