I called my dad today..

“Dad, today is a very special day! A day that changed your life❤️it’s my birthday!”

He said “oh yeah. It changed my life? You think. I don’t know about that.”

I enthusiastically told him “dad, you were the best dad!”

Dead pan he responded “I probably was!”

I got my empathy from my beloved mother. I got my tenacity from my father.
