Funny birthday one-liners

Don't let aging get you down. It's too hard to get up again!

You are so old, you walked into an antique shop and they sold you.

You know you're getting old when you can't walk past a bathroom without thinking, "I may as well pee while I'm here."

Middle age is when your age starts to show around your middle.

Middle age... when "happy hour" is a nap!

How do you know you've hit middle-age? In preparation for a big sneeze you cross your legs really hard and hope for the best!


Funny birthday messages about gray hair

Those aren't gray hairs you see. They're strands of birthday glitter growing out of your head.

A little gray hair is a small price to pay for so much wisdom.

You know you're getting old when the little old gray-haired lady you helped across the street is your wife.

Don't worry, they are not gray hairs, they are wisdom highlights. You just happen to be extremely wise.

I spent 3 hours searching the internet for the perfect birthday message for you and then I gave up. Happy Birthday.

I wanted to get you something truly amazing and inspiring for your birthday and then I remembered that you already have me.

GENERAL MESSAGES (Good Morning, Goodnight, Get Well, Good Luck)

We have a tradition of sending greetings to our loved ones; but how beautiful it would be to receive a heartfelt message from a loved one.  Daily messages such as good morning messages, goodnight messages, or even good weekend messages; don’t always have to be plain and boring. You can go for daily messages that can change someone’s day from sad to cheerful. These messages work best when you are far from those you love and care about and would like to keep in touch at all times. Sending someone a short but heart-warming message early in the morning can mean the difference between a beautiful day and one without much energy. It is putting down on paper the desire to have that loved one waking up next to you or simply hearing their voice calling out from down stairs.

To avoid sounding artificial in your messages you must try to select or draft messages that express what you would have said if he/she was with you. Wishing a loved one a perfect day or time is a great way to keep constant communication with those who are far from you. Daily messages can also be used to just put a smile on someone’s face by showing that you care and are thinking of them. Here is a compilation of some of the sweetest daily messages around.

ANNIVERSARY MESSAGES

Celebrating an Anniversary shows that you do not regret your decisions and that you would make the same all over again. People celebrate different anniversaries ranging from job anniversary, marriage, and death. However one that seems to matter so much to individuals from all walks of life is marriage anniversary. A wedding anniversary is celebrated to recognize that a relationship has overcome all odds. For centuries the words that one says during this special occasion always matters the most. For this reason anniversary messages have found a special place in every wedding anniversary; giving a chance for one to express their appreciation to their spouse.

However, you can also send anniversary messages to celebrants; celebrate them for an inspiring relationship. Whatever the case may be, anniversary messages are a great way of reminding a loved one that you appreciate what happened on that particular day and that you would do it all over again if you had to. So before you rash into sending one to that special someone, go through this compilation and select the best of them all.

POEMS AND POETRY

Poetry is one of the most beautiful ways to use words, and it is also one of the most effective ways to melt someone’s heart. The way language is artistically used in poems, brings out the message within so deeply and intensely. Writing a poem to a loved one is the simplest way to put down your true emotions on paper. Poems deliver the message exactly how you would want to say it verbally. It easily paints a picture of you saying those words in the mind of the reader. For this reason poems, have for the longest time helped save a dying relationship, start a relationship and even to strengthen one that already exists. In a message you cannot put in words your fantasies and imaginations; but in a poem you can. You can use nature to describe your burning desire to be with your spouse, or even to express your disappointment at something.

THANK YOU MESSAGES

In these times when we are all busy running up and down trying to live life as we want to, we seldom have time to stop and reflect on those around us who make life bearable. There are those that we live with, those we work with, our neighbors and even those we buy our necessities and luxuries from. We have friends who go out of their way to make life worth living for us but rarely do we show our appreciation and gratitude.

The mark of true maturity is in showing gratitude for both small and great things done for us by others. It is time to realize that without many people around us we would never get to where we would like to be. So this is the time to show our appreciation and thanks to those who have impacted our lives in one way or another. It is time to say thank you, it does not cost us anything and yet it is so enriching to the one who is appreciated.

Where does the time go? Another year passed before I could get your birthday greeting out.
