Today is my dad's birthday and we lived it to the fullest. My mom and I waited with him for 2 1/2 hours as he got his drivers liscence renewed. Talk about a gift!! Haha, you could really tell the characters of the people waiting. Most had enduring strength!! Some got impatient and left right away, and some would come and go as they waited for their numbers to be called. I think the DMV is the most boring place in the world to be!! I think everyone would agree with that!!
After my dad was done there, we went to lunch and because it was his birthday, he got a complimentary birthday ice cream. With sprinkles. Then we went for Starbucks, and over to one of his favorite tool stores!! And then over to Cold Stone Creamery for some more ice cream. :0) Then we ran a couple of errands, and then home for a light dinner. Talk about a full day!!! But he's had a wonderful day!!
I'm so thankful for my dad!! He's a good man who still works hard to provide for his family. He's had some hard times, but his faith in the Lord has really strengthened him and helped him. We are not a perfect family by any stretch of the imagination, but what we are and what we have with eachother is rare and good!! God is good.
