Happy Fathers Day.

For many years my father wore a baseball cap

that read: “Everybody is a legend in their own mind”

The thing is that, it was in English and he spoke no

English that I knew of.  Yet he always had an explanation

as to the meaning of it. It was: “expect nothing but do everything

then you will be able to make your own life, your own future.”

He was not an educated person as it refers to school education

but he had survived some of the toughest times in the history

of Mexico. He was never in debt as he never borough for anything.

He never had less than two jobs, yet he always had time for family.

And he was ever-present for all that mattered when it was about

home and family. Never knew how he did it, but he did.

From him I learned that: “The size of my frustrations was equal

to the size of my expectations.” I also learned that it was up to me

to get and have anything I wanted. I had my first business venture

when I was 8 going on 9 years old and I have never forgotten the

lessons I learned then.  He never did care about the way he looked

even though he always looked good and well put together. I learned

how great it felt to accomplish and obtain things that we cared about.

Not a perfect man by any-means but a great man all the same.

All I can hope for is that someday my kids will feel that way about me.

Happy Fathers Day to you all that have kids and a family to take care of.

HAPPY FATHERS DAY.
