When I was a little girl, like any child, I would get super excited before my birthday. It was always a very special day – a day when I felt really spoiled, and really special. My mom used to buy me candies or bake Russian cookies so I could take them to school and share them with my friends. I remember my friends’ eyes and faces would light up with joy showing me how much these little sweets meant to them. I couldn’t wait to get to school with my plate full of these delicious cheer bombs sprinkled with love and excitement. It was as if I was given special permission to say “I love you” and “I am thankful to have you in my life” without being laughed at or called a sissy.
