Today is, indeed, my birthday and obviously a day shared by millions around the world including some notable names from history such as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Sir Francis Drake and Lewis Carroll.
I wanted to put it out there because, vanity aside, I do believe everyone should celebrate their special day of the year, even for just a few minutes.
And, of course, it is always nice when their nearest and dearest and other assorted friends and acquaintances spend a minute or two acknowledging the day too.
I am truly thankful for everything I have and will do my best to make this year a mighty and marvellous one.
So if today is your birthday , celebrate.
