Today is my birthday. As I shoveled the front stairs and the wind blew and the snow fell lightly I was thinking how it used to be only a few close friends and family members knew it was my birthday and I was good with that. I try to avoid fanfare. Birthdays have changed with the advancement of electronic devices. I got numerous text messages and voice mails on my i-phone (songs of happy birthday). Facebook messages galore and a gift delivered by e-mail. Now am writing about it on a blog. Times have certainly changed, I have gotten
older more mature and I have a better understanding of enjoying life because life is too short. That being said I am fine with people knowing as long as there isn’t a brass band.
