So, today is my birthday. I never knew anybody with my same birthday when I was growing up. But, several years ago, when my youngest son was in kindergarten, during ‘sharing’ he told the class that today was his mommy’s birthday. Well, one of his classmates piped up that it was also her mother’s birthday. And then a 3rd child – same story.
Of course, the teacher was a bit skeptical that all 3 kid’s mom’s in her class had the same birthday – but it was true! We were living on a military base at the time, and they were all my friends, too — but we didn’t know we shared the same birthday until these kids all piped up!
Anyway, I am always surprised at how quickly this date keeps swinging around – I’m sure you all feel the same, too, on your birthday. I started to think back over my birthdays of the past, and was remembering some of the treasured gifts I’ve received. Back when I was 17, I was looking through some magazines, and saw a jacket I really loved. It was a purple ski jacket and it had matching gators. I couldn’t believe several months later on my 18th birthday I came downstairs and there was the jacket and gators laid out on the couch!
I was so stunned. I have 6 sisters, so funds for birthdays were pretty tight, but my mom and dad really pushed the limit for that year, and I really understood and appreciated what they did. I don’t have the jacket anymore, but I still have those gators …. and … I’d rather not think about how long I’ve had them!
