    Birthday Greetings - a short feel good story

    I was on a short ride with a neighbor, when he asked if Id mind stopping at a local drug store so he could get a birthday card. I said I was OK with it and asked whose birthday it was. He said it was his. After wishing him a happy birthday I asked, Do you always send yourself a card? His reply was pretty cool. He said, No, I send it to my mother. After all, shes the one who did all the work to get me here. I like to say thanks at least once a year. And sure enough, he walked out of the store with a thank you card. It had been a misty, dreary ride, but this just brightened up the rest of the trip back home.

    This is the best idea I've read about in many, many years. I regret that my Mom is gone and I'll never have the opportunity to follow that example. Your friend is wise.
