Happy Birthday and Halloween!

October 31st, 2020 at 12:16 pm

Today is my 60th birthday! When I was very little, and didn't understand the concept of Halloween, I thought that dressing up in costumes and going door to door to get candy with my little neighborhood friends was all for my birthday! We would always have a family dinner, then invite my friends and thier parents over for cake and ice cream. Then we would all dress up and go trick or treating. Such good memories. 

As I reflect on where I am today, I feel very content and happy with life. There are certainly challenges right now, but I am choosing to focus on the positive and be thankful for all the good things in my life. I am pretty healthy, have a wonderful, close family, and a small but very special circle of friends. I'm financially stable, not rich by any means, but I have what I need to live a simple but satisfying life. 

Today, I will be going over to my brother's for dinner and a small birthday celebration. I doubt there will be any trick or treating this year, but that is certainly understandable. Life is certainly different today.

Have a great day all!

    Happy birthday! My sister's birthday is on October 30. She always hated getting an orange and black cake with skulls and witches! Finally she told my mother, please, a white cake with pink roses! It sounds like you have really enjoyed your Halloween birthdays, though!

    Happy belated birthday! Hope it was an enjoyable day! That's funny how you thought Halloween was for your benefit when you were little. It's funny how kids see life, isn't it?

    Hi Turtle Lover! I actually saw your original comment, thank you (and everyone) for the birthday wishes! I sent a message to the moderator through the forums days ago about your and one other person's comments that were somehow deleted but I never received a response from them. Hopefully they can fix that issue.
