Engraved Birthday River Stones

Someone near you celebrates a birthday every day.  Because birthdays are special, someone you know is probably celebrating their birthday today.  Birthday wishes are different than Christmas or Hanukkah Greetings because they stretch out throughout the entire year.  Only the folks born on February 29 must wait an extra three years to celebrate their birthdays.  Most of them celebrate on March 1, even though it is not really their birthday.  It seems unfair.  I think there should be a nationwide celebration every leap year for those that had to wait so long.

How will you celebrate your birthday during 2017?  Will you be at work or will you get the day off?  As I see it, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and birthdays are time to reflect on how fortunate we are to have our friends and families.  Those should happy days without conflicts or arguments.  Gifts are nice, however when we get older, being together is more important.  However, always send greeting cards or Greeting Stones to show that you remember and that you care.
