My husband & I went out to dinner last night with my dad & his lady friend to celebrate my husband's birthday. I was just thinking about how lucky I am to still be able to do things with my dad. He's 84 years old (he'll be 85 in February on Lincoln's birthday!) and still going strong. He still drives and still owns & lives in his own home.
I sure hope that when I am his age, I can still take care of myself like he does. Naturally, he is slowing down as he gets older, but that's not stopping him. He is planning another trip to Springfield for Lincoln's (& his own) birthday - he's been doing that for several years now. It's so impressive to me.
I just feel so very lucky to have him for my dad!! I love him so much. I will admit it - I'm a daddy's girl big time.
