Every birthday deserves a celebration. If you're six or 46 or 96. Birthdays are a celebration of life. They are a celebration of accomplishments and the love of family and friends.
Today my Dad would have celebrated his birthday. Today we would have celebrated with him. If he were here we would have met for dinner and without any doubt dessert.
He loved his family so much, and cherished the time that we spent together.
So, today, we celebrated his birthday the way we celebrated so many birthdays when he was here. A busy day of keeping up with work and kids and day-to-day life. Then, we wrapped it up with his favorite after dinner snack - frozen custard.
It was a small celebration, just Hubby and I this year.
Big Girl missed him so much that days like this are tough on her. Little Man never met him. They have so much in common, including a name, but not a love for frozen deserts.
Even though he's been gone for more than two years, today is his day.
I love you Dad!
