Being a father is never easy. It is much more than simply getting up, going to work, and bringing home a paycheck to make sure that you keep a roof over your head and food on the table. Being a father also means living with integrity; being a man of open honor and honesty. Some of the greatest lessons I learned from my father came not from what he said, but what he did. Our children watch our every step to see how we live our lives and whether or not our walk matches our talk. The legacy we leave is seen in how they eventually walk themselves.
