Handcrafted Cards

90 yr old dad

Tomorrow is Father’s Day.  My dad is 90 yrs old.  This month, within one week, he was the victim of not one, but two armed robberies.  It’s only been a little over a year since he lost his wife of 40 years.  That’s a tremendous ordeal for one person to handle in a lifetime, much less that short span of time.  So I’m feeling extremely blessed to be able to spend Father’s Day tomorrow with my dad  … a man who’s as tough as nails, but would go out of his way to help you whether you wanted it or not.  A man who is solid in his opinion and stands firmly behind it.  A man who, still at the age of 90, does not know the meaning of the word “rest” and is one of the hardest working men I know.  (My husband is the other one.)  A man who spent most of his life as a business owner and leader in the community.  A man who helped to raise five successful, productive children.  A man whom I will always love simply because he is my dad.  A man that I’ve always known is there should I need him.  And to me, that means a lot.  A whole lot.

Tomorrow we go to celebrate with my Dad.

It will be more than just another day.

It will truly be a blessing and a celebration of life.
