Remembering Birthdays


--by jaya, posted Nov 4, 2007
I have this habit of remembering birthdays of all the people I know, whether they're my friends or foes.  Birthdays are the days when we can make the other person feel that they are really special and making them happy is my motive.

Last August 6, it was one of my friends birthday and I remembered and sent  her an SMS text message and also spoke to her.   She was stunned and surprised to hear my voice even though I hadn't spoken to her in four month or so.  She was too happy and said that she dint expect my wishes.. and that I had made her feel really special.

I know I didn't do anything big but that little phone call made all the difference. Birthday was hers but I was the one left feeling happy!
