There are twelve days until Father’s Day. Today’s quote reminds us that children look up to their parents, and are instructed to obey and honor them. How we safeguard that trust invested in us as parents, builds a lasting legacy for our children and their children, too.
I decided in my life that I would do nothing that did not reflect positively on my father’s life. – Sidney Poitier
As dads we carry the trust and respect of our children, and we ought to honor that trust and caring by holding ourselves to the highest standard, but also working hard to mend fences when we make mistakes. We want our children to consistently remember us well.
