I love my birthday. Not because of presents. (Because I don't get much.) Not because of food. (Because I get that all the time anyway.) Not because I'm a year closer to death. (Who wants that?)
I love my birthday because for one day, people who I've run into in the course of my life say Hi and Hello. For someone who values the connections and friendships I've made through the years, this is the most valuable present of all.
Happy birthday to me!
