Although it may seem like a very trivial thing... I've decided after this birthday- the big 25- that a simple phone call on your birthday is really worth a lot more than one might think. Texting and Facebook messages take little to no effort. Granted, better to send that then nothing at all, but a phone call...the value in that simple act is almost unmeasurable. My resolve from here on out is to create a list of all my family and friends birthdays and to send them cards and/or call them on their birthday- not after, but on their birthday. Will I be able to do it? I hope so. I'm terrible at remembering birthdays. But it really means a lot when someone does, and it just requires a little extra effort.
Happy birthday me. (I'm off to a good start, at least I remembered my own birthday)
