Four years later

Four years ago, my father passed away.  Usually this day is filled with regret.  A day filled with thinking about all the things we were going to do someday: the places we were going to travel (fishing trips like Canada or the Final Four, the things he wanted to do (retire and take some cookie lessons), and the real conversations we didn’t get to have.

Instead of focusing on all the regrets I have.  I want to start a new tradition. The tradition of focusing on the things I’m grateful. That’s why today instead of focusing on the things I regret, I’m focusing on feeling grateful.

That’s why I spent the day with my wife and kinds.  I thought about the things my dad taught me, the lessons I learned, and the goals I’m achieving  because of the things my father taught.
