25Every wrinkle and every strand of grey hair only stands as a reminder of the obstacles you’ve overcome and every uphill battle you’ve had to crawl your way through.
They serve as a map of your life just as much as your children do. Have an amazing and happy birthday.


26Happy birthday, old man. Maybe this year is the year I finally beat you at football. Hahaha.
You might be older, but boy, do you give us younger men a run for our money. I hope when I’m your age I’m as fit as you are. Happy birthday again.


27I hope that this new year is filled with love and amazing opportunities for an amazing man. This is your special day, enjoy it, father-in-law.
