Today is April Fool’s Day, so Happy April Fool’s to you! Today is also my father’s 65th birthday. On this joke of a day, it’s no joke that I am who I am, in large part because of his guidance. I blogged about my dad once before on Father’s Day, but today, I’m reposting it below for my new readers.
For those readers who actually know my dad, know he’s a man you instantly fall in love with. He is a man of his word, a man with a kind spirit, and a true inspiration to me. This is not to sound cocky, but there is nowhere that I don’t go, where I don’t hear, “You’re so-and-so’s daughter? Your dad is such a great guy, ” or “I love him. What a warm and genuine person.” Lucky me.
So Happy 65th birthday, Dad. This one’s for you, and for my thousands of women readers around the world. Here are the life lessons I have learned from my father. They are for everyone. Maybe you’ll pick up a tip or two.
