It is Papa's birthday tomorrow.
I thought I would share a few thoughts about what I love about Papa.
I love that he married Curly and made Keith.
I love that when he hears a good singer on American Idol he will often use the word "Phenomenal" to describe the person's voice.
I love that when he speaks of any one of his children, he speaks with total pride and with genuine admiration.
I love that when he is winning a card game he laughs so hard that he goes into vapor lock.
I love that he showers me with compliments.
I love that he enjoys singing Karaoke with me.
I love his beef stroganoff.
I think is is funny that when he is done with a conversation on the phone he just hangs up without saying goodbye.
I love that although he has been faced with struggles in his life, he keeps his head high and his words positive.
I like that he openly talks with us about his Parkinson's diagnosis.
I admire that he has never tasted a drop of alcohol.
I love his stories about his days in the secret service.
I like his twisted kid songs.
I share in his love for sweets.
I am excited that he and Curly just purchased a home about 3 miles from us so we will be enjoying their company more often.
Happy Birthday Papa!!
Thanks for spending the holidays with us and for buying a house right down the road. Can't wait til closing!
