HEY UM. Okay, I haven’t gone through every tag yet, and I’m trying to, and I haven’t even looked at DeviantArt yet!!!!! But I wanted to say thank you to everyone who sent me awesome notes, messages, draws, gifts, and general positivity on
this, the day of my daughter’s wedding my birthday.
Generally I’m not too amped about my birthday. I don’t really LIKE being reminded I’m getting older (who does?). And for the most part in my life, it hasn’t really been a big day to celebrate “me,” which is what birthdays are about I guess. I kinda got the short end of the stick on birthdays a lot of years, for whatever reasons. And after 21, everyone, yourself included, sort of stops caring about it. The growing up part is over, and you graduate into “not another one” feelings on your birthday.
But for the past two or three years, I’ve really found a lot of encouragement and good times and such from everyone online. It’s really cool. Way cool. It makes me look forward to it and feel good about it again. So thank you, all of you and everyone. It really makes me happy and appreciated. And it makes a birthday fun again. You guys are wonderful, and I’ll do my best to keep you all entertained and amused in further years!
