With every passing year, I am more and more thankful that my mom gave birth to me on this national holiday. I relish the fact that I’ve never had to go to work on my actual birthday. There are parades, barbecues, and fireworks to round out the celebration. Who could think of a better day to be brought into this world?
My favorite part of the day is enjoying special red, white, and blue shortcakes! I have them every year in lieu of a traditional birthday cake.
