I like the fact that your Normal Birthday was filled with preesnts. Yet this one was not filled with many. I am even getting to the point on my Journey to Not expect one thing of material possession. I care little about even parties and I used to Love having the More the better, Not at this point in my life. More work and that bit of stress even for those gatherings. It is amazing how the Mind change occurs and I find that my Calm and Spiritual Life develops more and more. It sounds like you are doing great things. I enjoy your posts. As you are just beginning as I. However, I have known for many many years I dont like alot of things, but went with the NORM as what I was suppose to do. Not any more.
