Share Your World And Truthful Tuesday, 5/15-16/23

Doing both Share Your World and Truthful Tuesday together seems to have worked out well last week, so I’m back with it again this week.

First, Share Your World, most of which has to do with children that we don’t have…

Children aside, do you celebrate your birthday/anniversary or is it just a normal day for you? We celebrate them, usually with lunch either at a restaurant, or more frequently now with food we order via DoorDash, and there’s usually a cake involved. Other than that, no real hoopla…

Do/did you always give your child a birthday party when they were young? No way to answer, because we didn’t have kids.

If your child was born on Christmas Day (or a few days either side of the 25th), did they have a ‘half birthday’ in June, two presents/celebrations, or something else? My brother Jim was born December 11, two weeks to the day before Christmas, which I guess was far enough away that we had separate celebrations for both. Even if he were born on Christmas, I don’t think we would have had a separate celebration, or if we did it would be the day before or after.

Would you prefer to give your child a party, or take them and a few friends on a special outing? Again, no experience. I’d leave it up to the kid.

And now, Truthful Tuesday…

Do you forgive and forget, remember but dismiss it as unimportant or does it depend on the circumstances?

I try very hard to forgive and forget. It’s not always easy. I don’t want people to say about me "He buries a grudge, but never forgets where the grave marker is."

Tally-ho and away we go!
See you next week with a brand new show!

  1. I might forgive but I never forget. Maybe that’s wrong but if someone wronged me, I’ll still be civil but will always keep their wrongdoing in the back of my mind.


  2. I don’t know about forgive…I will let it go be abuse I will outweigh the positive another negative. If the negatives outweigh…I don’t have time in my life for people who are just mean and dirty like my dad’s brother who treated my mom so horribly and cunningly took the house and business away from us. Sided with the people when they sued my mom for a door knob, light fixture snd shelving. He’s dead now but his kids were with him and tried to ruin my reputation and my brother’s spreading rumors we were lazy and taking money. Why would I want to be a part of that. I never forget….keeps me on guard but there are many people that deserve forgiveness.
    I don’t have kids but we celebrate our birthdays and buy gifts snd have a xake. We go out to dinner with friends too in fact, I celebrate my friends birthdays too. In May, I have 8 birthdays!
    My mo. Always made our birthdays special and if we were born around Christmas, I know she would have made it special.
    My mom would have a small party, usually a couple of friends later, she would take me and my friend to Crystal Beach Amusement was do much fun.


  3. Regarding birthdays – near – Christmas, My birthday is December 20th. All my childhood I lived with, “now remember, this present is for your birthday and Christmas.” My favorite story is the time my Mother made a huge deal out of this present I was going to get from my Grandparents. Serious finger wagging was going on about not expecting a Christmas present because this present was huge and expensive, Of course, being a kid, I’m thinking Schwinn bike. Guess what it was. A bedroom set!!! I can remember my disappointment like it was yesterday.

    1. I can just imagine Walkie saying that. Was it her parents or Hicks’s that were giving it to you?

      Bitsy’s birthday is close to Christmas as well, and so is Jinx’s, if I remember correctly.


      1. It was Dad’s parents. When you think about it, it was really a present to my parents. I like to joke about it, but it was greatly appreciated by me as the years went by; just not when I was 10 or 11. The dresser is still being used by one of our grandsons. You are right about Bits and Jinx being in December.


    1. Fabulous Auntie Jill started a “Santa Claus” party almost 60 years ago, and it passed through my generation. Now we have a third generation doing it. Amazing how things like that take on a life of their own…

      1. How wonderful! When my siblings had their kids, we bought for them at Christmas and silly naff presents for the adults with a price tag of £1. It was a lot of fun trying to ‘out naff’ each other!
