I’m not a huge birthday person. I like my birthday, but I never have a party or any kind of big to-do over it.
I guess this year I could have really blown it out, all things considered, but I kept it low-key, spending the day with my son followed by a chill girls’ night.
In addition to that, I received so many kind wishes from family and friends, which really made the day special. And those wishes seemed a little extra-sweet this year. It’s funny how a bad medical diagnosis makes you realize the significance of things. It helps you see how each birthday truly is a gift.
So, while I didn’t have a huge party, I spent the day with people I love. And despite everything I have going on right now, that made this birthday one of the best yet.
