Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me..........


It's my birthday, December 11th......Yeeeeee Haaaaawwwwwwwwww!

I feel like a list is in order....maybe two.....

I wish for a light heart....a strong heart....a good heart.....

I wish for peace, world over, even if it sounds cliche'

I wish for everyone to receive what they dream of, now and always

I wish for love.....abiding and hopeful

I wish for the stamina to make it through school

I wish to make a difference....to give back.....to help

I wish to have snow on Christmas....(I think I'm pushing it on this one, snow in Roseville once a decade is probably all we can hope for)

I wish for my Nephew to find his own peace as he assimilates back to civilian life after Iraq

I wish for my loved ones to have a beautiful and fulfilling Christmas.....


AND, list two......

I love how my fammily has always made sure to set my birthday apart from Christmas even though it would have been easy to lump them in together...

I love how my Mom and I joke about her making me a birthday cake each year and she actually makes one for me.....

I love how my Dad bugs me for a list of things I want for my birthday and then goes out and buys the super, duper, ultra deluxe of whatever I've asked for, even though I don't really want or need the super, duper ultra deluxe model.....

I love how my Dad always insists on seeing me (and his other kids) on their actual birthday to wish them a Happy Birthday.....

I miss how my Grandmother would load up a gift bag with items she had been squirreling away for years ahead of time.....I always got what I asked for, but usually two years later......

I love that my birthday is exactly two weeks before Christmas....not that other birth dates aren't special, but I've always believed that December babies are a little more special.....

I love that I have sooooo many coincidental birth date match ups in December....my dear friend's father is the same day as mine, my best friend's birthday is on December 17th...the same exact date as my cousins, who is six days younger than me and my best friend's twin daughters' birthdays are December 26th....my younger cousin's birthday is December 14th.....many special December babies in my orbit!

Maybe my birth date is why I love Christmas sooo much.....

I love how on my birthday I never feel older, only a little more sure of myself and lucky to be here.....


Peace

Happy Birthday , now I know three people who share the same birthdate. My daughter's birthday is December 18th and I can remember how busy our Christmas was the year she was born. That was back when they kept you in the hospital for 5 days. They let me out one night to go shopping but I had to return. I got out just in time for Christmas!

Happy Birthday! But noooooo! You can't tell anyone what you wished for otherwise it wont come true. Then again your blogging so there might be a loophole.

Ah happy birthday!!!!!!!!!! yes, us december birthday babes ROCK xx

rxBambi said...

I'm with Spud! December babies DO rock! I'd say Capricorns are better... but you, Spud, hubby, and BOTH my daughters are Sag's so I guess you guys win.

Hope it was AWESOME.

Sorry I'm late but it's only because I was away from blogging for our own birthday stuff. Happy (slightly belated) birthday and may you get everything you're wishing for. :)

Hey! Happy Birthday (late, but I figure a Birthday Month is really how it works).

Hope it was lovely... and you should plan a trip to SF with you camera soon! (have you been back?)
