Birthday Wishes ~ Challenge #4

I still find it hard to believe that my Dad turns 61 years old tomorrow. I am so lucky to have him as my Dad. We have always been close. I look back over the years and find that we are closer now than ever before. Is it because of the cancer and almost losing him? Or is just that we are both older and wiser.

I was adopted by my parents at 4 days old. It was the best day of my life. I was fortunate to be raised by two loving people who adore me as much I do them.

My Dad is away on a business trip to Bermuda right now. He will not be around for his birthday but I wanted him to know how much I love him and how lucky I feel each and every day to have him as my Dad. I am grateful to God for letting him stay with me and my family a little bit longer.

My girls and I will be making cards for him tomorrow and we will celebrate his birthday when he gets back on Saturday. Here is a photo taken of him and my girls during the summer. Look at how happy they all are. Again... I am blessed!
