Happy birthday Dad!
I woke with this thought this morning. I wanted to pick up the phone to tell you, but I knew you wouldn't answer.
I thought about my day as I got ready for work. I had a hard conversation coming up today. I thought of you and what your advice would be: you can do anything if you set your mind to it.
I scraped the snow off my car this morning. I thought about you when I smiled and realized how pleased I was to have gotten gas after work yesterday instead of needing to stop this morning. I could let my car run longer and warm up like you told me to AND still stay above a half tank as you said I should always try to do.
I said happy birthday to my principal when I got to school. I thought about you and how you both have big number birthdays - 40 for him and 75 for you.
I thought about you a lot today.
I hope there were lots of friends and loved ones gathered with you around your cake today Dad.
Happy birthday in heaven.
