Things I Learned From my Dad

  1. Remember where you came from and don’t be ashamed of it.
  2. Don’t rely on men to bait your hook for you.  Do it yourself.
  3. Everyone should be at least a half an hour early for church.
  4. I am the best fisher-person ever.
  5. I’m the “best girl in Ottawa”.
  6. When the Holy Spirit came at Pentecost, He baptized ALL of them, not just one.  (I could never get that song right.)
  7. When you stop at a red light, the car in front of you should look like its wheels are resting on the hood of your car.  That way you know you’re not too close.
  8. I am a good parallel-parker.
  9. I am one of the few people on the road who checks their blind spot.
  10. Squeezing out an “I Love You” at the last second of your life is worth a thousand words.
  11. Cancer can take a body, but not a legacy.
  12. You don’t always need lessons to play music.  A beat-up old guitar and a few chords will do.
  13. Any song can be played with just 3 chords.
  14. Bill Gaither should be sainted.
  15. Just because you might not be published or well-known, doesn’t mean you didn’t change the world in your own way.
  16. There’s nobody more important than family.
  17. No matter what the circumstance, hanging your false teeth out of your mouth will make the kids laugh.
  18. I’m just as good as everyone else.
  19. “That’s nothin, m’luvvy.  You’re alright.”
  20. Remember that if the bottom falls out, you can always come home.
