We gave Dad eighty gifts to open for his birthday, one for each year. Many of the “gifts” are memories family members wrote on cards. Tonight after dinner, Oompa read some of the memories written by his grandchildren. The memories gave Dad a huge smile and brought Oma to tears. Sharing these special times with our loved ones are the most meaningful gifts, and remembering the loving memories I have of Dad unexpectedly became gifts for me.

This is really a neat idea Anne. I turn 75 in a couple of weeks, but I’m sure I won’t get 75 gifts…maybe one!
