The custom in his family is to celebrate
birthday anniversaries for a month or
thirty-days or thirty-one or twenty-eight
or twenty-nine depending on the month
in which a family member was born. So
he read this really nice meditation about
the importance of birthdays and thought
that he would forward it to his daughter
who was two weeks into a twenty-nine
day celebration because she was born
in a leap year. Shortly after forwarding it,
he got this response: I really love this!
Love – “Thank you for being born and
being among us.” He sent it; she got it;
both felt really good about it fourteen
days into a twenty-nine-day celebration.
Oh, what the heck, he thought, the kid
should have thirty-one days.
