Almost forgot my friend's birthday!

September 13, 2017 4:39am CST
This coming 18th September is my friend's birthday. She is my ex-schoolmate and the only person who had been my friend since I was 5 years old. We went to the same Kindy, primary school, secondary school and secretarial course too. Although we are not soulmates, we had been together for the past 40 odd years. My teddy bear is my soulmate. I had just wished her a happy Birthday through Whatsapp because I know that I am a very forgetful person. Several times, I had forgotten her birthday and I felt bad about it. So this year, I am going to wish her Happy Birthday earlier and I did. Do you ever forget your best friend's or soulmate's birthday? photo belonged to peachpurple

@peachpurple you did the right thing. I also forget birthdays sometimes. Someone said that birthdays are for children. Do you support that?

To be honest, I don't remember all of my friend's birthday. But for my loved ones, of course, I know them.
