Bubby's birthday is coming up in a week and she'll be 91 years old!
Use the comment box below to post your birthday messages to Bubby, and we'll make sure she reads them all.
In the meantime, we're re-posting a letter someone sent to Bubby back in July of 2004. And yes, it has to do with birthdays.Thanks for reading!
All the best,
My husband forgot my birthday this year. Should I also forget his?
Alone in Jerusalem
Dear Alone in Jerusalem,
I know how you feel to be forgotten on your birthday by your husband but two wrongs do not make a right.
I would send him a card with nothing on it for one thing and a gift box with nothing in it. And if he says anything I would remind him of what he did to me.
And then I would say that now that we have both had our says -- Let's go out and celebrate for both of us. And I bet next year he will not forget at all.
Have a good time. Remember, there are forgetful moments in every life time. Let this be the last in yours.
