Change Your Life…Tips for a healthier you

Happy Birthday, Dad

on March 12, 2012

This is what being a teacher for 30 years will do to a person!

Today would have been my dad’s 82nd  Birthday.  He died 3 years ago from complications of Parkinson’s, a disease that he struggled with for 20 years.  Watching him go from being a smart, compassionate, very funny vibrant man to a person who couldn’t walk, talk, or take care of himself was devastating and was a big part of my interest in doing what I can to be healthy until my last day on this earth.  As you can see from the pictures, he had a great love of life and was always making us laugh.  Not a day goes by that I don’t think of some funny thing he said or did. I sure wish we could have one last conversation.

Your mission for today: If you had 5 minutes left in your life and could talk to just one person…who would it be, what would you say, and why are you waiting?  

Happy Birthday, Dad.

Even big kids love Happy Joe's
