Sadly, that's not the first thing that comes to my mind anymore on this date.
My dad is 72 years old today. He has had prostate cancer, a mild heart attack, and has been living with type 2 diabetes for over 20 years. He's a grouchy old fart sometimes. And I love him.
He always tells us he won't be around "next year." Well Dad...look, another year has gone by, and here you still are. :)
This picture is Kylie, I think...taken when she was about 3 months old. I'm so lucky to still have both my parents in my life, and in my kids' lives. They are the best grandparents ever.
Happy Birthday Dad. I love you.
