Happy Birthday, Daddy
Yesterday we celebrated Fathers Day with most of our blended family including Beren's girls, my dad, Kali's dad, and Kali's cousin who just arrived from NJ for the wedding.
We had a nice lunch at a favorite Italian restaurant, shared pizza and laughter, tried not to think about Mom's absence and the fact that she was not feeling well enough to attend.
Today is my Dad's birthday, yet instead of partying and blowing out candles we are going to be sitting in a doctor's office discussing Mom's condition. I am hoping that we leave there this afternoon with some good news, a bright spot so that my dad can enjoy his special day just a little bit.
Happy Birthday, Daddy. I love you.
