Today is my dad's 55th birthday! He is such a great dad, father-in-law, and Bumpa! My kids are CRAZY about their bumpa, esp Maddox! He has been such a steadfast and immovable example in my life of love, kindness, and generousity.
Believe it or not, during my mission, he wrote me three to five times a week! Now that is love and support!!! His letters kept my spirits high when the weather was a total iceberg and the language was impossible at times. I would be laughing, falling off my chair, splitting a gut, whenever I was reading his letters, it was just what I needed to boost my spirits. He has stepped in and helped me out in so many stages of my life, I am so grateful for him and that he is MY dad.
We are celebrating his birthday tonight like every other holiday or occasion...a BBQ and swim party!
