Simple Birthdays

It seems easy to let commercialism rule your life. It's the natural way of things. Excess excess. Bigger, better. Flashy, showy. Where did you go? What did you do? What did you get?

But giving in to commercialism comes at a cost to allowing simplicity to flower and blossom.

Simplicity let's one gift mean something.

It lets ordinary cake be special.

It lets your everyday blessings be appreciated.

So I'm letting simplicity rule birthdays. Here I have found the sun shining, and gratitude over-flowing in simplicity. "Special" is something you have power over everyday. It doesn't have to be contained within theme parks, grandiose gifts, or over indulgence. Happy days are not "perfect" days, but days where you thanked God for the blessings in your life, and stood in awe of the gift of life.

And what a beautiful life it is, be it simple or grand.
