a skip in my step


Moments before I headed out the door this morning, I announced to Eric It's my birthday! He looked at me, with a lot of thinking in his face... until I excitedly added ...at work! He said he just thought I had gone crazy...
So, no.
Today is not my birthday... but it is coming... soon!
And the gals at work know... you gotta spread out the celebrating.
So off I went to work... with a skip in my step. Because birthdays are good. Yes... they are. Birthdays celebrate the uniqueness of an ordinary day... and as Elizabeth would say, they mark another trip around the sun (don't you just love that?!) And then there is the cake!
Yes.
Birthdays are good.

Birthdays really do celebrate the uniqueness of an ordinary day, don't they? I love that! I didn't know our special days were so close together! Happy birthday, even if it was just a warm-up for the real thing! :)

Birthdays are indeed special. Not only do they celebrate the uniqueness of an ordinary day, as you put it, they celebrate the uniqueness of the one blowing out the candles. Now, that's pretty special.
