My little sister turns 21 tomorrow.
She is smart, sweet, funny, tenderhearted, gorgeous, and one-of-a-kind (oh, and single).
I wrote her a birthday card tonight and tucked a small gift card inside. Tomorrow, I'll stick a stamp on it and send it on its way to Colorado.
What do you do for birthdays? In our culture, it seems like the customary thing is to write "Happy Birthday" on the person's Facebook wall (and leave it at that). But may I gently suggest that we take back birthdays?
The next time you see that it is going to be someone's birthday...take the time to celebrate. Send a card. Buy a gift card to a coffee shop or frozen yogurt place (even if it's only $5). Drop by their house with a strawberry cake or a loaf of bread or a bottle of wine. Do something special.
May this be the beginning of a birthday revolution. Who's with us?
