My dad always says..

My dad is a man with 101 proverbs (is it becoz he was a school principal before?). Whenever we siblings, feel sad / down / angry; he would come to us and say a relevant proverb to motivate and cheer us.

I remember, during school time, I wasnt satisfied with something; dad said "I complaint because I have no shoe, until I saw a man who has no feet." Of course, being very young, I didnt fully understand what he really meant. Basically, he wanted us to appreciate and be blessed with the things what we have.

Here's a video to share with all of you. Thanks June, for sharing.

As usual, I googled him. Meet the man inperson and in Wiki. Tony, you are truly inspiring. I had tears when I saw your videos.

your dad and my dad are alike in that way. My dad is also one for proverbs. Very wise men, your dad and my dad.

Hi Joan, I was sniffing tulips over at Jenn's blog noticed your callsign and lovely profile pic and mosey over.
You sure got a fantastic dad...and by saying all that, you remembered.
Allow me to say, one good mother is worth a hundred teachers.
And, a mother is a never ending song in our heart of comfort, happiness, and being.
We may sometimes forget the words, but we always remember the tune.

You stay easy and have a nice day, Lee.
