Happy Birthday Daddy

I wasn’t kidding when I said, “November is a busy month for us.” We have a birthday practically every other day, or almost every weekend. A recap of our Friday- Ric turned 25, we celebrated by going to Melting Pot for the first time with friends, and ended the night with pizza and playing Monopoly! Yes, it was fun! =]


Today, on November 23, is my Dad’s birthday. For those who don’t know, my Dad passed away on May 4,2008 from Prostate Cancer. It was one of the hardest times in my life. Although, he is gone, his legacy lives through his children, grandchildren and of course my Mom! Even it being 5 years, it still doesn’t seem “real”. I am happy and at peace that he is no longer struggling, or in pain. Although, it is bittersweet to not see him, touch him, hear him, etc. Today, would’ve been his 74th birthday! He would’ve LOVED chasing around Skyler-Ian and Spencer!! Regardless, my kids are growing-up knowing him. Today, Ric and I along with the kids (like every year), go to the cemetery bring balloons, eat his favorite food, get a cake – and celebrate his life. This song reminded me of him…





I know you may not be here Dad, and there is not a day that passes that I wish you were still with us. Thank you for always watching over us, protecting us, and being there even if we don’t physically see you. I miss you more than words could ever describe, and I can’t wait to reunite with you someday. Love you always!!
