Happy Birthday Dad
Today is my Dad's 88th birthday. Happy Birthday Dad!!
We are so fortunate to have him in our lives. I always picture him busy - working hard, creating beautiful things out of wood for my Mom and for the rest of us, helping whenever one of us needs him. I also picture him reading his Bible. How he loves the Lord. And I rarely can picture him without my Mom right along side. They will celebrate 62 years of marriage in a couple of weeks.

He has slowed down these past few years. The golf clubs sit at the back of the closet, and he cannot do the work he once enjoyed so much. However, he loves to learn new things and is a whiz on the computer. He tries things I wouldn't dream of attempting. He emails family and friends and is the one we count on to take and post all the family pictures. He still enjoys wood working and made me a lap desk for my birthday. I treasure all the things we have in our home that have come from his hands. Lately he has been playing a lot of chess - with the computer and with the great grandchildren. That's him with his oldest great granddaughter Stephanie. They love to play with him because he doesn't let them win. They have to work hard to beat him - and that doesn't happen often. They had such a great time during the two days we were all together for Christmas.

He is very precious to me. Thank You Lord for my Dad.

Blessings,

He sounds like a wonderful guy!

My folks celebrated their 61st in August - they were just babies when they got married and are only 78 and 81.

What a precious tribute to your sweet dad. My son thought yesterday was such a cool date because it was "1-2-3." He noted that there is no other day like that in the whole year. :) It was a special day, indeed. I loved this post!
