Happy Birthday to My Dearest Dad (yes all capitalized) to whom has taught me many of life’s important lessons such as:
the unconditional love of family
how to change a flat tire
why it is always important to wear sunscreen
how to deal with annoying people when you’re not in the mood
what sacrifice for love can mean
and how hard work pays off
I know I am far away, in another country even where the speak another language, but the adage holds true: distance does make the heart grow fonder.
I hope that mum made a tres leches cake par d’excellence and that the nation celebrated with fireworks as always.
With all my love and affection, Happy Birthday.
