I’ve had a blessed life and have been grateful for all the different roles I’ve played in life. Dad to two girls and Papaw to two boys are no exceptions. This year my favorite youngest daughter brought my favorite granddaughter into our lives. I look forward to many more memories with my family.
There has been much more laughter than tears and many more memories than regrets. That’s what life is all about.
Note: Tears during two trips down the aisle and father/bride dances do not count as bad tears.
I tell a story in my leadership seminars about the pleasure of watching a leader grow and develop while knowing you played a small role in their development. I wish that feeling and experience on each attendee. Every time I tell the story, Father’s Day hits my mind and I totally lose my train of thought. I do believe I recover before my attendees notice.
I think about watching my two girls grow into beautiful young women.
I know. I know. God did that.
However, what I’m most proud of is even though they have their own personalities, they both have the same good, kind heart. They are both wonderful parents as a result of that heart.
I know, I know, God did that too, but you know what I’m most grateful for?………….
He let me help.
Happy Fathers Day to all dads.
What are they leaving with?
Do they have a loving home?
Have I showed them right from wrong?
When we’re miles and miles apart,
there’s a choice to be made,
and they look inside their heart,
what are they leaving with?
