My Dad died on February 28, 2020. My Dad is a hero to me. There was a time I thought he looked like Harrison Ford, and since I loved Indiana Jones movies, I wanted to be an archaeologist. Obviously, I did not go down that path. Growing up, I tried to accomplish certain milestones that he didn’t. I graduated from college. I considered becoming an Officer in the Air Force, and my original major that I studied in college was Information Systems because I had planned and hoped to work with him.
There are certain activities that we did together that I continue to enjoy today. One activity was playing golf. I am not nearly as devoted as he was to it, but I enjoy it as a way of socializing and relaxing my mind. He taught me how to work hard and as a manager one lesson that he taught me was to praise in public and to correct in private. He served his country for many years, he worked hard to earn an income, and he served his church. He participated and led small groups that I believe helped impact so many more lives for eternity. Toward the end of his life, he recommitted himself to Christ, and sealed this commitment with a recommitment baptism. He was not perfect, and there’s a lot of pain and trauma that I grew from. In the end I love my Dad and I wish I could talk with him some more. In your journey to being debt free, make memories and write down and talk about the reason why you want to be debt free.
