Your friend’s birthday comes only once a year, so be sure to be with him/her on this day. And whether or not you spend the day with your friend, you can always send a few angels their way to brighten their day and impart your best birthday wishes. These angels are cherubim — child angels — and they carry with them the message of eternal love and the youthful exuberance and joy of the divine, as expressed through the celebration of one’s life.
Social media shoutouts may be easy, but nothing beats an old-fashioned birthday card via snail mail or hand delivery. The best thing about a homemade birthday card is that it can be tailored to the recipient’s interests and for non-milestone birthdays, like 36 or 68. Even better, you don’t have to go out to shop for one at the last minute. These homemade birthday cards are the perfect way to show how much you know your loved one, and pair great with birthday gift ideas!
In good humor and all in fun, we praise our best friend by ironically honoring ourselves. But self-effacement is the real name of the game here. We honor our loved ones by elevating them even above ourselves in the scheme of our lives, and by wishing them all the joy they deserve on the anniversary of their birth. Thus do we say “You’re a good friend to me and I wish we could always be together for the rest of our lives.”
When your friend is feeling down, be sure to comfort him/her. Sometimes it’s not enough to simply wish them a happy birthday or send along your best wishes, sometimes more is required. Like letting them know that you are always on their side, and will always be in their corner no matter how rough life might get. That is the true mark of real friendship: not in birthday presents, but in birthday “presence.”
We love homemade cards, when I was younger and to a degree still now, I used to make ALL birthday cards I sent myself. There is nothing quite like a Birthday Card DIY.. and I think you will particularly love this easy pop up birthday card diy! It is a 3d Cake Card – which would also be fantastic as a DIY Wedding Card or for any other celebration where you have CAKE! It is so sweet, you almost want to eat it! As you know, we have MANY greeting cards that kids can make – especially a number of “ostentatiously” Valentines Day Cards for Kids To Make, but I think these “love cards” would also make GREAT birthday cards, so do check those out too!!

For me, your birthday is one of the most special days for the whole year. Every ending is also a new beginning, and the year is no exception. Age may just be a number, but it brings wisdom and the joy of nostalgic memory. Every circuit we make around the sun is another year of opportunity and the joy of sharing our lives with those we love, especially our very best of friends. So a birthday is also a doorway into our own future, through which we can step together, in love.
