Getting Older

One of the funny things I’ve noticed about “getting older” is watching those you love get older too.  And so it’s a little surreal today to be celebrating my dad’s 70th birthday.  I’m not sure how my dad is that old, and if you know him at all, you’re probably a little surprised too.

And the older I get the more I come to appreciate my dad just as he is.  Probably because the older I get, the more like him I become.  Our relationship has been marked by some very rocky years, but I’m thankful for a dad who led his family to Jesus and prays for us all like crazy, who is honest to a fault and generous to the same degree, who loves with his whole heart and is in turn loved by so many.

Happy birthday, Dad.  I’m blessed to have a few really great men in my life; one of them is you. We all love you!
