God truly gifted me with an amazing Dad. He taught us the value of hard work, the importance of family, the joy of fun and laughter and most importantly, the love of our heavenly Father. The older I get, the more I realize that I have been, and still am so blessed to have him in my life! He is loved by so many people - he even got a birthday card and a gift certificate from 3 little girls he see regularly in his local McDonalds.
We were able to gather with almost the whole family at a local restaurant. (One grandson-to-be had to work, and Andy and Nikki are in Kentucky.)
We had such a nice evening, with the usual laughter and teasing that happens when we all are together. I know Dad enjoyed it.
