What's the most significant lesson dad taught you?
My Dad would always tell me, "Even when you are aggravatted and feel like giving up remember hard work pays off." My Dad worked his butt off to put me through a great education program in high school. My senior year he got very ill but he promised that he would not give up and would fight to see me walk the graduation stage and that he did. He also saw me become his little teacher when I graduated college ( years later. So when I want to give up I remember what he told me and how much he pushed and stayed strong to see me graduate. He has been gone three years but his words resonate with in me every single day!
