Thank you for the kudos.  I was concerned that my post would be misunderstood.

If I could invite anyone to my birthday party I would invite Queen Mary of Teck.  After reading her biography I would love to discuss her views on Edwardian England, the abdication and her role during one of the most discussed times in history.  I would also invite Elizabeth, the Queen Mother.

I would invite my late husband, parents, grandparents, siblings if I did not believe they were in a better place, but I do. There are even more I would add to this list because I have had the wonderful life experiences of having people in my life that have brought much joy, love, happiness, wisdom... Because I know they are in a better place and would not trade where they are, I simply look forward to the time when I can celebrate with them in a celebration that would bring all of us more joy than any birthday party I could plan; in Heaven with Jesus. Until such time, I enjoy the wonderful celebrations my children and others plan each year for me. I told my youngest daughter, I don't know how they can top last year's birthday celebration with my name in lights on one of the busiest streets in downtown Atlanta.

I was a writer for Corporate America. Now I teach writing and literature at a college. Good guess!

Your brief post makes me think that you either are, or should be a writer.
