Lessons from Daddy

On Father’s Day someone posted a question on Facebook…..What are some  things your Father taught you?  Some of the things that came to my mind right away were these:

How to drive a standard transmission vehicle.

How to check oil in a car.

How to wiggle my ears.

How to bray like a donkey.

That a loyal pet is worth tears.

How to enjoy peanut butter straight from the jar with a spoon.

How to work hard, really hard.

That love is defined by what you give, not what you get.

How to sacrifice for others.

How to accept disappointment.

How to die well.
