Dear dad

Running into you is always great, but to find you like this, covered in sugar, enjoying a vanilla pastry heart beats most encounters.

Ps. Even better, as I told my mom, the doctor, about meeting you like this she smiled and honestly said "I'm so glad he's finally taking good care of himself".  No hint of irony, she really meant it. She meant that it's good you're pausing to enjoy life. I think this is how you've stayed together for 40+ years. Both wanting the other to have a great time. And lots of pastries.
