Do You Know Anyone Who Goes Bananas for Birthdays?
My friend, Stacie, LOVES birthdays. Yesterday was hers. When I called in the morning, she answered the phone by saying, "It's my birthday!" All day, she sent texts about how excited she was for her birthday dinner. And when we arrived, she was wearing a sash that read, "It's my birthday!"
"Why do you love birthdays so much?" I asked.
"Because when we were growing up, my mama made our birthdays into the biggest holiday of the year. We got to choose our meal. We got to choose what kind of cake we wanted and we didn't have to do any chores!" she said.
She practically squealed. That made me giggle because there's something fabulous about feeling the magic of your birthday even after 40.
Do you know anyone who goes bananas for their big day?
