632 – a father who taught me – the importance of integrity, that you always do what you say, that living a God-filled life is the only life worth living, that you love your wife and family through whatever you face, to love gardening and working with my hands, and that nothing tastes better than a cherry tomato picked off the vine and eaten right there. My father is the solid rock of our family, he’s quiet – but you listen when he speaks
633 ~ the opportunity to move into a bigger space, that has a fenced yard
