7 THINGS I THANK MY DAD FOR

... defining altruism, integrity, perseverance,
and loyalty by your example

... teaching me that life does not come with
money-back guarantees and warranties

... showing me how to march to the beat of a
different drummer on a road less traveled

... reminding me that a cluttered room equals
a cluttered mind


... showing me that Dads do housework as well

as moms - when the spirit moved you


... passing on to me our family's greatest

and most valuable asset - our reputation

... cultivating my sense of humor

    That is very nice. Cultivating your sense of humor touched me. My mother was wonderful at this trait. It is so important. I see so many parents stifling humor in their relationship.

    It is really a precious gift and adds to memories.

    Hugs,
    Connie

    I was blessed with a wonderful father, too. We are both very fortunate! I especially liked the "A cluttered room equals a cluttered mind" part. Good food for thought.
