Today Biscuit and Gravy turn one year old. It seems hard to believe that they have been with us almost a full year and that they have grown so much. This brother and sister duo are quite the pair and have endless energy every single day.

Not all cultures celebrate birthdays, and yet for those that do it is a very special day. It is a chance to celebrate the person and let them know how much they mean in your life. People do all sorts of things to celebrate, things like cake, ice cream, parties, favorite dinners, and even an occasional surprise to make the birthday person laugh and cry.

Birthdays are a way to mark time. They remind us why our physical condition has changed and why we are so blessed to be alive for another day. Birthdays let us celebrate who we are and how far we have come in our years of life. And birthdays remind us to be thankful for all we have been given.

The simple act of wishing someone happy birthday forces us to think of something other than ourselves and focus on what they want, who they are, and how they have made our lives so much better. Be it a text message or a full blown surprise party wishing someone happy birthday is a very special way to tell them how much they are loved.

So happy birthday Biscuit & Gravy, we look forward to many more years of your antics and adventures.
