According to Hobbit-lore, 33 is a very significant birthday as it signifies coming of age. Hobbits reach their adulthood at 33 and typically throw big parties and instead of receiving gifts, they give gifts to others. How novel.
We can learn something from Hobbits as they celebrate their birthdays. Hobbits are happy folk. They enjoy drinking and even more so eating, typically indulging in 6 meals a day such as breakfast, second breakfast, elvensies, luncheon, tea, dinner, and supper. Hobbist have wonderful senses of humor, invented pipe weed, and are very welcoming to other Hobbits. Doesn't that sound nice?
So, on my 33rd birthday, I am buying everyone I know a brand new car. :) I wish. In this next year, it is my goal to give back. It is apparent that I have been blessed in my life by family, friends, and health and I want to live a good, happy, and hobbit-like life. One filled with family and friends and general festive-ness (plus food and drinks sound amazing). Thank you to everyone - my dear DT, my parents, my sisters, my family and friends for the gifts you have given to me throughout my life. My gift to you is to be the best Iris Took to you - to BE there for you when you need me and when you don't.
Let's start with cake though...
