How I Feel About My Birthday

Wednesday, August 14, 2013

Today's challenge is to blog about how I feel about my birthday. I hated my birthday growing up. I have a cousin who is 5 years younger than me. His birthday is July 7th and mine is the 10th. We shared a birthday from his 1st until my 18th. His mom always made our cake and it was disgusting. It was chocolate with chocolate frosting, which I like; but it was covered with animal cookies, M&Ms, Skittles, red hots, and all kinds of other junk.

Now, I love my birthday. My husband and daughter do everything they can to make me feel special. This year, my daughter and I went camping for my birthday. We had a great time. My husband is always trying to surprise me, and does a pretty good job at succeeding. I prefer celebrating other's birthdays, but I do enjoy mine.

    I love being outdoors. I really hope to get to Alaska one of these years. It is on my Bucket List, after all, as is a trip down the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers!

    I need a dose of camping! emoticon

    Kristi and Deb. Thank you for sharing your birthday stories.
    I hope that my comment will not give you a negative response. I had a very abusive childhood [with birthday parties] and I felt that I didn't belong to my birth family. Emotionally I didn't but by birth right - Jesus gave me as a gift to my birth family.

    As I grow in my healing journey, Jesus tells me how precious and special I am to Him. Due to the emotional injuries received, I never felt special to anyone. But Jesus keeps reminding me that He doesn't make mistakes and that as a Holy and righteous God, He can only make special precious treasures. Slowly my heart is receiving this as I get healed. So I pass on to you both today, a blessing from Jesus. He made you. You are both precious to Him. He cares and loves all His children more than we will ever know on this earth.

    Jesus I lift both my sisters up before Your Throne of Grace. These two sisters are very precious to You, Abba and the Holy Spirit. Jesus please show them how truly you love them and that they are special to You. As a Holy God You can't make one child special and then not the next. As a Holy God you can only make special treasured people. Please show both my Sisters how much you love, care and treasure them in such a way, that their childhood hurts will be healed. In Your Precious Name Jesus I pray this Amen.

    Well at least you had a party of sorts. I NEVER had one as a child. I gave myself my own parties when I grew up and out. I probably was the only one there. I had no friends so to speak & no one would come anyway. My weight kept me shy and to myself and the friends I did had were like two-faced at the time. Now my brother had parties and my sister did too. Both of them were popular and THIN...at the time. They both have gained weight. I really enjoyed giving my children birthday parties and buying them cakes from the bakery to make up for what I missed. I do LOVE my birthday even if I'm home alone. Since it's in November sometimes it's on Thanksgiving like last year.
    Thanks for sharing! I would have written one if I hadn't shared my daughter's Miracle birth but I wanted to Celebrate her life!
    Enjoy your day!
