Great Advice ~ was read 1/7/2020

I sometimes forget that my father and grandfather both wrote me actual books of advice, for me personally. Granddad’s was written when I was five. Dad wrote it over several years beginning when I turned six. Odd, but I feel like Granddad knew my path and heart more than my dad.

Today I got them out to read again. 

~ You need great friends and great legal help!

Isn’t that an interesting piece of advice to give a child? It has served me well. Legal advice has been needed in so many unexpected ways and finding legal help that has “your” best needs put first was quite a journey. Thankfully, we found a keeper! He has been amazing and he has trained and groom his son and grandson to be amazing.  It’s helpful to have people to keep your legal matters on track.

~ Remember you are a child of God

Dad, unlike his father, was very strict religiously. As in attending a specific religion and following all the rules. Granddad was more do the right thing and go fishing a lot kind of religion. Still the foundation that my soul is literally a child of God is something that both talked and wrote about often. It thing Grandad would be okay with where I am. I know Dad is not.

(It took them 27 pages to make those points and I started my day at 2:00 am reading them. It may be the way I start the day for awhile, who knows?)

  1. My favorite advice from a parent was never written down. It was said to my wife on the day of our wedding many years ago.
    My father said in his speech at the wedding to my wife “thanks for marrying him, please remember no deposit no return.”

    the audience laughed!
