what I learned from waking up with the flu on my birthday

spending time with someone you care deeply for matters more than having a party

nausea is the worst

handmade gifts are the best

birthdays can be rescheduled

the present moment cannot be rescheduled

mama’s chicken soup is better than every other food

birthdays don’t have to mean quite so much

feeling taken care of means so much

one year older doesn’t feel very different

not having the flu will be my belated birthday gift

gratitude gratitude gratitude
