Thankful for a Dad who taught by showing not telling
Sometimes you are lucky enough to know someone that just raises your standards. Not to make you feel worse about yourself but to show you how much more you can be. How hard work counts, not at all costs and that how you treat others actually means far more than anything else.
I have been lucky to have that someone, throughout my entire life. A beacon of fortitude, a gentleman of poise and class and someone who sets the standard higher than most can only dream to reach.
So today’s gratitude post is a simple video photo montage including some rather cringe worthy childhood pictures which emphasize the permanence of parenthood. The permanence of a father’s love and care. I know we’re not all as lucky to have this kind of love and support in our lives, either ever or currently, but we can always learn from others and their influence. My father did this through the people he taught, the many thousands he managed and the communities and charities that he supported. He sets the standard and embodies one of my favorite quotations by Louisa May Alcott:
“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.”
