It’s my birthday and I love Facebook on my birthday. I love getting so many birthday wishes from so many different parts of my life. With three words and a comma — Happy Birthday, Karen — more than 50 people have taken me back to high school, back to daily snow falls in Rochester, NY; to my first day on a golf course, to my second go round as a undergrad college student and to today, where I teach at a terrific school with terrific students. And all before 9 o’clock in the morning!
Now, at 1:30 p.m., I have received more than 100 birthday wishes and — trust me, I’m not lying when I say this — each one is special.
Now, my mom is not on Facebook — I’ll get a traditional birthday card from her. And it will be the most special part of my day today.
I hope everyone’s birthday is as special as mine has been.
