Thanks, Dad.

My dad has given me many pearls of wisdom. It seems every few days I am reminded of something he taught me. Some are words he said, others are things he modelled. Some are exceptionally practical, others are incredibly profound. Some I appreciated immediately, others have made an impact over time. In no particular order…

  1. Family comes first.
  2. Save for the future.
  3. Always keep the gas tank above half.
  4. Accept individuals for who they are.
  5. Travel when you can.
  6. Give people the benefit of the doubt.
  7. Forgive those who need forgiveness.
  8. Savour each and every day.
  9. Enjoy the drive.
  10.  Live with hope.

Thanks, Dad.

    Seems you don’t need Father’s Day to appreciate the deep and abiding love of a good father! Seems like your list (that is, your father’s list) is a pretty good guide as to how to live well.
