10 Pearls [Lessons] from MY Father

From his flaws, wits and wise!

My dad is hilarious! The running joke in my family is that God created him on Sabbath day while lying in a hammock sipping Piña colada. My dad was fashioned in joy; he is extra special, fun and hilarious. My friends say my family should be on reality television, and my siblings and I definitely agree. Don’t get it twisted; my dad will be the star of the show, followed after by yours truly, of course. My dad is lit and equally annoying to his children. My life and our family wouldn’t be what it is without my father’s antics and personality.

As I launch Pearls from our Fathers, a story project about other fathers, I thought it necessary to share 10 lessons, pearls if you may, from my father. Some pearls he gave me, and others I have had to dig up from the not so pretty moments in our relationship.

  • I am valued, loved and worthy. For as long as I can remember, my father lights up when I walk into a room. EVERY TIME!

PS: This list was inspired by a a story project I’m currently working on called “Pearls from our Fathers.” You can check out PFOF stories here.
