Why I Love September

Unless you’re not into celebrating your birth anniversary, how can you not love a month that begins with your birthday? Through the chance event of being born on the first of the month, I get to begin this 30-day period on the calendar with an outpouring of love from family and friends. The kid in me feels blessed to celebrate in the traditional manner, blowing out the candles on a birthday cake surrounded by family, which includes Cat, the kids, my sister’s family, my parents, and, occasionally, my friends. But I also appreciate the birthday wishes that come through more contemporary channels: the unexpected text, the thoughtful e-mail, and, of course, the flood of Facebook messages and timeline posts. I don’t receive handwritten cards (still my favorite) as often anymore, but the few I do receive are treasured and tucked safely away in my night stand drawer.
