My birthday story

Yippee!! My birthday is on 1st Aug and it's a Saturday this time. No office, free time means more fun actually. I always love to celebrate my birthday since my childhood. During my school time, I used to call my school mates at home on my birthday. My mother used to cook delicious food ( Chole, Puri, Kheer etc.. ) for us. I used to get new cloths and that was all about celebrating a birthday. No concept of cake at all. Then my little sister started demanding for cake so cake cutting was allowed only on my sister’s birthday. After I got married, when my birthday came I was so excited and curious how my husband is going to surprise me. Mr N loves writing and he used to write his thoughts almost every day that time. Somehow I got to read what he was planning for my birthday. I was in seventh heaven. He had properly created a list of items which he wanted to do. And that list had things started from morning till night. I thought I was going to have a blast this birthday.

Finally it was 12 AM night. Mr N got cake and a card. He didn’t invited any of our friends because he wanted to celebrate it with only two of us. WOW!! I was on cloud nine and at the same time snoopy about the card. As I opened the card I thought to see it again. It was an “Anniversary Card” :) . He brought an anniversary card in place of a birthday card. I didn’t ask anything to him thinking he might feel bad. My birthday morning started with a rose. Again it surprised me (I knew it because I have already read his planning list). I went to my office and after reaching I realized something in my office bag. It was a color box. I love crafting so he gifted me a set of awesome color pencils. Everything was so well timed. After my office I reached home and pinned the card at pin board of our room. When he came from office and noticed that it was an anniversary card, he came to me laughing and told me that instead of getting birthday card, he brought anniversary card. I then accepted that I had noticed it that time only when he gave it to me. It was really funny!! Actually he was little apprehensive about getting birthday card for me so he asked for help to one of his married friend. They both went to the card shop and with his friend’s help Mr N started selecting card. He was so busy in reading the card matter of inside that he didn’t noticed what was written in front, “Anniversary Wishes”. Whole day went very well and with known surprises.

Whenever I remember this incident, it makes me smile and feel that “Love is blind” :) ..
