Thank you

I want to thank those of you, who took the time to leave a comment and make me feel better about myself and the relationship I have with my father. In the course of my life, it has taught me to truly appreciate all the wonderful people who enter my life, if only for a short while. I have found wonderful father figures thoughout my life. Most memorable were my fifth grade teacher, Mr. Hutto, and a man who could have been my father-in-law, if life had worked out differently. The latter died while I was dating his son, but the caring he showed me in the course of one year has forever left an imprint on my heart. Mr. Hutto fostered my love of reading and of science; things I did were good enough for him and I always felt like he was proud of me.

I found a quotation today that fit my feelings for my current position in life. I am content with who I am and what I do.

No nation can rise above its homes. The church, the school, and even the nation, stand helpless before a weakened and degraded home, in building character. The good home is the rock foundation- the cornerstone of civilization. If this, our nation, is to endure, the home must be safeguarded, strengthened, and restored to its rightful importance.”

(Ezra Taft Benson)
