3 Ways to Celebrate My Birthday

Erin & I celebrate our shared birthday last year at Lucha Libre Taco Shop, June 2nd 2009

So, today I  turn 34. Dang I am old. Here’s how long I’m going to lament about getting older. (One mississippi, two mississippi, three mississippi.)

That’s enough self-pity. I feel better now.

Now back to being bossy.

I’m not much of a birthday guy. I like other people’s birthdays. I love my children’s birthdays. But I don’t really get into my birthday. Maybe I have daddy issues? Maybe I am not over getting a Grover birthday cake when I was 5 when I really wanted a Cookie Monster cake? Or maybe I’m just socially awkward? Who cares… let’s talk about what you can do for me on my birthday.

Three ways that you can celebrate my birthday which will make me smile.

  1. Do something, anything, to impact your community for Jesus. Bring a can to your church. Here are 10 more ideas.
  2. Give to my Haiti fund. $5, $10, $20. If you aren’t able to go please make it a bit easier for Kristen, Erin, and I to be Good News in Port-au-Prince this July. We’ve raised about $750 of the $2500 we need.
  3. Meet me at Triple Crown Pub tonight at 7. A dive bar is a weird place to ask you to show up, I know. Here’s the fun bit. Every penny of profit for whatever you order will go to the Haiti Fund. That’s right boys-n-girls. The Triple Crown by be a dive bar– but the owner has a big heart and is willing to make it easy for you to give.

    I can’t meet you at the pub, but I can contribute to your Haiti fund. Happy Birthday, Adam!

    I can’t believe that it was 4 years ago that I was at your surprise party that Kristen threw for you back in Romeo. Seems like yesterday and now you are in SD and I am in Cincy. Craziness!

    Dive bars that give to Haiti?! I will take you out for a pint when we move down to SD in August as long as you teach me your SD dive bar knowledge.

    We’re going to miss you and Erin and Kristen while you’re gone, but I can’t wait to hear the stories when you get back. Happy Birthday, Adam.
