Last Sunday was my birthday. While birthdays can be wistful times, reminders of years behind, I always try to be extremely grateful and look ahead. After all, as my grandmother used to say, “Birthdays are better than the alternative.”
On this birthday, I felt so grateful and lucky that I threw myself a party. On Facebook. And as I wrap up my official birthday week, I wanted to say a public thanks to all who played party games with me and gave me their true birthday presence. (Yes, I know you wondered if it was a typo.) A big thanks to all these Red Cape Revolutionaries (in alpha order):
- Colette Auclair
- Eva Bergren Cronin
- Diane Fennig
- Robert Lewis, Jr.
- Melissa Montuori
I appreciate them all for jumping in with comments and ideas, and being an active part of the party! It added so much to my birthday celebration–and was calorie-free!! Plus, they get some of my favorite books as presents from me:
- [amazon_link id=”1594484805″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Dan Pink’s “Drive: The Surprising Truth About What Motivates Us”[/amazon_link]
- [amazon_link id=”0446692786″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Peggy Klaus’s “Brag: The Art of Tooting Your Own Horn Without Blowing It” [/amazon_link]
- [amazon_link id=”1591843790″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Guy Kawasaki’s “Enchantment: The Art of Changing Hearts, Minds and Actions”[/amazon_link]
