I dedicate this rising kite picture to my father. Today is his birthday and he turned 64th.

I really miss him and I am wishing him the best on his birthday. He had a stroke almost 9 years ago that left him paralyzed. He is not able to talk and dependent on others to help him with all his needs. It really breaks my heart to see him like this. He is such a positive man who taught me many wonderful things not by preaching but by setting examples. He once told me that I should do better than him and that I always reach for the highest. He said, "I didn't graduate from college because I didn't have money. You should pursue your education as high as you can." ... and with that, he saved his money to send me and my sister to pursue our degrees in Brisbane.

There are so many positive attributes that I can write about my father. In short I just want to say that my father is a very fine man. I cherished him, I do and I always will.

If I Could Dance with My Father Again, I certainly would.

.Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul. Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal. ~ Pamela Vaull Starr ~
