Birthday Wishes That Are Long Overdue by dmrams

Birthday Wishes That Are Long Overdue


Today we celebrated Trevor's best friend's birthday. Earlier this summer I found out that he had not had a birthday cake/party since he was 5 years old!! Birthdays are a BIG deal to me so I knew we had to do something for him this year!! :) Today Addie and I went to Wal-mart to get him a cake. The only one available was a Transformers cake!! We also bought him a card, and of course we had to get trick candles, too!! :) When we arrived home we secretly signed the card, lit the candles, and then called him into the dining room. As he walked in we sang "Happy Birthday!!" and his face just lit up! I wish I could have captured his smile! He kept saying he couldn't believe this because he hadn't had a cake in years!! Amazing how something so easy to do can mean so much to someone.

Happy 17th Birthday Keith and may all your wishes come true!!
Yes, the little things can mean so much.....! So touching....! I'm so glad that you were able to make his day. Happy birthday, Keith!

Thank you for stepping up. Most people would not have thought it was a big deal for a 17 year old. I bet you made his day.

Oh no! Why no parties? How thoughtful of you--it makes this photo that much more special.

That was very special of you to do that for him. I cannot imagine not celebrating birthdays, unless of course you reach that age when you would ratrher skip them. I'm sure he enjoyed and appreciated the cake.

Aw...makes me want to cry...why hasn't he had a cake...oh, Della...you are a Godsend to this boy today...I always say that "Life is all about the little things"...please relay my good wishes to Keith...and I bet he really LOVED having a transformer cake! He will remember this day for the rest of his life! You "done good" Della!

I can only second Karen's comments. I know he will be smiling when he goes to sleep tonight. Bless you, Della.

You have truly blessed his life with that gift of kindness!

What a thoughtful and sweet thing to do for this young man! I'd have thought everyone had a birthday cake...most especially children! This goes to show we never outgrow our need for birthday cake at least once a year! And even if you didn't catch his initial smile, you got a very cute picture!

@indiannie_jones @kerristephens thanks for the birthday wishes but it wasn't my son's b-day (trevor) it was his best friend's b-day!! :)
September 26th, 2010  
Oh, right, my mistake!
September 26th, 2010  
Whoops... happy birthday Trevor's friend. Sorry, I misread that!
September 26th, 2010  
I can't imagine not celebrating my birthday as a kid - glad he had a good time!
September 26th, 2010  
How very thoughtful of you to do such a nice thing for him.
September 26th, 2010  
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw, this is a lovely story! If I were near I'd make him a cake, too! We could repeat this until he had all those missed eleven cakes! ;) Happy birthday, Trevor!
September 27th, 2010  
This was so sweet of you both to do this for him. I am also one that believe that everyone deserves a birthday party on their big day...even if it's just one little candle stuck in a Hostess cupcake. :-)
September 28th, 2010  
Awww, thats wonderful of you guys! No cake is just plain wrong, so glad you spoilt him :-)
