Okay I know by the divine wisdoms bestowed here one shouldn't wish a happy birthday to anyone here..but then I'm the rebel type and sometimes don't always play by the rules...LOL But today is a very special day, for a very special MyLotter...Today is gabs' birthday, and I just HAD to wish her in this public way to wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY and rules be damned. So I'm hoping everyone here, those of you who are her friends will wish her a Happy Birthday too. And I truly hope she is on the mend, and will feel better soon, now that she has had her surgery. So...besides wishing gabs a Happy Birthday...and to turn this into a discussion "proper" what do you do to celebrate your birthday..do you go all out and maybe have a special dinner? Do you get cards or gifts? I actually love celebrating birthdays...oh, yeah, maybe I'm none to keen on getting "older" but the child at heart in me still loves to celebrate birthdays...why not? We celebrate Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter...why NOT celebrate the day you were born, the day you began life? Aren't you important enough to celebrate your birth?I love to celebrate by making my favorite dinner of Beouf Bourgninon served on a bed of couscous...I have a cake..I get a card and birthday balloon for myself, and usually make some craft gift as a present for myself... So how do you celebrate your special day? AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO OUR FRIEND GABS...CELEBRATE YOUR DAY WITH LOVE....HUGS AND KISSES TO YOU....Blow out the candles on this virtual cake and make a wish

Gabs, thanks for filling us in on how you are doing. You sound as if you are not too worried. I am just glad that you got the surgery and can start mending and be better week by week.

I know it's being managed by a nurse, but still, I'm very sorry that you have to go through this, on top of the surgery, gabs. Please get all of the rest you need. Hugs to you.

sorry to hear that you're not completely out of the woods yet gabs, but at least you have the operation behind you and you can be on the road to recovery. Hope Gissi is trying to make you feel better now that his mum is home

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GABS have a wonderful day, I know Darkwing is still with you and Gissi so enjoy the day. Hope you are well on your way to recovery now. Thoughts are with you. I celebrate with my children and receive a cup of tea in bed to start the day and then open gifts and cards. I usually get bought a small cake and enjoy blowing out the candles and making a wish. Sometimes I may go out in the evening for a meal, this year I had to work but still enjoyed the day. Ellie :D

Mmm..that really sounds great that on your birthday you're sort of served breakfast in bed, and can relax and open your gifts and cards.

HAPPY B-DAY, GABS!!!!!! Maybe you, Gissi, and Darkwing can have a quiet picnic in the park, IF allowed. I'm sure Chudleigh will be happy to accompany you 3 and entertain you with his antics.

I think that would be a lovely idea!!! I haven't been to an old fashioned picnic in ages...so that would be an ideal way to celebrate a birthday Maybe we can get Tigger Pyewacket and Kissy to come to...no?

I do give myself permission to do something just for me on my birthday. I have already been asked to work on my birthday, which is not for almost two months, but I do not think I will. I do not always have cake, but we usually go out someplace nice to eat. Yes, we need to celebrate the day we are born. That is such a good choice. I trust our friend will also have a good day, and I am pretty sure she will with DW there looking out for her.

Happy birthday Gabs!!! Maggiepie suggests that you also give a gift or card to your mother, if she is still alive, for giving birth to you.

Hi pye, It's so sweet of you to start this discussion, but I'm not surprised though, as I know how much you enjoy 'all' types of celebrations. I think you've got the right idea about these things, and I agree, we should do something special to mark each year we're granted. There's certainly nothing wrong with treating ourselves. As for me, my birthday's coming up in a week, and my daughter's is the day after, then my grandson's the day after that. Oh, and my niece's is on June 23rd. Because of all of this, mine often gets lost in the shuffle, so to speak, but I always end up going out to dinner (with somebody), and this year my sister's coming out in the evening, and my daughter's celebrating her birthday at a restaurant with a group of her friends. My sister and I will 'tag along' to the same place, but will sit separately, and have a nice dinner together. Then my daughter's bringing a few friends home for a sleep over, and my sister's spending the night, so I'll have company for me too. On Sunday the 29th, we're going to my grandson's 5th birthday party, and then we're taking off for a week to my sister's for our July holiday. I hope this all makes sense, as it seems like an exhausting week etc. Oh yes, I always get some gifts too, so I am really blessed. Remind me again, when your birthday is pye! Hugs to you. Gabs, I do hope you have the best day possible. You're a very special lady, and you so deserve it. I'm glad that Darkwing is still with you, and of course, your wonderful little Gissi. He must be so happy to have you home. Hugs to you too.

Thanks pye. You're a great friend to have. Last year at this time, I wouldn't have even mentioned my birthday to anyone on here (in the open forum I mean), as I didn't know anyone very well. I think I told a couple of people privately, but can't quite remember. I'm very blessed to have made some wonderful friends since then, and thanks for letting me know when your special day is. I've written it in my calendar book, so I won't forget again. I'm so very thankful that gabs is coming along so well.

Sto lot! That's a traditional Polish birthday greeting. Literally, it means "100 years" but poetically, it is a wish for a long life. For my own birthday, I generally have a decadent-type cake, with lots of whipped cream and chocolate shavings...
