We don’t celebrate our friends enough. We spend time with them, we enjoy their company, but we rarely take a moment to understand how our lives have been affected by them. This is a series of or collection of blog posts that I’ll make one at a time until I’ve got all of you. Don’t feel left out. The timeline is large enough that I’ll get you. There is no rhyme or reason to who I choose. Except for this one. My best Friend. My Dad. Let’s get started.
Who is He? He’s my old man.
How do you know him? simple enough.
How do you spend time together? Usually with a glass of wine, beer or mind altering beverage, the two of us likely gambling or conquering world problems. Lot’s of laughter usually due to the awful things we are saying when together. Telling stories almost too big to be true.
What have you learned from him? Generosity. Short Answer. He teaches me how to give it all away even when it seems I have nothing to offer. He’s taught me the value of time. Minutes matter. Moments are all we have. He’s taught me how to be the perfect father. I am an honest person because of him. He’s taught me how to be a good person and doesn’t judge me.
Have you picked up any of his bad habits? Most. Never became a smoker. I eat too much and tend to have a temper.
How has he changed you? He’s my father so it’s a tricky question. My father molded me. As an adult, there was one moment when life was getting tricky and he said “don’t take the easy road”. That was enough. At that time.
Describe him in a sentence Everyone thinks they are his favorite… and they are.
I love you Dad.
