The first day of spring is always bittersweet to me now.
Today would have been my dad's 84th birthday.
"I thank you for the music
and your stories of the road
I thank you for the freedom
when it came my time to go
I thank you for the kindness
and the times when you got tough
And Papa, I don't think I said
I love you near enough."
~Dan Fogelberg, "The Leader of The Band"
Happy Birthday, Dad, and give Mom a hug for me.
