The Happiness Project: My Daddy’s Birthday

Oh it is a Happy Day! My Dad, Daddy, Old Man, Pappa is a year older!!!

I wouldn’t say that my father was ever touch and go this past year – if we were ever to the point were we thought this would be our last year with him. I think he thought that and said MD Anderson was trying to kill him multiple times, but they didn’t.

When I heard “your father has cancer” I balled…balled my eyes out – tears now. It is a hard thing to hear. Even if you know that person will not succumb to their diagnoses it’s hard to think about what they have to go through to get to the other side. It’s been a long year, but he has pulled through!!! YAY!!!

And now we get to celebrate him being old!!!

My father doesn’t read my blog unless my mom reads it to him. Remember he is the one who thinks he will get a virus from Google – God love ‘em. So mom please tell him:

Happy Birthday Daddy!!!

Tell him if he has his teeth in all day today I will send him a gift card to Bed Bath and Beyond! Hey, he’s been through a lot he is allowed to take his teeth out, but not for an entire day!

Also Happy Birthday to my awesome employee Stefanie!!!!

Want more Happiness – like this wasn’t enough! You know where to go…go see Leigh!
