Friends... how is it going? I was a bit busy arranging Fred's birthday on May 18th. It was real fun arranging the birthday party, probably because managing birthday parties and weddings are part of my dream project. It's very much like pitching practice in the bullpen before a game. Well, I have been looking for such an opportunity for some time, and I did it with my fullest dedication. Christine was there with me and we did not allow Uncle Fred to interfere with the plans. Starting with the birthday party decorations, we did everything and it was a perfect birthday party. Christine's birthday gift idea for Fred was a big success, too. Uncle Fred liked that 6-pack sampler of California Microbrews. I knew that it would keep Fred warm around the campfire on his birthday. It did!
That morning I suddenly remembered that it was Tim's birthday, too, on May 18th. I really had no time to choose a birthday greeting for him. He's in Houston and I was really worried about how to bridge those few hundred miles to reach out to him with my special birthday message. I want to share my experience with you guys. I did not know that this would be another blast, but I just sent a couple of online greeting cards... not the typical birthday ones, simply a couple of flower greetings. All I did was personalize those cards with my heartfelt wishes on his birthday. He hit me back with an email in return saying, "Mike, thanks for the greetings. This was the best way that someone wished me a happy birthday this year."
Here are those cards that I picked. I sent him the first two. Send greeting cards online with these beautiful online greeting cards for your friends' birthdays. I am sure they will like them.
