aggie  ·  link  ·  parent  ·  post: What does it mean to be a father?

Observing my dad as I was growing up, I think there were two big things I learned from him. One when I was a child, another when I was an adult.

When I was a kid, I saw that my dad had power, and he used in a specific way. He is a very gifted man in specific ways. And my dad tried to use that power to serve other people when he could, and to protect us as a family. He almost never used that power just to serve himself; it was a tool he used to help other people.

The other thing I learned from my dad, once I was an adult, is that you're never to old to evaluate who you are, and how you can improve yourself. I've gotten to watch my parents grow and reconcile with each other in really incredible ways the last few years. It's so important to stay humble and open to what those close to you say you might need to change.
