A personal example

84th birthday wishes wrapped around a famous quote...for my mother 

Birthday Quotes: Famous Birthday Messages

Mom, on your 84th birthday, I wish all the things everyone who loves and knows you wishes for you (long life, good health, happiness, contentment, optimism, drive, passion, you name it) but I would also like to thank you for all the love, caring and joy you've brought into my life and the lives of Joyce, Shaun and Danna. Most of all, I want to thank you for showing me, through your relentless joy, wonder and passion, what the Samuel Taylor Coleridge quote below truly means and, doubly so, for encouraging me, through the sunny days and storms of my life, to hold fast to its message and live it every moment I can, and do everything I can to spread its joy and wonder to the lives of everyone I hold dear:

"What if you slept, 

And what if, In your sleep, you dreamed,

And what if, In your dream, you went to heaven, 

And there plucked a strange and beautiful flower, 

And what if, when you awoke, you had that flower in you hand, 

Ah, what then?"

Mom, you inspire. You inspire me to ask "what then" to life's possibilities. You inspire everyone you touch. You inspire the uninspired. You inspire us to see the joy of life, not the joylessness of life's struggles. You inspire us to laugh at life's cruel jokes. You inspire us to fall down and get back up again. Even in the depths of your miserable illness, you've gone beyond yourself to remind us that we're on a precious journey to parts unknown, and the destination will be beautiful, no matter where we end up. Love you.

Sometimes, people just don't accept the fact we seniors can be younger at heart.

"This is a wonderful way to celebrate an 80th birthday... I wanted to be 65 again, but they wouldn't let me - Homeland Security."

 ~ Art Buchwald

I just want you to know that I'm secure in the knowledge that you're getting younger every year. 
Happy birthday!  

From one busy person to another, I think you'll appreciate my gift for you.

"Handmade presents are scary because they reveal that you have too much free time."

 ~ Doug Coupland

Yes, I got you a gift card (but to your favorite store). Happy birthday!

This proves that age is an illusion.

"How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?"

 ~ Satchel Paige

See, age doesn't matter. 
Happy birthday!
