Some Stages of Fatherhood

I included this little item in the bulletin last year, and in reading it this year, it became a little more poignant for me.  It might be a little corny, but it reminded me a little of my Dad, who served as my deacon last year on this date

4 years: My Daddy can do anything!
7 years: My Dad knows a lot”¦a whole lot.
9 years: My Father does not know quite everything.
12 years: Oh well, my Father doesn’t know that either.
14 years: My Father is really old-fashioned.
21 years: Oh man – he’s really out of date!
25 years: He knows something about it, but not much.
30 years: I need to find out what Dad thinks about it.
35 years: Before we decide, let’s get Dad’s idea first.
55 years: I wonder what would Dad have thought about that?
65 years: My Dad literally knew everything!
75 years: I wish I could talk it over with Dad one more time.
