If you always wanted to be a successful father and always feared you were nothing but a bumbling failure at it, maybe you should read this book.
That was me. Had I failed my most sacred task?
Gifts? With my kids I preferred to be the giver. I loved them with all my heart, not even wanting them spending their hard-earned money on me. I always told them: "Give me only gifts made with your two hands." They ignored that instruction.
But on my seventieth birthday, after all other gifts were given--I thought--my son Ryan placed in my hands a gift he had indeed hand-made, from idea to the final gift I held. It astoundingly verified that though I had made many mistakes, I had not been a total failure as a father. That fantastic gift was the hand-made book, "70 Lessons learned from my father." Maybe it is also your own story as a father.
