Happy Birthday Daddy!

Today is my dad's birthday and I am choosing to celebrate his life instead of being sad that he is gone (I'm saving that for the day he died).  I even made a cake.  I am so thankful that I had the dad that I did, even if it was for only 27 years.  It was an awesome 27 years.  He was such a good daddy, mentor, and friend.  
I will never forget being held by the ankles and having my head swished around in the tub to rinse out the shampoo, when I was little.  He also would just pull into an empty parking lot and do donuts with no warning.  He once stayed up all night with me after I had been dumped.  He listened to me cry about that jerk ALL NIGHT.  And I cannot describe the way he looked at my son.  

Yay for good Daddies!
