Over the years, I have always been lucky to spend my birthday with people I care about. While I was never interested to celebrate birthdays with too many people, I remember the ones during school days when my parents used to invite a few of my good friends home. After cutting the cake and the exchange of gifts we used to have a nice meal at the restaurant of my choice. Surely not too fancy but an evening well spent nonetheless.
Birthdays with friends and
family are the ones which
are cherished always
Linking to dVerse Haibun Monday: Birthday
Agreed, it’s the people that make the day special! ✨
True that 🙂
Exactly as your haiku says. Sounds like many happy memories over the years for you with birthdays.
Yes they definitely were and am thankful for that :).
Oh, love this! Your haiku is very true. It sounds like you had quite the birthday. I find being with loved ones is what truly makes birthdays special. Excellent piece!
Being with loved ones definitely is the best part about any birthday :).
this carries wisdom. it is not the cake or the gifts, it is the people you celebrate with. 🙂
Yes definitely, that’s what matters in the end :).
Intimate birthdays with people we care about are the best, and most of mine have been that way. Your birthdays during school days sound perfect, that’s when you really want to celebrate with friends.
I quite agree with you on the fact about intimate birthdays as I have always found them more loving than ones where there are too many people and most are just interested in the cake and the food ;). Great to know that most of your birthdays have also been this way :).
They are! (K)
It really is all about the acknowledgement, anything to make it special. Over the years, I think picking out my restaurant of choice was one of the best parts.
It sure is :). Yeah picking out a restaurant of choice is lovely for sure.
