The sense of distance between loved ones can feel greater on birthdays. However, making an effort to wish Someone a happy birthday and tell them you’re thinking of them can make all the difference. No matter what the reason is that you can’t be together, let them know they’re in your thoughts from afar.

Happy belated Birthday! I’m so sorry I meant to write earlier. First, though, how do you expect me to remember your Birthday when you never look a day older?
Now that everyone else’s birthday wishes have worn off, here’s a great big one from me!
I promise this card is on time. It is intentionally arriving after your Birthday because I think you deserve a whole birth month. Happy Birth-month!
You probably think this card needs to be a few days late. It’s way worse than that, though. This is your card from 2010 that I’ve only just sent. Happy Belated Birthday!
Happy Birthday! Don’t think of this as a late birthday card. Consider it a very early one for next year. Here’s wishing you a wonderful year ahead!
Sorry, I missed your Birthday by several days, but happy Birthday anyways!
I’m so sorry I forgot your Birthday. The good news is that I also forgot your age. Happy belated Birthday!
I’m so sorry I forgot your Birthday. The good news is that I’ll forgive you if you forget mine next year. Happy Belated Birthday!
I wish I could rewind the clock to return to the right time to say Happy Birthday. Please forgive me! I hope you had a great day.
Happy Birthday! I hope you have a fabulous day, and be sure to eat an extra slice of cake for me!
