Why I love a good home made birthday card.

Today would have been my dad's 79th birthday.

So I am going to celebrate all of the things
that I loved about him
and all of the things that he gave to me.

This is a birthday card he gave me when I turned 19.




That he probably spent an entire day at work, cutting and pasting and xeroxing,
makes this one of my most prized possessions.





That his words can still fill my heart with such joy, gratitude, love and longing,
make this piece of paper more precious than gold.


And this is why I love a good home made birthday card.
