Happy Birthday, Dad!

Today is my father’s 86th Birthday. I miss him. I have time to miss him. I just called mom about the cat-care checklist. We chatted for five minutes with no mention of today’s significance. I know mom misses dad everyday. The important markers continue to fade. What feels important is she’s not struggling with this. I’ll struggle for her, but only a little. I have this impression my dad understands.
