Not mine, my husband’s. He is 65 today. Lots of wonderful phone calls, one of which was from his dad. 92 years old, but going strong!
I love chatting with my father in law, but today I was struck by the fact that I am extremely jealous. To be having a phone call with your dad when you are 65 is a wonderful thing! I would give anything to be talking to my dad even now, at the age of 62. He was killed by a drunk driver, and was older when he became a father to begin with. And so it goes. He has been gone for 31 years, and nothing can change that.
But it was quite a day, and a beautiful summer day at that. I am so grateful for the time I have had. And my husband is 65, and still going strong. A summer day to appreciate, for sure!
