Dad’s is the voice that urges kids to go higher and says,
“I know you can do it.
Why don’t you get up and try again?”
I am writing today on what would have been my dad’s 86th birthday. I want to share a few of the lessons I learned from my dad. He was gregarious and lots of fun, not to mention a genius – literally Genius IQ. He loved all kinds of cars, but his favorite was his pickup truck, especially when the camper was on and he was heading to the lake to fish. He also believed everything was negotiable, it doesn’t matter what he was buying, he always asked for a better price! This made him very successful in business.
Many of his lessons were valuable and have helped me advance in life. I am excited to share those. Then there were a few painful ones that created barriers for me that I have been able to move past. I will share those another time.
