I don't know if he actually remembered or he knew because FB told him.....
Today is my birthday and I wake up to a FB msg from my father wishing me a Happy Birthday. He friend requested me just before Christmas, we haven't talked on FB except when he firs joined.
We have been estranged since I was about 13. We've had the odd run ins over the years but no relationship, nothing. He is a violent man and the last time I saw him the police had to take me out of his house because he was beating his girlfriend and when I tried to leave he blocked me and basically held me hostage until the police showed up when my mother called them and told them of the situation.
Even with how much I've hated him over the years I have always wondered if he thought about me on my birthday....or any day for that matter. He's never once called me on my birthday, even when I went with him on the weekends..if my birthday fell on a day during the week....he never called me.
So it kind of bothers me that he wished me a happy birthday today and makes me think, it was FB's doing.
Ah well....just a random thought.
