Birthdays are funny things.
Some of them are super exciting.I remember my 12th birthday, when I received the Aaronic Priesthood at church and had my first opportunity to pass the Sacrament.
I remember my 16th birthday and being able to drive (legally) for the first time.
I remember my 19th birthday, when I was finally old enough to serve a mission for my church.
Some of them are disappointing.I remember my 22nd birthday, when I was newly married but still had to work the whole day!
I remember my 30th birthday, when I was no longer "young." (But that day was very good because Karen whisked me away on a romantic weekend).
Some of them are just "there"
to remind you it's been another year.I remember ... none of these, because they weren't really noteworthy!
And some birthdays have no expectations
associated with them, but turn out to be just
fantastic days filled with fun, food, and family!I remember ... my 35th birthday ... like it was yesterday! :)
|The board game VIKINGS ... fun!|
Despicable Me ... and it has become my favorite line to quote on birthdays.
Props to Rachel Sorensen for knowing that and making that her comment to me on Facebook! :)
