My 38th Birthday

73 Comments

Hello my dear friends, August 15th I turned 38 years young! I would love to celebrate my birthday with you all.

I have a brief story for you all about celebrating my birthday. I first started celebrating my birthday when I was 25 years old. All the previous years I did not celebrate my birthday, because my budget was tight! I couldn’t afford to invite my friends to come and celebrate my birthday with me. I wanted to have a cake with them and some drinks, which cost money I didn’t have. But always I had a strong hope and desire that I will start celebrating my birthday with my friends one day.

Then, since I have started celebrating my birthday, each year reminds me that my desire became true. I really encourage you all, my friends, to keep your desire alive in everything you are doing. Don’t give up hope, keep working and expecting for good results. When we have faith and don’t give up, our desires will succeed in good time.

  21. Wilson, I hope you had a a wonderful birthday. So many children in my country have expensive birthday parties for their little kids. They are too young to even know what is happening. I didnt haveb ig parties for my children-usually I envited the neighborhood kids in for cake and drinks. Each one may have had one or two special parties. One year, my now-grown daughter had a “Very Victorian” party where everyone was asked to dress like they lived in Victorian England and we made crafts like girls may have made then. I see so many babies, and young children having parties that are expensive to give and then everyone buys them expensive toys. I wish the parents and the teenaged kids in my coutry could read your article. They do not understand how much they have. My parents did not have birthday parties-they grew up during the 1930’s and times were hard. I had a few parties at my home. I think mothers should be more appreciated on a childs birthday-having and raising a child is not easy. I have lost a child. I would give anything to have him here at all. I hope you always get to celebrate your birthday with those you love. That is what matters the most. beebeesworld

    • Thank you so much for sharing with me your personal experience. That’s sad to hear that you lost your child! This is something hard as a parent, but your child is still with you in spirit. I lost my mom in 2008, but she is always with feel and me her strong in my heart. Even if I can’t see her in the physical, we are so close to each other all the time. It can be true for you and your child too. Remember him with love, talk to him in your heart, and you will be connected with him.

When your like popped up on my post this morning, I realized that I am missing your posts and that they are not showing up in my reader. 😕 I’m going to have to rectify that because I always enjoy what you have to say and hearing from you. God bless you and I hope that your 38th year is a marvelous year!! Hugs to you.
