60 Years of Laughter

Today my Dad is 60. As I've posted on this blog, he has had some health issues the past few years (which are under control now, thank goodness). So when we had his birthday party yesterday - we didn't do an "over the hill" party - we did a celebration of his life. Honestly, I don't know what I would do without him.

I asked several people to share some memories about Dad - and every story was filled with fun and laughter. That is one of the biggest things I've learned from Dad. A sense of humor can help you overcome just about anything.

So on this day, Daddy - I want to say thanks for being who you are, for being a hard worker, for never giving up, for loving your family, and for keeping us laughing.

No matter what happens in your next 60 years (yes, I want you to live that long!), I hope you know how much you are loved.

HAPPY 60th!!
