Everything's Just Fine
Dad's childhood nickname was Sonny.
He's come back to it, but now, he spells it with a U.
Today is Sunny's 85th birthday.
"So, how's everything feeling," I asked, "you know, being eighty-five and..."
Just thinking about being 85 completely freaks me out.
"I have always felt a lot of love from people," he said, "and I've loved them. But at this point in my life, it feels even more incredible. People are so caring."
We sat quietly, doing the sitting quietly thing.
Then he said,
"Everything's just fine."
Taking a page from Dad's playbook on this July 5th.
Happy Birthday, Sunny ~
