Living Under the Influence of my Father!
Today, my Dad's mind isn't the same as it used to be, but I still see him in my life daily in how I live my life, how I parent and how I attempt to find the positive in every situation. I don't know as much about electrons, neutrons and protons as he did (he spent four hours teaching me everything he knew about electricity after one simple question I had in 6th grade) and I don't listen to classical music in my car. However, I appreciate his love of singing, as I enthusiastically sing every day even though I'm a little off key. I appreciate his sense of humor as I giggle at goofy things. I appreciate his love for his family as I love my family to the moon and back. Then I appreciate his never forgotten love of God. Just a month ago, he told me that Jesus loved him and we sang "Jesus Loves Me" together. It's those moments that I treasure as I know that my Dad still has his priorities on the Lord.
I love you Daddy! Happy Father's Day!
