Today is my Dad's Birthday!!! I so wish I was able to be with him and do something just SPECTACULAR for him today! Lord knows he sure does deserve it!!
My Dad has worked SO hard to provide for his family. I know he went to work (and still does) everyday for his family! Now as I get older I realize things more and more, and I see how hard, tiring and stressfull it can be knowing you have to provide for you family! But he has, and has never complained about it! He has done SO much for me, more than I deserve! I am the person I am today because of him! I can always count on him, his wise words and open arms!
I miss him and hate that my parents are so very far away. I haven't seen them since Christmas. But at the same time, I am SO very thankful that I still have my Dad and that I have the luxury of picking up the phone and calling him to wish him a Happy Birthday . . . and hear his voice, like I did today. I know there are so many people out there who would give anything to get to call their parents, so for that I am so very thankful!
Happy Birthday Dad . . . and when I do see you, we will celebrate!!! =) I love you!!
