Illness has a way of bringing out the best and the worst in all of us. When a dear friend or a loved one is sick on their birthday, the traditional cheerful birthday greetings may be inappropriate for the occasion. However, a well-thought-out and carefully crafted message may be most welcome even under the direst of situations. Let friends, family, and work colleagues know that you remember their birthdays even when they won’t feel like celebrating. Don’t let them disappear behind their health problems. Instead, use the occasion to offer sympathy and concern. For instance, light-hearted birthday greetings may work if you know the person well. Still, optimistic messages delivered with sincerity may lift the spirit as the celebrant marks a nontraditional birthday.
