Today is the day when everyone reminds you you’re a year older and
we all pretend to be happy about it.

You’re great and even greater on your birthday.
Roses are red,  Violets are blue,  Sugar is definitely not as sweet as you !
Happy   Birthday
The secret to staying young is to live honestly,  eat slowly,
and lie about your age

Going old happens; Growing up is a choice.

You’re still young but I just wanted to remind you that
you’re a year older than you were last year.
Statistics show that people who live longer have more birthdays.
It is said that those who have the most birthdays, live the longest.

Year after year, you count the candles on your birthday
and realize that candles cost more than the cake ?
Every year on your birthday, you get a chance to start new.
It takes a long time to become young.

I bet you’re totally over-the-moon excited that you are now another year older
and another year closer to collecting  senior citizen grocery shopping discount !

You’re getting closer to the age
when the government sends you money every month.
Count the age, not the wrinkles you have.
Count the blessings and wonderful experiences you’ve had,
not the mistakes you’ve made.
Forget the past, look forward to the future,
for the best things are yet  to come.
You have most of life’s firsts to look forward to,
and a whole mess of early mistakes to leave behind.

May all your birthday wishes come true -- except for the illegal ones !
Have a wonderful,  happy,  healthy birthday now and forever.
