I am an intense person who doesn't like to do anything half-way just like my father. I don't like to give up, and will tenaciously try to find the 3rd way of solving a problem. I am a positive optimist, looking at the positive aspects of an unhappy outcome or a bump in the road. I like to stay on the sunny side of life.
I have a hard time sitting still through a sports event because I get totally sucked into the action. Piano recitals are a piece of cake! I supported our daughters, giving encouragement when needed. All these things I learned from my father and the older I get, the more I realize how much I am like him.
I miss him terribly, but know I'll see him again when I go home to be with the Lord.
