looking fine at 79!

papaw turned 79 today! happy birthday!!

what a year he's had! it's been up & down, but he's been fighting a good fight. i'm proud of him. i've learned a lot from him over the years, especially this past one. he never complained about how he was feeling or the chemo or the surgery, just did it. he taught me a lot about inner strength & how i need to toughen up a bit.

what did papaw want for his birthday?? a snuggie, of course.

i told him we'd save his candles for his 97th birthday. he chuckled.

after cake & ice cream, we sat outside in the pouring rain & watched the kiddos play in their sunday best. pretty good entertainment those kids are.

i think papaw had a good birthday with us. i'm glad we got to share it with him. i love my pap.
