Hi friends. Happy Monday!
Today is extremely difficult for me because it marks a year since my father’s sudden death. As a believer, I know to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Yes, as a human, I weep almost everyday for my father because simply there is No one else on earth quite like him. However, I also think of the goodness of him, the practice of doing good work is what he instilled in my brother and me, and that’s a part of the legacy of him.
I believe that a legacy last long and through generations. Yes, we can create side hustles and do all sorts of things for easy cash. The lessons I’ve learned from my father may not necessarily be about money and business, but it’s humanity. He treated others with respect, he was dedicated to his family, church, community and workplace. He worked hard and did so all the way until the day he passed away, I don’t know about you but I feel that’s the ultimate dedication. I’ve learned patience from him as well. Since having my son, I’ve learned that there is a certain type of patience you must have with children and he definitely had that. He didn’t like to call children bad even if they were lol. He just felt that needed better direction and attention. He loved my son so much that he called him “his son”. As Stephen Jr., grows up I will continue to tell him about how important he was to his grandpa.
Loyalty, respect, remaining humble are lessons you taught me and I will continue to pass that on to my children. I love and miss you Daddy forever and always!
