A lot of people value birthdays. To some, it’s a means of mere celebration, while to some it’s a means of counting their blessings, having family and friends around, reuniting with long lost friends and so on.
Whatever you feel it is, birthdays remains an important part of our lives. That’s when we truly get to know that we are not ageing backwards when we truly appreciate God for everything we have and what we hope to have.
Birthdays make us get serious with what we need to do and not just think that we still have all the time. Simply put, birthday serves as a challenge, most of the time. It is important to know that birthday is significant to people and you should deem it fit to celebrate the people in your life on their birthdays.
It only shows that they don’t only care about you, you also love them and that you still cherish your relationship with them. It makes them feel loved and know their place in your life. Meanwhile, while you may be too busy to celebrate your loved ones on their birthdays, you can still make up with them afterwards; in the most sweetly way ever.
That’s exactly why I have these happy belated 21st birthday wishes below. They are well constructed to pass your message across in the best way possible. Please go ahead and pick as many as possible, and send them to that special person of yours.
