I am who I have become in a large part because of the purposed care and loving guidance of my father. The older I get, I realize that the experiences he has imparted to me were invaluable. I repent that I have not always received his help and wisdom with graciousness, weakness of my own pride.
But as the years pass, I have learned to come to him for that advice, help and wisdom...
...and have learned that he is not only my father, but a treasured friend.
I look forward to many more years as friends. :-)
