Over the hill

39 was so last year. These days, our dad is a new and improved 40-year-old! Because you know what they say: “40 isn’t old if you’re a tree.” Wait… that’s the wrong pep talk for aging gracefully. Let’s try this again…

Dad, listen closely to the trees planted over the hill; they whisper wisdom in the wind:

  • Drink plenty of water and seek nourishment from the good things in life
  • Be flexible; bend before you break
  • Go out on a limb once in a while
  • Remember to turn over a new leaf or let some go at times
  • Accept the changing seasons
  • Stay grounded and connect with your roots
  • Stand tall and proud and celebrate each growth ring
  • Enjoy the view

Happy birthday, Dad! Forty sure looks good on you!
