Happy Birthday To Me!!!

Today is my birthday, and I'll blog about it if I want too!!!! Lol... just kidding... well kinda. Whenever my birthday flows around I get a little reminiscent of my childhood and my older sister Oona, who passed away in 2002 from Cancer. My older sister loved Happy Birthday To You by Dr. Suess... it was her favorite book. It became a staple in our household, something our Dad read to her every year on her born day  Since she was older then me, it became the default birthday story we all were told. And it puts a smile on my face every time I hear it. I have continued the tradition with my own son, and no matter what I do with him on his birthday I always read that book to him on his special day. Last year I found a great clip on Youtube of a father reading the book to his daughter, and it completely broke my heart and made me happy at the same time. It was beautiful to see him sharing this story with his child, and reminded me alot of my dad speaking to me & my sister. Click after the jump to see this great video. Happy Birthday To Me!!!!!!

"Today You are You, This is truer than true. There is NO ONE alive that is You-er than You!!!" --- Dr Suess
