Should We Celebrate Birthdays?

>> Jan 26, 2015

Today is my birthday. My husband and I don’t have any plan. We just prayed together this early morning and it’s already a special celebration for me. Do you always celebrate your birthday? How do you celebrate it?

I found a good article written by Simon Jacobson. I agree with his thought. If we’re grateful for what we have in life now, we should also be thankful for the tree that bears the fruits of our life -our birth- that actually is our beginning.

The celebration should be much more than an event to receive gifts from close people. Birthday celebration is a time to commemorate the birth itself, a chance to rethink your life. A birthday could be an annual refresher.

He said that there is no better way to celebrate a birthday than to accomplish a special act of goodness. Not because one’s advices; but because your own inner soul wants to convey its thanks for being born and alive until today.

Black blue stone

For Blue Monday, I want to share a stone of my husband’s collection. We got the rough stone from a brother who works in a famous mining company. I still don’t know the exact name of the stone. Some friends identify it in different names. Perhaps we should take it to the stone lab. The dark stone has wonderful blue touches.

Hi Lina,

♬ Happy Birthday to you!

I always celebrate birthdays with cake, ice cream, and presents. Family gathers around and we enjoy one another. We do take time to reflect and be grateful.

Thanks for sharing.

Happy Blue Monday!
