Happy Birthday Dad

My dad is a pretty awesome guy.  He is the kindest, most patient, hardest working, smartest, and best dad a kid could ask for.

And I love how he loves my kids.

But this past year has been tough.  Lots of trials and tribulations.

Of one thing I am certain… it’s not about the trials we face, it’s about how we face our trials.

It’s quite a surreal thing to look at your dad, a man you have known your whole life, and suddenly see him differently   To know he has a drive and force of good so powerful in him that he will not be broken.

To watch him face obstacles he never deserved with an unknown inner strength and grace.

I am so proud of you dad.

    Happy birthday to your Dad, Amanda. What a special photograph of him with your boys! Such a treasure. You are so right about it not being the trials we’re given, but how we handle them. That’s what shows a person’s true character.

    I feel like one of your cakes, a little “frosty” on the outside, but, the surprise is on the inside! Thank you . I must take after my children. When I grow up, I want to be like them. Thank you for all your blessings and give everyone a great big Grandpa hug… or two or three. I’ll save a big one just for you.
