Thank you Dad for teaching me the life lessons that shaped who I am today

Father & Daughter 2

by Sheryl Jedlinski

  1. Always speak and stand up for who I am and what I believe in.
  1. Set goals for myself, believe that I can accomplish anything I set my mind to do, work hard and always do my best.
  1. Life won’t always go as planned, and failure is not the end of the world. No one succeeds without navigating a few bumps in the road along the journey.
  1. Fairness is in the eyes of the beholder, or observer. If fairness is in the eye of the beholder, then the person who is observing gets to decide what is fair.
  1. My Dad encouraged me to talk to him about anything, any time. He called this “having rapport,” and welcomed any disagreements that arose. The bottom line was letting me know that he would always love me, and be one of the greatest supporters in my life. In turn, I will always be daddy’s little girl.

    Awesome from the heart blog. We know your dad and he is, indeed, special! Do not know what reports you were referring to I your email, but hope it is all resolved in a positive way. Hope the boys r all well and that u are continuing to do well physically and mentally. Our trip continues to be an amazing, interesting and fun learning experience. We r in Bratislavia and leaving for Prague tomorrow. Watched some great soccer games in Vienna in a park with huge screens about 40,000 other soccer fans. Was fun. Sadly, as when we were in the Balkans we are learning more and more that he Jews are but a footnote in their history. Have visited Jewish sites in every city. It is all very sad. Went to the Pride Parade yesterday in Vienna. …was interesting not as good as Chicago’s parade. Lots of hugs. Larry and Tem
