Young at Heart

grand pa

You’re never too old
for wind in your face
Just get out there and go
no matter your pace
It’s the freedom you feel
cruising down the street
whether in the front
or even backseat
It’s the feeling of youth
when time has passed you by
It’s the pleasure you feel
knowing you’ve tried
So don’t ever think
you’re too old to fly
Swing that leg over
and head for the sky!

My Dad had some New Year’s Day fun sitting on our scooter and pretending to ride, with the help of my hubby. Of course, if he did ride, he would have worn a helmet! My son edited the top photo, which turned out awesome and our family got a kick out of seeing Grandpa, at the Young age of 94, “cruising down the street!”
This only proves you can stay “Young at Heart!”

Happy 94th Birthday, Dad! ♥

Happy 94th Birthday, Dad

I’m honoring my Dad’s 94th Birthday today! 

At this “youthful” stage in his life, he still drives, enjoys reading my blog,
has a facebook now, meets a good friend for lunch often, remains active
in his church and is still going strong!
Someday, I’ll ask him again what the secret to a long life is…

Dad, I’m sending you a Blitz Torte (your favorite), but this time,
I didn’t make it myself.
You know I’m a great baker,
but this cake is not my specialty, it was Mom’s.
I was afraid mine would look like the California Earthquake cake again! 🙂
Remember that? I think Mom really enjoyed my attempt and had a good laugh!

There are no new words to say,
only those that have been repeated over the years…

Thank you for all you’ve done for your three daughters
and for all of their families. Your kindness and Love
doesn’t go unnoticed. Thank you for being our Pillar
and for being Mom’s true love.

WE LOVE YOU AND WISH YOU A HAPPY 94TH!

xoxo
