I am very blessed, I have great parents who are supportive of all that I do, however, I have always spent more time with Mom than Dad – she, my sister Gina and I have traveled together fairly regularly and Dad stays home with the dog. To celebrate Dad’s 80th birthday (he is a very young 80!) I asked him if we could go on a trip together and where he would like to go…we just returned from a road trip through Missouri and Arkansas!
Being able to spend one on one time with him was amazing! We talked about Family history – really straightened me out on a couple of relational lines I had mixed up!
The point of all this is what an amazing opportunity to connect with the man who is part of the an amazing duo who has raised 3 daughters and are an integral part of 5 grandaughters lives and now have 3 great grandaughters and 1 great grandson. Thanks Dad for an amazing trip!
