Do you love your birthday month? Is it your favorite month of the year? I think each month should absolutely be adored by all the birthday recipients it contains. I know I love each and every day of September as they countdown the days to my own special day.
As a child I didn't think it was at all fair that I had to wait all the way to the end of the month for presents and cake. I don't think it is at all a coincidence that I should marry a man whose birthday is the very first day of his month. The end of one month, boom you are eating cake the next day!
One good thing about having a birthday at the end of the month, I receive cards in the mail all month long. My husband's wishes are always late!
My husband asked me the other day, "What volume of Columbo do you have?" Hmmmm, I now have 28 more days to think about the enjoyment I will have at watching my favorite detective solve the crime.
And 28 more days to drop hints about other things I have been longing to have.
I love that on my birthday my husband will take the initiative to let Charlie in and out ALL day long. All the other days of September there is an oldest child showdown as to who can wait the longest before the other one gives in yet again to see to Charlie's needs.
I love also that my children can be expected behind their knocks on the door, eager to embrace me and tell me I am their favorite Mom. My reply, of course, is that I am their ONLY mom! Their reply, of course, is "And you're the BEST one there is!"
And so today I wish you a Happy September as this is the month I wait all year for, plus 28 days!
