Happy Birthday, Dad!

Besides being Thanksgiving, it is my Daddy's birthday. On the years his birthday fell on Thanksgiving, he would call himself the turkey. We lost him to cancer 2 1/2 years ago. He would have been 71. I miss him terribly, but I take comfort in the fact that he and Mom are together. I know they will be smiling down on us as we celebrate the day together as a family with most of my siblings, their spouses, nieces and nephews. Happy Thanksgiving!

Very sweet.

It is good that your parents are together. They are probably both praying for you.

I hope you have a fun thanksgiving with all your family.

Hope you had a wonderful day with your family. I am sorry I did not get over here yesterday to say hi. Will be gone for the weekend, so will probably not post until Monday. Have a good weekend also.
I love the picture. I know you cherish it.
