When I called my parents to wish them a happy New Year, my dad answered the phone. “Well, Dad, what’s your New Year’s resolution?” I asked him.
“To make your mother as happy as I can all year,” he answered proudly.
Then mom got on, and I said, “What’s your resolution, Mom?” “To see that your dad keeps his New Year’s resolution.”

Interesting stat a friend sent us…
”If a child leads the way in commitment to Church,
3.5% of families follow,
If mom leads 17%,
if dad leads 93%.
Going to Church this week?
I think a father’s job, when it’s done best, is to get down on both knees, lean over his children’s lives, and whisper, ‘Where do you want to go?’
Every day God invites us on the same kind of adventure. It’s not a trip where He sends us a rigid itinerary, He simply invites us.
God asks what it is He’s made us to love, what it is that captures our attention, what feeds that deep indescribable need of our souls to experience the richness of the world He made.
And then, leaning over us, He whispers, ‘Let’s go do THAT together.”
