Birthday WishesPosted: July 9, 2009
My birthday is still one week away, and I am so touched by all the birthday wishes that have been flowing in already.
First, it was just my friend Ann. (Taylor. Do you know her? I’m sure I’ve talked about her before.) I hung out with her a lot last year, so I wasn’t surprised when she sent me a little card wishing me happy birthday, along with a little discount to do some shopping. So nice!
And then my friend Eddie sent me a birthday wish! (Bauer. We’ve been friends forever!) I haven’t seen that much of Eddie lately, so that was a really nice surprise. And wow – he also sent me a little discount card to do some shopping. My friends really know me!
I have to admit I was a bit surprised when Victoria also sent me a birthday card and a little discount to do some shopping, because I really have not had any contact with her in ages, and even then it was just a few times. I wouldn’t say we’re really friends. She was always going on and on about her “secret” and frankly, I just was not that interested. But it was a nice gesture and I certainly don’t want to be rude.
The birthday wishes have continued to pour in. My friend Banana R. My friend Macy. My friend Talbot. My friend DSW. My friend Naturalizer. It really makes me think about how lucky I am to have so many good friends who care about me. I hope I can see all of them next week to celebrate!
