Although I made the decision NOT to share my birthday with my co-workers, I really wanted them to find out and celebrate with me! As I mentioned, I LOVE BIRTHDAYS and I LOVE PRESENTS!
At the end of the day, it became obvious no one knew it was my birthday and I left with no celebration. Although I was a bit sad, I realized even though no one else knew it was my birthday, I KNEW, and I FELT SPECIAL!
Today, I decided to share the fact that yesterday was my birthday with my supervisor. Deep down, I think she was tickled because I was so proud of my huge accomplishment (by not telling anyone!). About two minutes later, I was called to a meeting in the conference room where my coworkers had bought LUNCH, PRESENTS, AND CAKE to celebrate ME!!!! I WAS SO EXCITED!!!!! They overheard my supervisor’s supervisor wishing me a Happy Birthday and felt terrible that they missed my birthday.
Although I didn’t have my camera at the time, I managed to take this picture of the adorable Birthday Card for this post!
I was VERY BLESSED by my co-workers! Such an amazing Birthday Celebration!
