We all celebrated my dad's 75th birthday last Monday evening. What a great day to have a birthday on...this year the Church moved the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception to Monday, but either way December 9th is St. Juan Diego's feast day.
We saw my parents at Mass Monday morning and then went and had dinner with them at their home with almost all of the grandchildren and great-grandchildren. (They have 12 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren.)
He is such a pillar of strength supported by his faith and I admire him more than he knows :)
