“My father didn’t tell me how to live;
he lived, and let me watch him do it.”
Clarence Budington Kelland
This reminds me of my own dad: a guy who led by example. He was a man of integrity, a man of great talent and accomplishment, a man of faith, and a man who cared deeply about his family. These traits were evident to us, his children. We watched and learned.
I always looked up to him, but my appreciation for and admiration of him was augmented with the passage of time. With age comes perspective.
He – and my mom – are missed.
Happy Father’s Day to all dads!
