Birthday Wishes

“Happy birthday!”
They all say
words to cheer me;
both friends and family, whether
far or near me,
they all say,
“Happy birthday!”


The nicest thing about having a birthday is the steady stream of well wishes from people I know and love. When you have friends, every day is a special day. Thank God for each and every one of them!

  1. So true! ” When you have friends, every day is a special day. ” But when you have friends and it is your birthday and your friends are there to send you warm greetings, then that day is EXTRA special! Happy Birthday, Abigail! ❤
