Jenna and Ellen presented me with a very thoughtful gift today. A book/journal called "My Dad.. His Stories, His Words" (Compendium Inc.). A hardback 4x6 journal for me to handwrite answers to 38 thoughtful questions:
#1 "Dad, what kind of house did you grow up in, and what was the old neighborhood like?
#5 "Dad, what's the best thing your dad and/or mom taught you?"
#12 "Dad, what music did you grow up listening to?"
and the list continues to the last question.....
#38 "Dad , how do you want future generations of your family to remember you?"
What a great project for me.... and how my girls know me so well to present me with this project. When I quipped ... this is a gift for you..... they quickly responded - yes Dad we would really love this..... but we also know how much you love blogging :)
The perfect Father's Day response by my two lovely girls!
