Well so far it is a fantastic day! I know my grandma isn't going to call me like she does every year to say she is happy I was born. You know the JW form of wishing someone a happy birthday. But a good friend of mine who I guess I have adopted as my grandma, she is a little younger than my grandma, she sent me a card this morning and said almost exactly what my grandma used to tell me. Of course that made me cry.
For the first time in my life I don't feel bad on my birthday. I would always love getting the happy birthday comments, but as a "good" JW I would always say "thank you, but I'm one of JW's and I don't celebrate" I hated that!!!!!!! Now I can proudly say thank you to my friends who care for me and don't have to give a GD witness!
