Today I’m Thinking About My Dad

Today I find myself really thinking about my dad.

My dad was a courageous and decorated warrior and a fierce competitor; yet he was a gentle and kind man as well. It was a lovely combination.

My dad served this nation with the kind of character and ethics that involved truth, faithfulness to his promises, and honor.

My dad gave, to each of his children, the knowledge that we could and should fight for what was important—along with the self esteem needed to follow through with our choices.

My dad loved nature, and he certainly passed that love on to his children.

My dad rose to the challenges his lifetime produced. For sure.
