how australia calls me, part six


6: my family is all here. Yesterday the clan gathered to celebrate Dad’s 80th with music, song, dance, food and wine. Every one of his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren was in attendance. We celebrated more than a birthday; we rejoiced in us all being together. It was a day none of us will forget.

Dad said to me, “I know it’s not a competition or a numbers game, but there are more people who love you here.” He’s right.
