Good Morning!


A thought to ponder

     What is the best gift a father can give a son?

     Three young men gave answers which surprised.

     They did not express a desire for material possessions (some who were asked had nothing else but bikes or stuff on their minds.)

These three answers made us THINK.

1.The best gift my Dad could give me is this.    Love my Mum forever and treat her always with respect.

2.            I think, honestly speak about Love and Faith and show it in actions.

3.  By example teach me to own up to when I screw up and  be told that everyone makes mistakes.  Learn about forgiveness from him.

Few youngsters have families once considered ‘normal’ but these answers right out of the spectrum of the material were  expressions of a desire I believe they longed to have, but didn’t.

What example can we show to someone – old or young on our journey this day?

Journey well and have a great week!.

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    Living a life in accordance with one’s values — an invaluable lesson from any parent to any child. Values are needed to guide actions, but values absent of actions are empty words. And “normal” is a meaningless label. Thank you for sharing this!
