Motley Monday: Birthday

As a child I loved birthday and presents. Did you? "Unfortunately my birthday is once a year" a Russian children's song is. 
Getting aged I value every year that a life or God gives me. I think that wisdom, patience and experience comes  with ages (a bit of philosophy :-). 
I love this day when the phone rings since morning, my friends are saying me their congratulations.  My loved ones are attentive to me and my wishes. Today, at the evening we have a small family party.






My congratulations to all friends whose birthday is in January!

How do you prefer to spend your birthday? to have a noisy party or to stay alone?

  4. Happy Birthday dear Nadezda from the other side of the globe!
    Like you, I value every year and am still learning every day!
    I like a small family dinner at home, when my daughter makes a birthday cake. I have a special one later this year, so maybe it will be a little larger.
    Have a wonderful celebration with your family.

  10. Happy birthday Nadezda, I wish you a birthday filled with flowers, or at least photos of them if they're all covered with snow. I'm like you, just like a small family gathering.

  11. Happy birthday, Nadezda! I hope you had a great day.
    My birthday is end of May and I only spend it with my family. I'm not a fan of big parties.

  12. I celebrate how ever I feel that particular year. We often go out to dinner as a treat. My family lives away from me. I have wonderful friends that help celebrate. Often on many different days. How ever schedules work out. I like to spread my birthday all through June, my birthday month. ;) My Son's birthday is tomorrow.
    Happy Birthday to you. I hope you have had the best day. It is always good when family gets together.
