Today is my daddy's 63rd birthday. We celebrated last night with a nice dinner out. After we got our drinks, my mom said "We have to have a toast." Dad's choice of toasts was "Here's to being alive." It was classic Chuck, trust me. My dad prefers to keep things pretty private, so I won't go into a bunch of detail, but the last few years have been truly rough health wise...he is climbing a lot of hurdles. Based on events about 13 months ago, we are beyond blessed to have him with us today. Always remember that a few minutes can be all that it takes to alter the course of your life....never take those that you love for granted. Tomorrow is never promised! I love you, Daddy and look forward to many more years of birthdays!
Here is the lone photo that I snapped from last night. It was monumental because it was the first and only take. My mom has a really nasty habit of closing her eyes during pictures....take after take. So, the fact that this was the first and only picture snapped was pretty awesome in my book!
