90 years

My dad.
Born 90 years ago today,
December 23, 1924
in Hardy, Arkansas.
Thank you, Lord,
for giving me a loving father for 58 years.
He wasn't perfect and I didn't always understand him.
But he loved me and believed in me
and for that I know I was blessed.
Dad showed me that being a good dad, or mom,
is so very important ... and you only get one shot at it.
Love you, Dad.
