Every person on earth has a birthday but not everybody celebrates it. And yet, we never let them go unnoticed. Even those of us who don’t celebrate feel happy when our loved ones remember to wish us. It somehow makes us feel loved and worth remembering. That’s not always the case though. Forgetfulness can happen to anyone and even you may forget to wish someone on their birthday who might have been expecting you to.
