Birthday is a very important occasion in our lives, and it’s a day that we should take time out to celebrate those that are close to us, especially family and friends. While we may be having the intention to do this, things can come up. And boom, we forget that special person’s birthday.
This happens so well. We just get so busy that we even forget to attend to ourselves, forget about special dates and events. Meanwhile, our family and friends expect at least, a message or wish from us on their birthdays.
What then should be the next step when you forgot to wish your cousin on their birthday? While your cousin will be so disappointed, to say the least, you should also be thinking of ways to make it up to them. One of the most beautiful ways to do this is sending them a belated wish, which includes telling them how much love you have for them and making them see the reason for your action.
The happy belated birthday cousin wishes below is more than enough to melt their heart. Go ahead and send them to your beloved cousin.
