Lessons from Dad

Study hard, be smart.

Weigh the pros and cons of your decisions.

Stand on your own two feet.

Hard work is a key to success.

Dream big.

Love what you love with passion.

When you fall off a horse, get right back on.

Laugh a lot and often…

and you’ll come out on the other side just fine.

It’s hard to believe my Dad’s been gone for 16 years today. That’s the two of us, college graduation 1988. He was 52 when he died, only seven years older than I am now. It causes one to think…what more do I have left to do?

  1. It is a beautiful tribute. Hey, you will be here for a longggg time. Who else is going to go out and play when I am 80????? Hope you are doing what you love to do today to celebrate his life.

  2. Love what you love with passion.

    Laugh a lot and often…

    Both wonderful pieces of advice. Your Dad sounds like a very special person – how lucky you are to have known him. :-) (Though they never really leave us)
