Most of the time my family forgets about my birthday.
When I was 16 I actually had a day when no one remembered.
I was away at school and my parents never sent a card and none of the teachers bothered to check. since then I mostly never tell people my birthday.
I buy myself presents and don't really fuss over others' birthdays except children.
Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things:... Psalm 98
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal
2 COR 16-18
Doing nothing is the most perfect form of action, when I do nothing there is nothing left undone and there is nothing left to do.... The Way by Lao Tse
