Tomorrow all around the United States we will be celebrating Fathers Day as we applaud and thank our Dad’s grand-dads and people that were almost like a dad to us. What I still remember about my wonderful Daddy was his patience and his teachings. If I asked a question or permission to do something, he would explain the answer and then go on to ask me if I understood the answer. I know I didn’t always like the outcome especially when he denied me approval of an activity that I wanted to do, but realized later on that he in fact was teaching me common sense. “He would tell me about a situation and what happened and then ask me, what would I do in that same situation?” “Think Millie he would say, and always listen to your instinct. If it doesn’t feel right, don’t do it! Or think of different scenarios and then decide, don’t make rash decisions!”
His teachings have followed all through my life and I admit that I have made some instant decisions that I did not like the outcome, but for the most part I have done good with my use of ” common sense.” I truly feel we are missing this in today’s world with our youth and even some young adults. More so with today’s new wave of technology and freedoms we have to be more diligent for our own and others safety. “It is never too late to learn and so easy to pass on.”
My daddy was my best friend and inspiration and even though he has been in heaven since 1963, it seems like only yesterday.
Happy Fathers Day Daddy.
From your not so little girl but a wiser older woman who thanks you for your love and guidance.
