It's my Birthday!

    It's my birthday today, Sept 19. I was born in 1972.

    I find it interesting that so many people I know post a "Happy Birthday" on my Facebook page. All of those years inside the WTS org., and I always thought birthdays were evil, Pagan, God dishonoring. As it turns out, birthdays are just a way of telling someone that you're happy they were born. Nothing more. When my friends find out I grew up a JW and never celebrated birthdays, they look at me as if to say, "You're kidding!"

    It's no big deal, really. I guess having grown up as many of you did, without celebrating them, my B-day isn't all that important to me. However, it is nice to have so many people wishing me to have a happy birthday. It feels good. Too bad there are so many JW's who don't know how nice it is.

    Happy birthday, drewcoul!

    Best wishes to you, and hold on to the Thirty-X years old as long as you can.

    (btw, mine is tomorrow - the 20th. )

    I concur - you may have cake, but please refrain from chopping anyone's head off. It's always the hardest on your first birthday to suppress that raw emotion... ;D
