Just spent the last 24+ hours with my two baby sisters (ages 18 and 21) for my birthday, topped it off with dinner at Buca di Beppo's with them, my wife and mom. This is special because I never. NEVER. Had a birthday dinner with my family. At least not since Mom and my siblings moved out my junior year of high school (long story, has to do with finances for my handicapped brother). I never made a big deal out of my birthday, so I never had a celebration or gathering for it.

Any other birthday, though, I would get a bunch of texts and Facebook posts, but maybe 2 or 3 phone calls. One of them would always be from Dad. I really, really missed that call this year. Not like he'd say much outside of 'Happy Birthday', but man it sure would be nice to hear his voice again. I was really hurting thinking about that this morning at work.

Fast forward to tonight after dinner. In retrospect, I have to say despite my hurt, this year's birthday is probably my favorite. Ever. I got to spend my dinner and evening with 4 of the most precious, beautiful, amazing and most important women in my life.

This is a perfect example of something I posted during Christmas when I was feeling down: "Merry Christmas everyone! Don't count the blessings you don't have because you'll miss the ones you do. Love you all" If I were too wrapped up in missing and hurting about Dad, I would have totally missed the 4 amazing gifts he left me with tonight.

I followed some of your posts.. sounds like all had a great time and very healthy on at that. Your family, although still hurting, seems so filled with joy and happiness in your bonds.


Happy Belated Birthday.. now get off the video games. ;)

I'm glad you had one and you shared your birthday experience with us.

Belated birthday good wishes, Jeremy!

And I'll echo what Cheesey said -- such a good time was well-deserved!!

May your new year be excellent and you get all your wishes except those having to do with Viking victories or Packer defeat.
None of the above. It wouldn't have been a wasted vote. Obama and Romney -- Those were the wasted votes.

Happy Birthday, Formo!

That first Christmas/New Years without Dad was a hard one for us. I can guess some of the stuff you've been going through. The feelings get a little less intense over time, but don't go away.

Thanks for hanging out over here.

The owner of this site would go on an extended vacation just for the opportunity to give Barry Sanders a blow-job.
