My wife and I are a bit eccentric I suppose because we declare birthday celebrations for ourselves anytime we want to.
The purpose of a birthday is to celebrate a person’s life. Most people only celebrate the person’s life on the yearly anniversaries of their birth.
Of course, an Anytime Birthday does not age a person. Instead, it makes the person feel younger, happier, more special, and more appreciated. The Anytime Birthday has nothing to do with age — it is only about the wonderfulness of that person’s life.
You can show your sweetheart how much you love them by declaring an Anytime Birthday for them today or later this week. During an Anytime Birthday, the birthday girl or boy gets to choose whatever they want throughout the day. They get to pick the movie they want, the restaurant they want, the appetizer and entree they want, the day’s activities they want, and the prayers and thoughts are focused on the value of that person’s life.
Of course, each Anytime Birthday is shaped by the wishes and preferences of the person we are celebrating that day. If that person likes ice cream or cake, well, then we will need to get that person some cake and ice cream! If the person prefers chocolate candies, then that is what we will get for them.
Our sweetheart should also get plenty of affection and words of appreciation so they know that they are very much loved and valued by us.
Can you see why life celebrations such as these should not be limited to once a year? Can you see how they make life and our relationship with one another so much richer and more glorious?
Enough said, don’t you think it is about time to declare an Anytime Birthday?
