Happy Birthday Daddy!!!


Happy 74th birthday to my dad!

Amazing that 74 years ago, he was just an itty bitty baby, and now he is daddy and grandpa. I don’t have the words to do justice to my dad…no poems, no words….nothing will do. He is more than anything I can try to write…to know my dad is to love him.

A fine and selfless human, he is remarkably one of a kind. True and sincere to the core, and yet very silly and so much fun to be around, my siblings and I are blessed to have him as our father, and mother. He plays both parts so well, and without complaints.

One of my biggest desires and prayers, is to take care of my dad…and I am thankful to God, that I can do it even if only in the littlest of ways…I am fortunate to have him with me again this year on his birthday, and so the plan is to honor him, as he so rightly deserves. The truth is there is nothing I can do to show appreciation to a man who has lived his life in service to his children, and now his grandchildren (He is the best unpaid babysitter around). He delights in our happiness, and fulfillment and I see it in his eyes every day. He continues to be our strength, as his eyes brim with gratitude and pride over each of us…

I don’t have the perfect words to celebrate this dearest and oldest love of my heart, but my prayer is that in the remaining years of his life, he is happy, and healthy with many blessings to remain thankful for.

My sibling and I are fortunate to have a father like ours…we know it and never take it for granted…he isn’t perfect…yet he is absolutely perfect for us. God knows, we love him with our hearts oozing love and joy…

So today, on behalf of all his children, and those wonderful grandchildren who cause his heart to beat love, and life, his silver gray hair glowing as his gentle eyes glisten tears in joy over them, when he quietly blesses their day…I wish him a happy birthday.

May his silver gray hair, and crowning glory continue to glow brightly…even when it seems dark, and may he see only better days from here on out…we love you daddy.

To many more happy healthy days! Happy birthday sir!!!

*Please join me in wishing my dad a very lovely and happy birthday. THANK YOU, and have a lovely week. God bless!*

  1. Great piece to a lovely daddy.
    May God do for your father the things you are unable to do for him.
    May true peace, health, wealth, joy and fulfilment penetrate into his heart and mind.
    May mercy, favour and grace be showered on him, in all he does and everywhere he goes.
    I wish him many more cheerful years with the wisdom, courage and strength to direct all his children to the heights that they dream and beyond!
    Happy birthday to him!
