Happy Birthday to me!!!

Happy Birthday to me! Yes folks it is my day. I have had a good one so far. Birthday wishes are pouring in. I had a surprise B'day party at lunch time today. Boy! was I embarrassed. I am expecting my best friend Sharda from New Jersey to be here soon. Looking forward to “Flashback” times.  It’s Thanksgiving in 2 days.  And we are going to celebrate it Indian style! Any excuse for partying.
Birthdays are so special. For a human being, being born is a joyous time. It is a time of fulfillment for the parents who are blessed with a son or daughter.  On this day normally, parents ask the child to start the day by having a clean bath and offering prayers to almighty. And that’s exactly how I started my day. It’s the important people in our lives that make it special by wishing us. By far the song “Happy B’day to you” is the most frequently sung song around the world. Birthdays are for parties! Gather young and old, family and friends to celebrate your birthdayHaving said that, my parents were not big into having B'day parties. And I am the same way. Children like to be surprised and enjoy their presents. So, I do try to make it special for them. It's mostly about opening presents. I can remember 4 important B’day parties in my life. When I turned 5, 20, 25 and 40. My parents had celebrated the 5th year B’’day party for me, 20 by some close college friends, 25 by my dear hubby and 40 by my present close friends. All had one thing in common. Can you guess? Of course a B’day cake. How can we have a B’day party without a B’day cake? 
My favorite B’day cake is the black forest cake, which I had on my 20th B’day.  No wonder, college friends are the best! They know everything about  you. Awww. I miss you guys.  That was a memorable day. I was definitely surprised.  And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count.  it’s the life in your years.  This year my wish is to stay healthy and be good and do good. I hope all my actions will be reflect positively. Hari om!
