Today we celebrated my dad's 82nd birthday in the hospital. He had all 6 of kids (grown adults) there by his side and I'm not sure we have all been together at the same time or not. The doctor walked in while we were all visiting and he didn't look too happy, but I quickly told him that today was a special day for our dad and he seemed to be okay with all of us being there. My dad knew everyone's names and even knew my nephew's new wife's name after only 3 months of marriage. He actually remembered her maiden name and we thought he was a little looney because he said her name was "Friday". He was right and made us all smile. I'm not sure he will remember this day or not but I am so thankful God allowed all of us to be there for him and we celebrated his life together as a family.
