Happy Birthday

Happy 80th Birthday to my Daddy!!!

It's hard to believe my dad is 80! Dad is in great health. He is strong and active. Sometimes too active! I often have to call multiple times to catch him at home!

My dad is a wonderful, funny, smart man that loves his children dearly. I don't get to see him often as he lives eight hours (driving) and a whole country away. Each time we talk, he has a new joke to share with me. I love that!

My parents sacrificed a lot to move to Canada to give us more opportunities. Now that I am the age my parents were when they moved and I have moved countries myself, I really get what their sacrifices truly entailed.

When I was talking to Dad today, I asked what his plans were. He told me the little errands and then said he was going to blow up some balloons and tie them to the gate so everyone coming to his surprise birthday party would be able to find the entrance!

I love you, Daddy!!!
