 “WHAT TO WRITE…” in Family Birthday Cards (7.16)

What Could Be Better Than a Birthday?

Cake. Ice Cream. Balloons. Presents. Laughter. Smiles. Fun. And the one day in 365 that’s all about us! Does it get any better than that?

From young to old–and since time immemorial–people have celebrated birthdays in all kinds of unique and wonderful ways. But whether we like fanfare or some quiet time just to dream, we all deserve to have a day that’s simply perfect for us–and to be reminded how special we are and the difference we make in this world. And–if we happen to be family–perhaps even more so.

I Want to Tell Them…

Sometimes the people we care about most can be the last to know it!  Sometimes we’re just better at doing something to show our love than we are at talking about it. Maybe we’re shy about our feelings or we’re just not sure how to express them. But we all know how much even the smallest compliment, expressed from the heart, can mean.

…But How Do I Say It?  

Here at bluemountain.com, we have everything from simple wishes to words of appreciation, warm compliments, or love-filled thoughts for the ones you’re closest to. So have a look…and once you’ve chosen the perfect card, you can use some of the idea-starters below to help you add your own personal touch, making it into a keepsake that will always be treasured.

Some Things to Think About

What is it about your family that makes it unique, special, and wonderful?
And how does this person contribute to that?
What is your favorite thing about this person?
What are some of your best memories that include them?
How have they’ve touched, inspired, or influenced you?
Is there something they’ve said or done that made all the difference?
Something special you want to thank them for?
What does this person mean to you?

Making It Personal

Now you’ve got more ideas than you need, don’t you?! Time to choose your favorite ones and, in your own words, write what’s in your heart. Relax. Smile. Keep it simple. Make it a celebration of the unique and special person they are, and you’ll make their day–and, just maybe, their whole year!
