The wisdom is reaching far beyond what we see. Delight in the journey
A short but extremely sweet monologue from a woman relating brief snatches from her childhood and the lessons she learned from her father. Growing up with limited financial means her father shared instead pieces of himself. As a girl who grew up practically without a father I found myself envying the author for the time and attention she got with hers. Though the tone is mostly humorous you feel the closeness of their relationship; I'd give it ten stars if I could.
