A birthday is a day when a person celebrates the anniversary of his or her birth. Birthdays are celebrated in numerous cultures, often with a gift, party, or rite of passage. The celebration of a birthday usually is thought to mark how old a person is, traditionally stopping when death occurs and only stating that if still alive, they would have been (number of years) old. Some contemporary writers ignore this aspect, however, and keep counting the years since the date of birth of famous people, such as proclaiming that it is Shakespeare’s “four hundredth birthday” (although he died at the age of fifty-two) instead of noting that it is the four hundredth anniversary of his birth.Many religions celebrate the birth of their founders with special holidays
Tomorrow is mine. It’s not a big deal beacause I turn 40, it’s the fact that I’m here to see it. People ask how I can keep perspective of everything thats been going on in my life and I keep saying all how you look at it and how you let it rule you. By all accounts I’m not supposed to be alive today or tomorrow. Hell I didnt know if I’d see a tomorrow for many years.
I didnt do this alone I had the best support group ever imaginable. I put them all through many sleepless nights, gave them grey hairs,…it goes on and on.
So tomorrow im 40, and I’m 5 for those of you who suffered ’08 with me. It’s a great, I can’t thank those who’ve been on this ride for so many years enough. I didnt do this alone.
