#SOL21: Willing to Celebrate


It’s birthday season. The next four months each have birthdays in my son’s family. It’s easy to celebrate. The grandkids love all sorts of things. As do the big kids. Sometimes there is a list. Sometimes not.

It’s not as though a Grandma would spoil the boys.

What other birthdays do we celebrate?

In my family (the siblings), it really varies. If they are on to grandkids themselves the siblings are SOL unless it’s one of those big numbers. This is a year for a big number for Mom. Her last big number 10 years ago involved a cruise of the Meditterranean with the youngest daughter.

How do we celebrate?

Well, it depends. (Not that answer again!) But it does.

So how do you celebrate when two second cousins have their 104th and 105th birthday?

The answer:

A birthday parade.

Led by a sherriff’s car.

Four firetrucks

Cars decorated in birthday trimmings.

Trucks

ATVs

Tractor

And a squad of Harleys.

Just a Saturday afternoon birthday parade

How do you celebrate birthdays? Whose birthdays do you celebrate? What are you willing to celebrate?
