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.


Cover Verse: An Irish Blessing May the road rise up to meet you, May the wind be always at your back, May the sun shine warm upon your face And the rains fall soft upon your fields, And, until we meet again, May God hold you in the hollow of His hand. Inside Verse: God bless you with the joy of His presence and the gift of His love on St. Patrick's Day and always.
A birthday is a time for you to sit back, relax, and enjoy, my friend. Every birthday we experience is another milestone of the distance we’ve traveled in the previous 365 days and the work we’ve done. All we have accomplished, gained, and lost in the previous year is lamented and celebrated on the anniversary of our birth. But it should also be a time of personal reflection and, hopefully, the perfect opportunity to celebrate and take pride in a year well lived, and a job well done.
Thank the Lord for all the wonderful blessings that you have received for your birthday. In our communion with the divine spirit, we acknowledge the greatness of creation and the joy of our loving friendship as we travel together down life’s ever-shifting roads and highways. But we have faith in the things that truly matter, which includes our friendship and the plan of a benevolent creator. Naturally we would wish the Lord’s mercy and benevolence to grace the life of our best friend on his or her birthday.
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.

This is one of the best birthday wishes for a friend you can send, because it invokes the spirit of the divine to rain down blessings upon your best friend for the entirety of the year ahead. It also wishes them happiness, but greatest of all it wishes them the blessing of good health. We so often forget how health trouble can interfere with our lives; when we aren’t sick or struggling it’s easy to forget how important our health truly is.  That makes this an important birthday wish.

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.”

You're the most important part of my world, and you always will be. I love you. Happy Birthday
