Among the great symbols of life and hope in the world, the sea remains one of the most powerful. Ever constant but always changing, powerful, vast, and beautiful, the ocean is a suitable image to mentally conjure when one imagines what best symbolizes the fixed-but-fluid universe. The stars are another great symbol of life and the universe, so it’s comforting that there are stars in the sea as well… starfish. All is connected. Maybe two best friends can be imagined as a pair of starfish on a beach, under a sunset sky, facing the starlit night together. We make wishes on stars of all kinds and hope they come true for our loved ones on their birthdays.

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.
You deserve to have a lot of happiness on your birthday. We love the pretty cards and sentiments we encounter, but they mask a deeper truth. Even if we get distracted and misdirected by other matters in our lives, we can still express our love and appreciation by assuring our best friend that no matter our circumstances we always wish the best for them.
Life can be beautiful, but it can also be brief. No one ever knows how much time we all have to share with one another. Your best friend means a lot to you, which is why you should always want them to enjoy their life. Every day can be an adventure, and there’s literally no time to waste. The world is so big, it’s nice to share it with the people you love.
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.
