Storyteller

My father taught me everything I know about love and being happy. He knew about people. He didn't see much reason that I had to learn the hard way the things that he had already learned. He's the reason I tell stories. He told stories to me.

Every story he told was true, even the ones that didn't happen.

Hi E,
I'm glad about your father. I think I like him. Good question. That's the next part of the story.

>"I'm glad about your father. "

What a bizarre & unusual comment.

About a month ago my father was hit by a car while trying to cross a street - it was a bad injury, broken hip, operations, etc. especially serious for someone who is 86.

Today was the first day I was able to talk w/ him and learn that he is ok.

I am truly glad that your father is well. I won't pretend that I knew any other. I'm so sorry he was hurt before.

I love that line. It says so much in such a few words about the wisdom of his stories and how much you learned from him.

I apologize if I've already asked you, but with Blogger acting so crazy of late, I've lost track of which blogs I was able to get through to, and which ones I didn't.

I'd like to invite you to join our brand new, family friendly BLOG VILLAGE TopList. I think your blog would be a great addition.
