December 19 is a very special day. It’s my dad’s birthday.
I’ve always thought it sucked for him to have a birthday so close to Christmas, so I try to make it special for him – because he is so special to me.
We have a dinner & a movie tradition for his birthday. He gets to pick the film. Not going to lie – he’s picked a few stinkers that shall go unarmed. However, the rule regarding the birthday movie is we can’t give him a bad time in the event it’s bad. You know, it’s part of the gift, really. Haha!
We will be seeing STAR WARS today. This may very well go down in history as the best birthday movie. EVER.
Seems so silly just to call him “dad”, but what other word encompasses loyalty, friendship, kindness, generosity, thoughtfulness, unconditional love, counselor, cheerleader, faith, grace, mercy, wit, talent, humor & sarcasm? I guess “dad” will have to do as my words fail me.
Happy birthday, dad. You are cherished.
