Birthday Day

Life should begin with age and its privileges and accumulations, and end with youth and its capacity to splendidly enjoy such advantages. ~ Mark Twain

Today is my grandfather's 80th birthday.

80 years old.

In his eighty years, he has overcome so much.

Accomplished so much.

And married the best lady in the Universe.

In his eighty years, he has worked.

Every single day.

In his eighty years he has had much sorrow.

But much more happiness.

He has raised 3 children.

He has enjoyed 8 grandchildren.

And 9 great grandchildren.

I am looking forward to the next 80 years and what else they bring to his fabulous life.

As long as he stays out of the hospital......

I love you Grandpa.
