Birthday Good Wishes

Thank you for your good wishes!

Having a Thanksgiving birthday has always made this a special time of year for me.

Architech and BuilderIt even opened some channels of creativity. Probably just shy of the age of eight (the first of my two younger sisters was born in March) Thanksgiving rolled around and as the day progress, there were no presents. When I asked about their absence I was informed that my birthday was the 27th which would be the following Monday and there would be a fine party with cake, presents, and friends. Not the result I was looking for. Sometime after Halloween the following year I suggested over the dinner table that I had been thinking about my birthday. I was born on Thanksgiving, right. Yes. I was born on the 27th right. Yes. My father was a lawyer. Then it seems like they are both my birthdays and should be celebrated accordingly. Two celebrations became the norm. Early in my teenage years as my creativity expanded, and again over the dinner table. I suggested that I had been thinking about my birthday. You could see the eyes roll. The new plan was that the dates should be inclusive beginning with one and end with the other. By God, it stuck. As time went on it wasn’t always easy to get others buy-in, but to this very moment, I remain true to the vigil. So here we are on the evening of the 27th and I bring this year’s celebration to a close with a huge thank you for being a part of this one.

I captured a few vignettes set in and about Thanksgiving time that I hope you will enjoy and feel free to share.

May these holiday times unfold for you in abundant joy,

David
