I was shocked when I got the call...but it inspired me even more.
For years I've been attempting to get my parents to accompany the wife and I down to WDW for the holidays one December....(MouseFest anyone?)...and my father has been DEAD set against it.
"I'm not going to Orlando. I hate Orlando."
"But dad - the wife's never seen it at the holidays - and enjoying the parks together as adults will bring back all those wonderful memories from when I was a kid and you took me umpteen times!"
"I'm not going to Orlando."
I had about given up.
And then the phone rang.
"I want you to know your mother told me what you're planning. I'm exceptionally proud of you for wanting to get healthy - and for helping other people while you do it. And if you get fit enough to run in that half marathon - I will come to Walt Disney World to watch you run."
Talk about a choked up moment.
I love you too.
