As my notification option on Facebook has reminded me several times in the last few weeks, a friend has a birthday. On some days, it has been multiple friends, sometimes as many as five in one day!
I looked through the list of birthdays each day, and realized that 43 of my Facebook Friends celebrate birthdays in October. That’s 45 total – including me and my dog Oreo! It’s a varied group. Friends from high school and college, sorority sisters, two other women named Leslie, relatives, former co-workers, church members, foreign exchange students and children of my friends.
So I thought I would just wish everyone a Happy Birthday here in my blog at the same time. Even though it’s now November, I wanted everyone to know I was thinking of them on their birthday in October!
