Even vaster than the myriad shades of the rainbow are the memorable birthdays – each and every one – good ones – poor ones – family-loved ones.
Birthdays are a sense of uniqueness. How wonderful it is to have 365 or 366 days per year—so many days—and in that fact, one day so special. Imagine us only having a 30-day year... birthdays would hardly be special or memorable at all.
It is good to enjoy some decent and pleasure-filled reflection on our birthdays—casting our minds back to whence it all began. Throughout such a journey we can’t help recall the different parties, celebrations, mishaps, disappointments, loves and friendships.
And let’s not leave it there; we go into the future and count off our anticipated birthdays, tracking where we’re at and where we’re headed... and not in any way judgmental of ourselves; just thinking.
And, as always, we land in the present day. It’s a magnificent concept, the birth-day.
