I've created this thread for anyone who would like to acknowledge the birthdays of our fellow GTFers - often key milestones in our lives that deserve special recognition and celebration. If you'd like to share something to celebrate a friend's special day or even simply express to them your best wishes, then this is your place!

I'll kick things off with this poem I wrote this morning over breakfast that I would like to dedicate to my friend Jan who turns 18 today - happy birthday mate :hug:

St Andrew's Church


I went for a walk this morning as I often do
Wandering the city streets as the light begins to illuminate the day
I followed paths both familiar and new
And happened upon a grand old church as I passed upon my way.

I stopped to read the inscription there on the wall
Engraved in dignified script I traced its gilt letters lightly with my finger
As I read the words, involuntarily, I let my hand fall
And summoned by the responsibilities of the day started off, unable to linger.

Lost in my thoughts, I continued on my way
And as the sun’s bright rays began to shine before my feet, dispelling shadow
A truth dawned upon me to brighten my day
A revelation about great achievements and recognition of deeds now or long ago.

I’d likely never have a dedication to me – dead words written in cold, hard grey stone
About some achievement that I’d complete or maybe start
But this day, through sharing a kindly spoken word, a touch or gentle embrace of my own
I can create something warm and alive that may grow unseen in another’s heart.

Have an ever so nice birthday, Jan!

Adam (omygodlol) turns 18 today (keeping in mind that it is already the 31st in Australia :D ) and while I don't have a poem or a drawing or anything for you mate, I wanted to wish you the very best for today (and always) :hug: You've been a great friend to me for a long time and I hope you have something special planned and that you get (deservedly) spoiled :D You only turn 18 once and I hope this birthday will be one that brings you lots of fond memories :hug:

Thanks to the both of you. Although, I'm not quite of drinking age in America yet. I'm only two decades old today ;P

OT: Happy Birthday Henning, you sexy fluffy beast. <3

Hmm, not really. We use the word mate more when speaking to people we don't know or don't like. It's weird.
I think I did you proud, I drank a litre of jacks, a litre of absolute, and a 700ml of sky vodka - plus jelly shots and I did two 'lick sip suck'-s with tequila. Needless to say, my memory is quite limited of the night.
