Happy Birthday to me

Today is my 33rd birthday. Wow…thirty-three years. Over the past years I have learned a lot. A lot more than I ever thought or wanted to learn for that matter. I normally don’t say much about my birthday and just try to get through the day without anyone saying anything to me. But inside all I want is people to say something. I feel like birthdays are the most important day of the year. It’s that one day to celebrate you, who you are, and for you to feel special about yourself and the people in your life. When you realize that your friends do think about ya or when your loved ones show you the little things that make your eye’s well up driving to work. I can tell you honestly there are a lot of things that I could be kicking the can about and it takes a strong soul not to do so. I struggle with keeping my head up and the personality that I have every day. However there is something about today. I’m really blown away how many people have taken the time out of thier day to say something to me. Some people are family, some are friends, some are just aquaintances. Either way I feel really blessed to have all of you in my life. Even those of you that havent’s said anything but have been there to lend a helping hand or a listening ear. None-the-less all the reasons to be upset and feel self pitty are merely a drop in the bucket compared to how much I have going for me. Two beautiful children that look at me with the world in thier eyes. God, I love them! I wish I had a better way to explain what they mean to me. For now that will just have to do and I’ll just keep on working on showing them instead of finding better words. I’ve got some amazing friends that have really shown thier true colors through some of the rough times I’ve been through. I’ve got some family members that have stepped up and helped me when in need as well as open up about things in thier past that have given them wisdom. I also have another person in my life that blesses me with her presence and I am once again without words to explain how good she makes me feel. I try to do things for people that aren’t asking for it. I try to help a friend out when I know there is something I can do. I also do those things without expecting anything in return. When people thank me I normally just feel like they are being overthankful for something that doesn’t seem like that big of a deal to me. But you can still see it in thier eyes and it feels so good to know that you helped someone that really needed it. So right now I’m telling you I am that over thankful man looking back at all of you spilling over with emotion and just flat out happy to have you all in my life. Thank you all! I hope your birthday is as good as mine is. 😉
