Good Wednesday to you! If you are new to the Koffee Klatch then welcome. Everyone is welcome to join in the conversation. The only rule we have in here is we are not allowed to mention the 'P' word...lol The 'P' stands for pain..sssshhhhh This is a time for some laughs, giggles and even a bit of insight. That's where we're going today.
What kinds of values do you think your parents instilled in you? Did they use particular phrases to guide you toward the types of person you are now? Or maybe it was a grandparent or other relative or friend who most influenced your formative years.
For me it was mostly my dad. He and I were buddies. He was firm yet loving and I respected him for that. Dad was the model I followed in my life of trying to help others. Dad taught vocational agriculture and had the FFA program at our school. But he always was doing way more than the bare essentials for his students. He often was a father to young men who either had no father figure in their life. They loved and respected him and his values. As I grew up and went through high school I was always volunteering....still do, obviously. I will always be grateful to him for passing on the love of helping and sharing with others.
How did your parents influence the person that you are today?
