If You Were Here Today...

And if I say I really knew you well
What would your answer be.
If you were here today?
- Here Today/Paul McCartney

For whatever reason, as I was walking out of the grocery store this evening I thought to myself "if I were to die tomorrow, how would I be remembered?" I know, that's a morbid thought and there is probably some deep-seated psychological reason for even entertaining the thought. Anyway, and for whatever reason, here's how yours truly would hope to be remembered - if I was "here today".

He never ever intentionally tried to harm anyone.

He never asked anyone to do anything he was not willing to do himself.

He was always interested in learning new things.

He never considered himself to be above anyone else.

He took time out to not be so serious all the time.

He was always challenging himself to try and do the right thing.

A Good Dad
Who tried to do what was right, even if that wasn't always what was easy.
