It's my dear dad's 81st birthday today!!
Last year I got to be with him for his 80th birthday, but this year he's in Oregon with my mom, and I'm in Czech.
Thankfully Claire was over at our house tonight so we both got to FaceTime with him and my mom to say happy birthday!
My dad is the kindest, friendliest, most generous man in words and deeds. He doesn't know a stranger, and will use every last bit of his energy to go help someone in need. I don't know how he still does it after all these years, but he's been a tremendous example to me of what it means to live a selfless life.
He also adores my mom, and that's always been such a gift to me knowing that he absolutely loves her!
Happy Birthday Dad!! Thank you for your stunning example of what it means to be kind-hearted and giving to those around you. Thanks for caring about people, and always loving mom so well.
I love you!!
