Gratitude for my Father

Sunday was Mother’s Day. Today’s post is for my Dad. Today is his birthday – May 10th. It is hard to believe that he has been gone so long!

Although I am grateful for my Mom for many things, it is my Dad’s influence that gave me a lot of my personality, my sense of humor, my dedication to writing/typing/mindless rantings, my musical appreciation and talent, my zest for life, and so much more.

By the way… the Gratitude Bursts are sent out each morning as a tribute to him and this day… May 10th! I get the posts out at 5/10 – I mean 5:10 am.

I wish you a Happy Birthday today, Dad!

Be Well.

    Didn’t realize these posts were dedicated to your Dad but great. A fine tribute to him and your family.

      @Michele -Thanks! The posts are not necessarily dedicated to him, but the Gratitude Bursts that I send out get sent out at 5:10 in honor of his birthday!

    Happy Birthday Daddy!

    Daddy had always been proud of your accomplishments, the person he knew you were and the person who you would become!(There was no question about that)
    I see many of Dad’s wonderful qualities in you. I’m very proud of you, as I know he would be.

    100 and counting! Joie de Vivre!
