What did your mom or dad do when you were a child that you miss now?

November 19, 2013 § 3 Comments

That was the question I posed on Twitter last night. The answers were heartfelt, some just heart-breaking beautiful moments. When given an opportunity, Twitter can be a beautiful genuine place, instead of the often cynical one because cynicism is “cool”. I think there is nothing cooler than being sincere and real and raw.

The best memories people shared were the simplest. If these don’t inspire you to be a great father I don’t know what will.

The thing I loved the most is how many people mentioned their dads. You don’t always get that, most people always talk about their mothers. It was great seeing fathers getting some sun. We need more fahters who create great memories for their children.

Below are the responses:

I thought this exchange was beautiful
