Thirty Things My Dad Taught Me
I come from a long line of cheapskate do it yourselfers who believe in laughing lots and always kissing your loved ones good bye. My Dad is the rightful heir of many hand-me down tools and life lessons. As one of his four kids I'm the recipient of the hand-me down wisdom that comes with these worn instruments, calloused hands and seasoned heart.
Here are some of the things I've learned from the first man who ever loved me....
1. A rope is an apt substitute for a broken belt, for months in fact!
28. The only toys a kid really needs are a sprinkler and an old tire
29. When teenage sisters are fighting, a Dad may assume they will be open to the advice “you are mad because you want to be mad”. This is not a safe assumption
30. Love, forgiveness, support and perseverance is what makes us a strong family, not normalcy
