Happy Birthday, Dad!

Want to know something truly amazing and maybe even miraculous?

Today is my dad's SIXTIETH birthday. A feat in itself, but consider the fact that he's now surpassed his doctor's cheeriest predictions by at least three years. 'Tis mercy all, immense and free.

(No, he is not bedridden; this is Caroline helping Uncle Peter get him up from his nap during our last visit. And Caroline sharing bites of food with him, although he still feeds himself.)

Happy birthday, Dad! Hopefully Mom will remember to prepare your annual celebratory treat of brussels sprouts for dinner tonight!

Brussels sprouts for a birthday dinner? Not a traditional choice for favorite food... ;)

Happy birthday to your dad! :)
