Tomorrow on March 16th, 2008, I will be celebrating my birthday. I will be 65 years old. About six weeks ago I received a beautiful letter from my dad. It is written to his three daughters and is an expression of his love for us, his enjoyment of being our dad, and the importance of family to him.
I wanted to share it because I think I was pretty lucky to have him for a dad and to have grown up feeling very loved and that I mattered.
He is 95 years old now and lives just 35 minutes from me. I got a birthday card from him and he included a note saying he would call to set up a time to take me to lunch. Lunch will be at Perkins and he will have pancakes.
Here is his letter..if you click on the letter it will come up in a larger screen and will be easier to read.
Thank you Dad! I love you!
