Friends are precious, sometimes more than we would ever dare suspect… if angels are the best, the brightest, and the most beautiful manifestations of pure love we can imagine, it truly says something that we consider our best friends to be their equal in worth and brilliance. When we express our fondest birthday wishes for a friend, we contact the angels in some small way: the true angels of our own loving natures and the friendship we share. That’s well worth celebrating.

Your life will not be complete without a good friend who is always by your side. This is my wish for you: comfort on difficult days, rainbows to follow the clouds, smiles when sadness intrudes, faith so that you can believe, sunsets to warm your heart, laughter to kiss your lips, courage to know yourself, hugs when spirits sag, patience to accept the truth, beauty for your eyes to see, confidence for when you doubt, friendships to brighten your being, and love to complete your life.


All I want is for you to be happy on your birthday. We get so much by giving to those we love, even if that giving is simply encompassed in our expression of our very best hopes and wishes on behalf of our best friends. In celebrating those we love, we celebrate our shared lives and the time we have spent in the joyful company of our trusted loved ones.  When we put the best future of others ahead of our own good fortune, we demonstrate love. When our best friends do the same, our love is justified.
