It's my dad's 55th birthday today! Every birthday is special, but this one is especially so because he is in the United States! My dad is a missionary in Kenya, Africa and he first boarded a plane for Kenya over 5 years ago right before his birthday. I told the people he was with to make sure they remember his birthday in Kenya, but they replied that birthdays are not a big deal over there and it likely wouldn't happen. :( My heart broke. I am really into making birthdays at my house very special. It's an all-day affair with special meals, homemade cakes and time spent together.
Fast forward 5 years. This is the first birthday (and first Father's Day!) my dad has celebrated in the States since he first left for Kenya and I am so excited to have him home!!
I love you Daddy. Hope your birthday today is wonderfully special and fun! SO glad to have you here with us. Thanks for being the best Dad a girl could ever ask for. :)
