I have always been a sender of birthday cards. Family and friends tell me that if my card doesn’t reach them by their birthday each year, they are alarmed. If my card arrives late, it brings a sense of relief. So, birthday card sending has always been my thing, and having bulk birthday cards on hand makes me job a lot easier.
As I got older, more family members were born, weddings added spouses, and because we are a genetically long-lived clan, there have been more birthdays to keep track of every year. I’ve also been blessed with many friends, who I dearly love and whose birthdays I’m happy to celebrate.
I do put effort into keeping track of a lot of birthdays. Lots of people think I’m an extremely organized, sensitive friend and business associate. To be honest, once I put the date, name and address into a monthly file, it’s easy to keep track of each year. And having birthday cards by the box make me seem like an absolute miracle worker!
