Lessons from my Father

For Mother's Day I shared some of the lessons I learned from my mom so I thought I would share lessons I learned from my dad for Father's Day.


~to downhill ski without pointing my skis~
~that you can't please everyone if you're doing your job right - in fact, you will more than likely being making someone extremely unhappy if you're doing your job right~
~to check the oil in my car, pay attention to the gas level, and put air in my tires~
~how a man should treat a woman (by observing how he treats my mom)~
~to get on the floor and play - you won't always be able to and getting dirty is worth it~
~to go to all your children's ball games~
~to hold my head high no matter what anyone else says or does to me~
~to stand up for what you believe in regardless of how people respond~
~to lead~
~that sitting around the campfire with a cold beverage in nature is one of the best places to be~
~to spend as much time as possible with your elders~
~to help however and whenever possible~
~the importance of volunteering~
~to wear shoes when driving in the snow~
~to look for the best in people, but not forget the worst - avoid being a doormat~
~how to drive stick shift (this was a joint effort with mom - poor dears!)~

My dad is truly the best dad I could ask for.  He always answers my phone calls with "Hi honey" and leaves me voicemails just checking in to see what I'm up to each day.  He has always been invested in my life, activities, and interests.  On Father's Day and everyday, I'm so thankful for him.

Lov you, dad!

Linking up for Funday Monday
