Why my Dad is the best dad

20140614-230859-83339381.jpg

You may disagree with me. In fact, I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt since I probably haven’t met your dad. However, I believe my dad is the best dad I could have ever had. Here is why I believe that:

  1. He is a man of integrity. He says what he means and commits to all products he says yes to.
  2. He is a man of quiet strength. Yet he has always spoken when he has needed to.
  3. He is an example of a loving husband and dad. Through his example, I was taught each day how to be those things.

On this Father’s Day, I want to give a big thank you to Edgar Spear. You’re still the number one dad in my book!

His whole life flashed before his screen

We make all sorts of decisions each day. Throughout the day, I’m tempted to spend my time in front of a screen. Whether it’s a television, computer screen or a mobile phone, it can get so easy to get lost in a glowing rectangle.

Sometimes, I can justify it because I am working. Other times,  I wonder where the time went. That glowing rectangle can sure hypnotize me!

Then I remember my time is so limited on this planet. My kids have grown. Did I spend too much time in front of a screen when I should have been in front of them?

Time is short. Teach me to number my days, that I may gain a heart of wisdom.  Our time is short. Make sure most of it isn’t in front of a glowing rectangle!

Cartoon: Christmas Stress

Cartoon of a boy with a wreath on his head

 

It’s that time of year where the stress level goes through the roof. I wonder if the mom in this cartoon placed the wreath on the boy’s head in an absent-minded frenzy or in frustration. Either way, it’s going to be extra hard for this boy to be good until Christmas!
