It's time to party and celebrate,
A wonderful day this is going to be.
We figured you’d want to forget it,
But no way we’d allow that, would we?
So what if you’re getting older?
We all are and thats just how it is.
Embrace all the changes that come age,
All the good and the bad, no need for a quiz.
So forget all about the pot belly,
The wrinkles, the balding and grey hair.
Its time to accept the inevitable,
And allow your friends to throw you a shindig affair.
A birthday so wonderful needs to be celebrated,
We want to make sure you follow through.
Today on this happy occasion,
We're here to say Happy Birthday to you.
Time To Celebrate
Poet: Julie Hebert, ©2011
Please allow me to tell you who's great,
As that person I talk of is you.
Today on your birthday I feel the need,
To announce all the great things you do.
You love to help others who need you,
And spend time with family and friends.
You hate to leave things unfinished,
So you’re always finishing up the loose ends.
Even today on your birthday,
Instead of celebrating and having fun,
You’d rather work hard with your business,
And not finish until you see the midnight sun.
I’m here to tell you to its time to celebrate,
As you’re work will always be there.
But there’s only so many days you call your birthday,
Let go out with not even a care.
"The happiness of life is made up of minute fractions - the little, soon forgotten charities of a kiss or a smile, a kind look or heartfelt compliment."
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
"When you walk into a room, a healthy, beautiful smile is incredibly important."
"Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy."
"It takes a lot of work from the face to let out a smile, but just think what good smiling can bring to the most important muscle of the body - the heart."
"Reacting to the world with a smile instead of a curse, a wave instead of the middle finger, will actually help you live longer."
Russell Simmons, Super Rich
"Progress always involves risks. You can't steal second base and keep your foot on first.
Frederick B. Wilcox
"It does not take much strength to do things, but it requires great strength to decide on what to do."
"The grass may be greener on the other side of the fence, but artificial turf usually is."
Donald Neviaser The Inner View
"I've grown to realize the joy that comes from little victories is preferable to the fun that comes from ease and the pursuit of pleasure."
