My Dad was the man with the Plan B. He was the person, in my life, who had backbone when backbone was required and helped me with the BIG decisions along the way.
I remember a time when my Dad placed his hand on my shoulder in a situation where he was unable to speak. And, through that gesture, he gave me strength to go forward in acceptance and confidence.
Dad was the one who taught me about being directive in my life…so, I knew I wanted to stay the course and keep my head up. He taught me to be able to flex for the inevitable surprise and to do so, without fear.
Dad taught me to have opinions and ideas and never was a dull man around a dinner table. We learned about politics and economics and sports. We talked about EVERYTHING. I guess, in part, I owe this blog to him. ;0)
I love my Dad, for the life he built for his family. This year, my Dad turned 80 and he writes me E Mail. I look forward to his little notes. I couldn’t be prouder of the person he is! My Father is a wonderful man.
