Melancholy Birthdays

July 03 2005
I am thinking about birthdays. Mine is coming up, and my family used to celebrate birthdays, but after my mom died (many moons ago) my family just sort of...stopped. I don't really mind so much that the family doesn't celebrate because things like that are awkward and painful. I am sure my sister will get me something, and I will get her something in a few weeks when hers rolls around. And I don't even want presents... all I want is for my closest friends to remember. I don't want a party, or gifts, or cake, I just want my best friends to remember. Charles is the greatest living man on the planet, but he has a bad memory. It doesn't really matter if he forgets my birthday, except for the awkwardness that will come when he remembers that he forgot. Oh well, no matter what happens, it will be the best birthday ever, because 2 days later I will become Mrs.Charles Galyon. I am so blessed to have such great people in my life. :)
