I can work all day of the week and still be satisfied with whatever life has in store. I am thankful for all that I have received and more.
Birthdays, anniversaries and special occassion should be celebrated in a way to make the person special and be acknowledged. A little effort goes a long way.
But sometimes it makes you wonder why the effort is poorly executed? That only the executioner can answer.
If you want things you gotta work hard for it right and no excuses. But then again people are different.
