Dad’s 50th Birthday Party!

July 2008 – Holy smokes I turned 50 this year!  Sounds like a good reason for a party.  We had a few friends and family join us for drinks, dance, and dinner on the Windridge K for a sail up and down the intracoastal waterway.  What a great time with some great people.  It was sensational for folks we have known for so many years to be able to join us to celebrate the beginning of our next 50 years together.  A friend gave me the poem below (author unknown), and I pass it on to you all.

Every name’s a touchstone
that leads to a place and time,
Where God has used another’s heart
to reach out and touch mine.
It may have happened years ago
or even yesterday,
But every person on my list
has changed my life some way.

Through simple conversation,
a warm hug or a shared meal,
Every person on my list
has helped me grow or heal,
Or laugh or love or learn or smile,
the blessing never ends,
As God allows our paths to cross
as family and friends.
