A very happy birthday to you Janis...
...sometimes...the people we rely on most, when they fail and remembering or doing something...it hurts. Birthdays are big days, and you should try to celebrate no matter what other people have done. Make a birthday goal for yourself, or resoultion, or just do something fun! (Go to the batting cages, fun park, bowling, do a puzzle, get a massage, take a walk, watch a movie)
It's your birthday,...and sure...you can cry if you want to
But...giving yourself some time to say thank you to your body, your mind, and your spirit to make another year come true...that will help your birthday, be the most special of all.
