My father is an amazing man. An amazing father to me, an amazing husband to my mother, an amazing man to everyone. I am lucky and honored to have been birthed and raised by such a fine person.
Dad, you taught me well and this series of posts is my documentation of what you taught me so that perhaps others might find it useful as I did. Maybe our father and son relationship can be brightened even more by knowing that we’ve positively influenced the lives of others, even if only in small ways. What a nice legacy that would be for us.
So let me attempt to do just that.
Dear reader, within the posts that will follow this one will be my attempt to convey to you some of the wisdom I learned from my father, or for which my father’s wisdom served as an entryway into useful knowledge or insight. It is a way I’m honoring my father while doing something I hope will be useful to others. If I were to write these posts as part of a book, I would title the book What my father taught me…and why I am forever grateful.
Each post will be an encapsulation of the wisdom I have gleaned from many years being raised by my father along with the many happy years of an adult relationship with him. Stay tuned to this blog for installments of this post thread. I’m excited to share with you what my father shared with me.
