Or maybe it's 40.
As a kid, we looked forward to our birthdays: cake and ice cream, opening presents and having a party with friends. Maybe it was all the sugar, but it was always a fun day. It was our day to celebrate.
We need to celebrate more.
(But probably with less cake. I mean, we shouldn't have cake everyday. Wait, how about pie instead of cake? We're grown ups now. We can have pie.)
Everyday is a gift. We need to celebrate the life we've been blessed with.
Maybe you're at a point in life where you aren't able to get around like you used to.
Think about the memories you've made and the places you've been. Reflect on the good and celebrate that.
May is a busy birthday month. Three of our nephews were born in May.
We are celebrating 7 years, 6 years and 2 years of life.
Each year full of memories, achievements and adventures.
The next time you get a party invitation in the mail, I hope you take the opportunity to "Rejoice with those who rejoice." Romans 12:15. We have so much to be thankful for and we need celebrate that.
