My little girl has a birthday on Valentine’s Day. I feel bad for her – every year on her birthday flowers will be overpriced and restaurants overcrowded.
But it could be worse. Having a birthday around Christmas can’t be much fun either. It didn’t seem to bother Josephine though. This spunky little girl with a great sense of humor turned 7, just 3 days before her death.
Birthdays no matter when they are, are important.
Thanks to Facebook, remembering birthdays is now idiot-proof. So make sure to tell friends and family happy birthday, every once in a while, go out of your way to make sure they have a birthday to remember.
Take the day off from work if you can to celebrate your own big day.
After all, we never know how just how many birthdays we might get.
Josephine Gay, 7
Josephine Gay had celebrated her seventh birthday just three days before the massacre. She loved the color purple, and to honor her memory, residents in a new subdivision near Sandy Hook Elementary School hung purple balloons on mailboxes and gates, the Wall Street Journal reports.
