Remember back when you knew everything?

Sad to say, once upon a time I had a pretty dim view of my dad because his work involved manual labor - I thought successful people worked in offices. I really did not have a clue about what life was really about. I had no clue about things like the honor of hard work (my dad worked several jobs) and the sacrifices involved in taking care of your family.

Looking back I have to say that most of the lessons I have learned in life have come pretty hard. And maybe that is the point. We can look at others and learn from them or we can, like teenagers, ignore the life lessons that are right before our eyes.


  1. I remember those days when I knew it all, had all the answers and thought everyone was dumb.

    I also remember the day that my dad just seemed to get smarter and smarter - oh wait, that was the same day I realized I didn't know everything and dear ole dad had been around a block or two.

    Nice trip down a couple of paths of memory lane, thanks KB!

  3. HaHaHa love that poster.

    You know some people don't think "Preachers" work.

    When our son was in 1st grade, the teacher asked him what work his father did. He had an immediate answer "My Dad don't work, he just goes to the church every day."

    The teacher suggested we clarify a Pastor's job to our son!!!!

  4. It's amazing how smart my dad became after I grew up, and how much I miss his wisdom now.
