Thank You, Dad

blog_Dad and me at the Community Garden and Grape Arbor HE Spearheaded and Manages


Thank you for always asking good questions and caring about the details of my day to day.


Thank you for showing me what it looks like to enjoy fresh tomatoes from a garden.


Thank you for teaching me compassion and resolve and the confidence that tomorrow is a new day.


Thank you for modeling hard work and the value of a little sweat – and how much better a cold beer tastes at the end of a purposeful day.


Thank you for all the little things you do every day that you don't even know you do.


Thank you for demonstrating patience and how to be firm but loving.


Thank you for having strong hands and a soft heart.

    Thank you, Jacqui, for sharing with us the lovely poem you wrote for your father.

    Your father sounds wonderful (kind and wise) and I'm sure he will treasure your poetic expression of appreciation of him being there for you and all the lessons he has taught you.

    Warmly, Dorlee

      Dear Dorlee,
      This blog is always enhanced by your visits, because your words are sincere.

      My dad taught – and continues to teach - me so much and is a great role model regarding how to age well (as you so aptly noted!).
