I am glad my birthday is in the winter. You know - that yukky weather when the sun only shines occasionally, you are tired of staying inside all the time, you are extremely anxious for flowers to bloom even though that will be months away, you are afraid that the ice will never melt and even more afraid that you will slip and fall and maybe break something, you panic when someone in your air space coughs and they really should have stayed home, and you are anxious for green grass.
On my birthday, I went to work wondering what the day would bring. Yes, I did go to work and what did I see before I even made it into my office - my office door was decorated with signs. They were a big advertisement and I knew I wouldn't be able to keep my secret - everyone would know. I know who did it and he had better look out come April.
I had lots of well-wishers who just stuck their head in to say "Happy Birthday" and some even brought gifts of cakes, and candies, and flowers.
Thanks to all who made my day special!
