Birthday Greetings for ever and for all.
Birthday greetings from friends and relatives are pleasant surprises to receive.
An opportunity for the sender to express invaluable emotions,
to convey relationship is precious.
Right words and colors are chosen,
to strengthen the bonds and to bridge the gap.
It should brighten up a smile and a cheer,
to immortalize the moment, for the recipients.
Remembering birthdays is a hobby to some,
greeting beloved friends is a commitment to some,
some do it sincerely, in anticipation of nothing in return,
for it gives them the joy and pleasure, to cheer,
some one, in some corner of the world,
on a special day like a birthday.
Time and tide wait for none, we are swept apart by tides,
while time fades our memory, reach out and touch, or else,
there will be only be distance and silence.
Birthday greetings are meant to heal the past,
forge the two to live in the present,
and help to dream the future together.
Exchange of greetings is a successful interaction,
and should be so, as it acknowledges the existence of one another.
Birthdays come and go, bringing joy ever after ever,
and greetings keep friends together ever after ever.
For kids it is fun and party time,
as they grow, they feel they are growing;
it brings anxiety, more responsibility for themselves and others.
They start noticing changes in them, as well as in others.
Many dread leaving the Childhood fun,
and the mischievous 20’s and the naughty 30’s behind,
many dread to disclose the birthday, to hide the age.
There are many milestone greeting cards, to catch up with age,
some are funny, some are philosophical, a few naughty ones too,
all meant to tease, cheer, refresh memories of the past,
to bring forward the future, “The Hope”.
Hope sits eternal in the breast of a man and leaves him not until he leaves it.
A classmate of mine receives birthday greetings,
every year, year after year, since many years.
He acknowledges the greetings ever.
My greetings bring cheers to him,
he looks forward for it, says his wife ever.
This is very special to him and his family,
my commitment to him is to keep this going for ever.
Greeting cards were expensive once,
some were snobbish to select the best and the costliest,
to reflect their mood, love and affection, only to a selected few.
Now they have become inexpensive,
free for all, as easy as 123, thanks to the internet.
Why not include a few more friends and relatives;
what is needed is a will, to wish some one on special occasion like Birthday.
Aging is a natural, irreversible, inevitable process.
Let us all age with grace and dignity.
The objective of writing this is to highlight the significance of wishing friends and relatives on a special occasion like ‘Birthdays’. You can change every broken relationship one at a time by sending ‘Birthday Greetings’.
E-cards have become the order of the day, replacing the old conventional greeting cards, which consumed more time. Selecting, buying and posting involved money and time. Hence it was practiced amongst very close inner most circles of friends and family members. Priorities and prejudices played a major role in deciding who gets what!
In olden days fabric greeting cards were sent to beloved ones. The recipients sew the patches bearing the greeting messages on to a fabric matrix to form a memory quilt. The greeting messages are thereby not merely discarded, as is the case with conventional greeting cards formed of card stock, but are saved and incorporated into a useful article. This suggests the significance and the value attributed to these sentimental practices.
It was also a practice to recycle the old greeting cards to implement the 3R’s principle.” Reduce, reuse, and recycle”. Many cards were manufactured with recycled material. These cards were also a source of collection of donations to many organizations. All these objectives are once again incorporated in e-cards also. E-cards are a fantastic way to send that someone special a caring, loving message.
Schedule all your birthday e-cards in one sitting and you’ll no longer need to fret about forgetting a birthday.
If you care to make a difference, you can always send a birthday greeting to spread Love and laughter, in an exemplary manner.
“It is believed that no two human beings have ever lived under one roof with out any differences of
opinion”. This is a quote form my father-in-law. If these differences are not nipped in the bud, they become a monstrous beast. No truce has ever been achieved in silence. It takes a lot of persuasive effort to bring compromise between two parties. The best way to ease tension and reduce misunderstanding is to send a birthday greeting. One step at a time with sincerity will help regain the trust and the tenderness that has been missing for ages due to difference of opinion or misunderstanding. Some one has to bell the cat. Don’t wait for the other person to start.
Why not try it yourself and be a leader and a motivator. The best way is to treat everyone as a friend as no other relationship is greater than friendship. Every father has to treat his kids as friends and between husband and wife mutual trust, tenderness and love can be accomplished by treating one another as a Friend. ‘Friendship is above all the relationships’ and can be rejuvenated with a sincere birthday greeting card.
This has been written in honor of all the friendship offered by me in recent times.
