Hi, I saw on the November birthday thread that I started that you asked if this is a new thing and the answer is YES!!! My birthday was in October and someone posted a Happy Birthday thread to me and it made me feel so special. I wanted others to feel the same way that thread made me feel on my special day. Since my Mom died in September, it was my first birthday without her in my life and I can't tell you how it made me feel to have my "friends" here remember me. So I'll be posting a "Joyous and Jolly Happy Birthday" thread in a few days for those special December friends. Nancy B.
