This evening, after my dad's 85th birthday party, he thanked us repeatedly, and then commented, "This is my first birthday party." No one should have to live 85 years before having a birthday party thrown in their honor! My heart is happy, knowing he is happy. A party isn't a party without people, and gracious friends from the neighborhood, church and the Gideons, as well as a couple relatives, all came in his honor. My cousin, Elaine, exclaimed on her way out, "I'll be here for your 90th!"
