A life lesson from my father

I remember wanting something, anything as a child – and it didn’t matter what is was… a skirt, a skateboard ramp, a pet – he knew that we could make something better and less expensive at home. While we didn’t always make the item that was so wanted at the moment, it was an incredible lesson. We can do anything.

This lesson didn’t just apply to stuff – it applied to life. He decided he wanted to fly; he got his pilot’s license. He didn’t want to work for someone else; he started his own business. I am so proud and impressed by his accomplishments. And the part that makes me the happiest? That he thinks I’m just like him.

Happy father’s day, dad! And to all of those wonderful fathers out there.
