I had a blast making this birthday celebration film in honor of my dad for his 74th birthday. He’s worked hard all his life to provide for his family and I want him to know how loved and appreciated he is. Also, I want to give special thanks to all of the wonderful, playful Youthful Hearts and others awesome people who starred in this movie. May all of your birthdays be happy. Here’s to fun and joy in life for all of us, no matter what our age! 

What did you think of my gift to my dad? I would love to hear from you! (Leave comments below.)

    So inspiring to see, hear and FEEL! Your dad is one special guy – to spark such love in you, have a daughter like you – what a reminder that “giving is receiving” – and having just seen your website, I’m so moved by how you really are living your mission! With gratitude for how you seem to bring out the best in all those you touch, Suz

      Wow…Hi Suz! I’m just getting caught up on my emails after a very full and busy weekend. What a wonderful surprise to find your blog post to me! Your words are so uplifting to my soul–thank you for your acknowledgement–it means so much to me. And thank you for your creative and playful contribution to my dad’s birthday video. I had never heard that birthday song before so it was a very unique and special addition. Looking forward to our future interactions!

    What will you come up with next, Jeaenette? Guess what? It was my birthday a couple of days ago, so I pretended you were singing to me. 🙂 Thanks for the fun times.

    • Jeanette says:

      Hey Rhonda! It was so great to see you in class again, after your long absence. You look wonderful so I know your travels have been good to you. Happy Birthday! I love that you let yourself receive good wishes through my video! It is actually for everyone!!

    Jeanette, I didn’t realize that you had this type of skill too. What a great idea. Your dad is lucky to have such a creative and loving daughter.

      Hi Debra, I’ve been messing around with video projects for about 5 years now. I really enjoy it! Thanks for the acknowledgment.
