There is nothing like the honesty of children. My dad just celebrated his birthday. He has had a lot of birthdays – a ‘really lot’ of them. Friends and family traveled from near and far to be together for his celebration. The night concluded with the traditional birthday cake complete with candles. As we ended our singing of “Happy Birthday to You”, one of the younger grandsons added – “And many more…..” to which his younger brother quickly but quietly responded -“Well, probably not that many.”
Tears were shed – no not in sadness – but in laughter! A perfect ending to a perfect day.
Happy Birthday Dad! And many more!
