Happy Birthday Dad!!!

Today is my dad’s birthday.  My dad…he and I are alike in so many ways and we are so different in so many ways.  We can have hearty laughs together, be silly together and then we can go at it like cats and dogs.  We can see eye-to-eye for some things and for other things, we just don’t agree.  At all.  We are both strong-minded and can be quite opinionated.  He is very black and white, there is a “right” way and a “wrong” way in life.  I’d like to think that I try to find more of the “gray” in life.  Despite our similarities and our differences, he is my dad and I do love him.  Most days.  Haha, I’m just kidding.  Even if he drives me nuts and I know I drive him bananas as well, we are family and we will love each other until the end.  He has taught me many lessons in life.  Some of the lessons were his intention to teach me and others were not.  He has helped to shape me into the person I am today and I am very grateful for his love and support in all that I do.  He may not agree with all of my life choices and it may take him a while to come around, but when it comes down to it, he is there to support me for the sole reason that I am his daughter—his flesh and blood.  Happy birthday Dad!!!  I hope that you have a wonderful, peaceful and quiet day!!!  Growing up, that is what he wished for every year for his birthday…peace and quiet 🙂

I am just posting one image of my dad, because he is “old-school” and very leery about being on the Internet for the whole world to see…:)

There’s peace and quiet as long as one of his three daughters isn’t home for dinner. Hahahaha
