Sentimental Sunday: Remembering Daddy on His Birthday
He never really liked this picture stating he didn't understand why anyone would take a picture like that. It seemed to embarrass him that he was wearing only a diaper. I always have loved the picture and have it framed and displayed beside a baby picture of my mother.
Another treasure I have in my guest room is the bed he told me he was born on. Although the foot board was broken when he had it in a rental property, the bed is still in good condition. To use it, I had to have a mattress custom made to fit since a standard full mattress wouldn't quite work. The bed was probably a standard size back then, but seems small for two adults now. It's amazing to think of all the changes he saw during his lifetime.
He is often in my thoughts, but I especially remember him on this day.
