them? or what would you do, would you be hurt? I experienced that once, it feels so sad that they dont remember one of the important event in our life...what i did is just sleep for that whole day and as if it was just an ordinary day...so as if i didn't get old by that time, to lessen the burden or sadness...LOL... How bout you, did it happened to you?

The only wise thing my ex-husband ever said to me was a very long time ago, after he had forgotten my birthday for most of the day until someone in my family called was this. He said that I remembered all of the birthdays in the family, the kids, my family, his family, our friends and I would always tell him when someone's birthday was coming up. He wanted to know why I kept quiet about the most important birthday of all...mine? I had no good answer for that and decided that keeping my birthday a secret as some test to see who loved me and who didn't wasn't fair to him or to anyone else who knew me. Things come up and, if you forget someone's birthday, you feel horrible so I decided to no longer contribute to making anyone feel horrible about forgetting my birthday. I start telling everyone about two weeks before that my birthday is coming up. It's supposed to be a happy time so I don't see anything wrong with letting people know that it's almost here. Maybe you should try that next year and hopefully you will have a happy day and your special day.

haha...yes i think that's a good idea to announce your birthday two weeks before even if there is no party that will happen..at least you will know who would remember on that very special day on our life...lol thanks for that idea! have a nice day! God bless!
