It is my dads 80th birthday today. I have always liked that his birthday and Fathers Day fall so close. That way I can send a Birthday card and just write Happy Fathers Day or visa verse. But this year I sent both.
My father was born in a little town in Idaho.
He was so small that he was kept -in-near-on- the oven.
He was the first and only child. His mother died when he was 8 so his father raised him.
He grew up on a farm.
He walked to the bus up-hill both ways in the snow.
So humor me while I climb up on my soap box. I was watching the 60th Jubilee this morning while I was quilting and I had two thoughts.
The royals have a lot of ponies and their carriages are awesome. And.....
They dress so modestly. Here is a family that demonstrates that if you really think highly of yourself; you wear modest clothing. I am always amazed at the beautiful dresses that Kate wears. You do not have to sacrifice modesty to look amazing and royal.
