Birthdays

Filed under: John Morgan's Blog — John Morgan @ 6:13 am

I love birthdays. I love remembering them and celebrating them, especially the ones of people close to me. I will admit that I even get a warm fuzzy when the waiters and waitresses sing happy birthday to a total stranger in a restaurant.

I’m sure I’ve explained it before but birthdays seem to be a day to celebrate the uniqueness you or someone else has developed in this lifetime – your special brand of light.

Am I alone in remembering birthdays? Reminds me of a story . . .

About 20 years ago, my friend, Paul was interviewing 50s-60s teen idol, Bobby Rydell. I forget how it came up but Bobby was talking about a kid he knew in high school who had a knack for remembering his classmates’ birthdays. The amusing part of the story is that’s how this fellow would greet you. He would say, “Hi 9-28” or “Good morning 4-16.” That’s when I knew I wasn’t alone.

Birthdays are a celebration of the first time we were treated to you. They point to a special day where someone fresh and new came into our world. Celebrate that freshness as often as you can, and certainly on your or someone else’s special day.

Today is my youngest son’s birthday. Although, as my mother would have lovingly said, “He’s big and ugly now,” his birthday reminds me of the special light he brought into this world with him. It’s such a pleasure and joy to watch that light shine.

I invite you to investigate a new angle of view about birthdays. Remember to celebrate the special brand of light shone by the birthday boy or girl, no matter what their age. Allow the candles on the cake to remind you of the special brand of light that’s always present within them and you.

Happy Birthday 9-28. My birthday wish for you is that you get to see the same light as I do in you.

 

All the best,

John
