Happy Tuesday love bugs!
In honor of Father’s Day week I thought I would share a throw back picture of me and my sweet Dad 🙂 as well as one of my favorite life lessons from him.
Dad is full of amazing life lessons but one of the many things that I love about him is that he always showed us what kind of people to be, not just told us. Growing up, our family was so big into the Filipino American Association which meant we were constantly busy with parties and festivals.
Guess who was always there early helping to setting up. My Dad. Guess who was always there with the kitchen crew making sure everything was cooked and ready to go? My Dad. Guess who was always in the serving line, ready to serve people. My Dad. Guess who stayed late to help clean up (and made his kids help too). My Dad.
Now, can you guess who we can always count on if we need someone to talk to or just someone to be there? My Dad!
I want to be just like him in that my friends and family will always know that I will show up for them when they need me. #bemorelikeManny 🙂 He is always ready to do things for people without ever expecting anything from them. My Dad is the most sincere, kind and loving human being that if someone said anything bad about him, you’d know it was a lie. Also, I have never heard him say anything bad about anyone. I’m not even exaggerating. I promise you, I tried to think of at least one thing LOL and couldn’t come up with anything he’s ever said negative about someone.
If I ever said anything semi negative about someone’s situation he would respond with “well, that’s their life” or “that’s not our business”. Basically his nice way of saying “stay out of it Lynn”. LOL
I’m am so far from perfect but if I wake up and try to #belikeManny more and more everyday I think I’m on the right path. I want my friends and family to know, without a doubt, that I will be there for them when they need me. Knowing someone that can trust me like that truly gives me so much happiness. Dependable, trustworthy, hard working and kind. That’s my Dad and I wanna be just like him when I grow up! 🙂
I would love to hear advice that your Dad gave you growing up!
Wishing you all a wonderful Father’s Day week!
