Is there a special memory that makesyou smile when you least expect it? Most of these daughters and sons were eagerto express the gratitude they had carried with them through the years. Others wantedto share lessons and memories and, most important, pass them down to their ownchildren.
Donec in tortor in lectus iaculis vulputate. I know to me this book was very touching; reading stories of the many great dads and their lasting impact on their children. The neat thing is that with stories covering the happy times, the sad times and everything in between, most any reader can relate to at least a story or two. Keep Me Safe. Grammar and spelling are spot on as well, only problem I seemed to have was loading the webpage, seemed slow. Fantastic, If you are a Father you will especially enjoy this. I just bought this after Tim Russert's death, and it is a great tribute to fathers.
This book is for all fathers, young or old, who can learn from the men inthese pages how to get it right, and to understand that sometimes it is the littlegestures that can make the big difference for your child. For some in this book, theappreciation came later than they would have liked.
But as Wisdom of Our Fathersreminds us, it is never too late to embrace it. I am convinced that everyone has at least something to be grateful for and the majority of us could write an endless list.
Wisdom of Our Fathers forces us all to think about one part of our lives that I hope all of us can share. I am not saying that you have to have a perfect relationship with your father. In fact some of us may feel the opposite. It could be your blood father, or a father figure.
Or perhaps now you are the father and this book relates you back to your relationship with your son or daughter. Whatever the case may be, take a minute to just be grateful for the hand you were dealt. It will make you better for the day, the month and for the life of the others with whom you interact. As I get around to writing this review, years after first picking up the book I try to thumb through it each year , I am saddened to say that it has now become a tribute to Tim and the relationship to his son Luke.
Tim passed away only a few months ago, much earlier than he should have. Sometimes we need a tool to help us realize the things that are right under our nose. I hope you agree that it is the interactions, relationships and learning that set a great life apart from the others.
Those are the building blocks that create success and fulfillment. In this instance we focus on the father figure, but this goes for any important figure in your life. I, as much as anyone, understand the importance of a mother as well, and I promise to pay a further tribute to her in a future review. The two go hand in hand and everyday I am grateful for both.
Enjoy the memories these stories bring to life as you read through them.
Realize how you relate, and most importantly let yourself be reminded of the people that put you where you are. Take the time to feel and show your gratitude.
Both of you will be so much better for the experience. Buy Wisdom of Our Fathers at Amazon. Leave a comment: I always appreciate hearing your experiences so please share whatever they might be.
What was your relationship with your father? What did he teach you and what do you plan to pass along to the next generation?

But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much the old man had learned in seven years. I stumbled upon the idea of focusing on my father — a successful consultant and wonderful although perpetually growing father to his 4 kids. Not sure of my approach though, and not sold on my idea, I came to your site as per usual to search for some guidance, which is when I came across this post.
As always, thank you and keep up the good work, you are making a difference! Best, Nikki. Nice blog, thanks for sharing the info.
Its not too often that you come across a blog post where the writer knows what they are ranting about.
