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.

A friend is someone who will always stay with you through the good times and the bad times, so be sure to spend your time with him/her on his/her birthday. More than that, a best friend is someone whose actions and support have proved they deserve all the best things that life can give, and anything their heart desires! We wish our best friends wonderful, celebratory birthdays full of the very best kind of pleasant surprises.

Birthday cards can be especially useful for those companies working through a hard time. Greeting cards are an inexpensive and sincere form of gratitude that can boost morale around the office. You'd be surprised what a small gesture can do in the midst of much larger business obstacles. We've written about how celebrating office birthdays can lead to increased productivity.
There’s just something about a paper greeting card that never loses its charm for some of us. We like to hold the greeting in our hands, feel the crisp paper, run our fingers over the words and pictures as if we were trying to absorb the essence of the message. Most of all we like to see the handwritten notes and the signatures of our loved ones. While ecards may be viewed instantly and forgotten over time, printed cards can be saved, cherished and shared for years. Although ecards have replaced printed cards in many instances as the more convenient, inexpensive and quick mode of wishing one another, printed cards still retain that special quality that electronic messages cannot convey effectively.
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.
