I really do.
Facebook is a really interesting social phenomenon. I have lots to say about it, and about why I use it now, where a year or two ago I would have given it a miss.
But today I just want to say that it is delightful to receive birthday wishes, many, so many of them, on The Facebook. I always have been a big birthday celebrator. I also believe(d) that you have to be responsible (as an adult) for your birthday ... if you want the birthday wishes, you must remind your loved ones that it is your birthday, and not in the days following it, but before.
On my Facebook birthday (close enough to, but not on my day for obvious reasons), I received wishes from people I have not seen in years, from friends I only know on the Internet, from loved ones I talk to all of the time. Each wish tells me that this person thought about me for long enough to post something, a wish, on my wall. I tell you, it feels amazing to think of this.
Sometimes I take the time to wish people a happy birthday on FB, sometimes I have not, because I didn't want to appear insincere. Well ... I will take the time, everytime, after yesterday, because I loved each and every wish I received, and feel positively bathed in good wishes!
Yum! I do love a Happy Birthday!
