Just Me and My Dad

One of the benefits to spending a leisurely week at my parents with no itinerary boxes to check was carving out one day to have lunch alone with my dad, celebrating his 70th birthday.

I live so far away that this never happens.

Dad kept saying how much he loves having all his family together, but the rare moments he gets to spend one on one with his kids are treasured. I agree. I love talking to him as an adult, listening to his opinions on politics and people while eating his favorite pizza--Maxie's with Canadian bacon, pineapple, bell peppers, and fresh tomatoes.

We lingered through two Pepsi refills as we talked and laughed.

I don't tell them often enough, but I'm truly blessed with the parents I have. I love them and all they do for me and for my family.

Happy birthday, Dad.

Thanks for loving me.
