Shouldn't every day of the year be like the opening day of any baseball season?

"You always get a special kick on opening day, no matter how many you go through. You look forward to it like a birthday party when you're a kid. You think something wonderful is going to happen."

~ Joe DiMaggio

And every day should be like your special day. Hope you have a wonderful birthday and year.

There is so much to look forward to...

This quote reminds me that you can have everything, even with practically nothing.

"On her birthday, my seven-year-old daughter will say that she wants these big cakes and certain expensive toys as presents, and I can't say no to her. It would just break my heart. But when I was little, for birthdays we just played outside and we were happy if we got any cake."

~ Goran Ivanisevic

Cake and all our loved ones would be perfect. Hope you have both in abundance on your birthday!
