I just have to share Kerith’s card, as I think it’s the best I’ve ever gotten. [Note: I always take the kids to Waffle House or McDonald’s on their birthday.] Here is what it said:
Happy Birthday, Dad!
This is a very special birthday because it involves great memories instead of presents. After a few months you will realize this birthday is impossible to forget. I personally did my hard work to show my thanks to you for loving and caring for me. Your kindness is beyond measure. You’re the best dad a boy could ever have. Sometimes I can’t decide which is better, you or Mom. And that’s how I feel right now. I’m lucky to be your son. I mostly enjoy the times when you and me are alone. Having a good laugh and having a godly discussion is just great. I really enjoy those times and will for the rest of my life – he! Wouldn’t it be a surprise if I took you to Waffle House or McDonald’s sometime when you are in your 70’s. I might.
