Firstly, thank you all so much for the unbirthday wishes....nothing like having an ordinary day turn extra special!!!!
I have a few more reflections on the day that i would like to share. Master knows when my birthday is....in March. A few years after we met, when we were at the point of celebrating such events, i made sure to start hinting way ahead of time. I learned a very long time ago that hinting is better that regretting. ( Master would replace hinting with telling). The last few years i have not had to hint, and He has never forgotten. I think this was a case of.....if the phone, or computer, or internet says it is so,.....it must be. He saw it on His phone, and without further thought, He put a plan in place. Altho, i was confused the night before when we were chatting, Master thought i was trying to pull His leg.
It also struck me, as i was thinking about it, how differently this would have played out before i met Master or even when i first met Him. Let me set the scene for you:
I walk in and He wishes me a Happy Birthday......I immediately, start a rant...full of sarcasm. How could He be so stupid, He should know by now, doesn't He know how to program His phone correctly...etc. When i was done ranting, i would have probably said....it is not my birthday, save your celebration for when it is...and walked out with a slamming of the door. Yep.....that is probably what would have happened. Not pretty, but sadly, accurate.
Instead, we had a good laugh and a wonderful afternoon......there are many benefits to TTWD....and having a wonderful non-birthday celebration is one of them. The icing on the cake....i can look forward to another celebration when March rolls in:)!
Hope you are all staying warm and having a good weekend...
