I decided each person should be in charge of their own birthday – including sending out card, planning parties, giving presents. This way they would never forget,  people couldn’t guilt-trip each other (as in “Hey, you forgot your birthday! You don’t care about me!”) — and you’d never know when you might receive an unexpected birthday card or gift.

(Can you tell I struggled with birthday traditions even as a kid?)

It’s my birthday today and I’m thrilled I was born. Like, jumping up and down thrilled. A few years ago, I made this lyric video – my first-ever lyric video – of my birthday song “Congratulations, You Made it This Far!” – the song I wrote for my OWN birthday nearly 2 decades ago.

Please share it, sing it, comment on the YouTube video or below in the comments (or comment in both places – because I LOVE getting comments – each is like a gift – seriously – so what a perfect day to leave one!).  Download the Lyrics, MP3, sheet music – plus FREE Congratulations Birthday Hats and Gift-Wrap right here!

Congratulations,
you MADE it this far!

And Happy Birthday!
