Our Birthdays - How do you celebrate birthdays?In India everybody celebrate birthdays. However, not everyone can afford the expenses to celebrate birthdays. A daily wage earner, being on hard up and poor people rarely celebrate this special occassion. I have had seen how a well-to-do people organise big party's to celebrate their birthdays.
In a couple of months time it would be my sister's birthday and I am in two minds whether to ask my builder for some advance to buy her a dress (Gift). I would have done that if Adsense E-check was in my bank. But now, if I do that, I might run short of monies for the month.
Sometimes, God forgets me. Does He think we humans are as smart as Him to come out of problems? If we were, He would not be God, right?
Today I'm bit annoyed with God. I can't even give a box of sweets to my little sister because that is what the Father (Priest) gives us each year on our birthdays. I actually find it funny that he treats us special children and mention us in front of everybody. At the end of the mass, he always calls us in hushed tone and gives us the box as if we don't know what is in it. I don't know if he does that to others too.
I know, I'm a grown up now, and recieving a small box of chocolate is sweet yet embarrassing. May be it is God's blessings. I hope God has plenty of them for us in Heaven.
