Words of Advice to live by . . .

My Dad was probably one of the hardest working people I know and when I graduated from college and got my first job, he gave me these words of advice . . . "Always work hard and always be nice to your co-workers." When work starts to get the best of me I remember my Dad working at his second job, not once complaining how hard he was working or that he wished he had his weekends free.

Today on Father's Day I wanted to say thank you Dad for all of your sacrifices and for your wise advice. Although you are no longer here, your example and words continue to be great advice to live by . . . much love for that.

Happy Father's Day Everyone!

Edited to add: I just had to add another wonderful thing my dad passed on to me . . . his love for watching sports. He would've totally enjoyed watching the recent Lakers vs Celtics NBA Championship series and would've especially loved the final 5 minutes of Game 7! Thanks also Dad for teaching me about the joys of sports.


  1. Nice sentiment, Kathy. Sounds like good advice too.

  2. Hi Flygirl, thanks so much for your comments. I am forever grateful for my Dad's work ethic example and his great advice. . . Have a great day today.

  3. Great advice! Maybe your dad and my mom were watching the game together in a big TV room up in the sky :)

  4. Hi Girasoli, that's a lovely thought. :) I think they may have been.

    Thanks so much for your comments. Have a great weekend!

  5. I love your post! A really nice tribute to your Dad.

  6. Hi Nancy, thanks so much for your kind comments. My dad was pretty awesome and his awesomeness still carries on in some form each day. . .

    Hope you have a wonderful 4th of July weekend.
