Happy Father’s Day!
I have a wonderful, loving father who is thoughtful, kind and gives great advice. Years ago, he decided to create a motto to share with his kids and grandkids – all his best advice in one place. He calls it GLIRP. Clearly, not the most elegant acronym, but some very good life lessons:
G – Don’t be GREEDY
L – LOVE and be Loved
I – Always have INTEGRITY
R – Live the Golden RULE
P – Find and Pursue your PASSION
And, I am so grateful for having had an incredible father-in-law, Ben’s dad, Nelson. Nelson passed away just last year from lung cancer and we are still heartbroken. He was an avid hunter and outdoorsman, and when we went on family camping trips, he always spent time cleaning up trash – his motto was to leave a place better than you found it. He certainly did.
I’m hoping you have a dad in your life you look up to and whose advice you treasure. And I’m hoping we can all have a little more GLIRP and spend more time trying to make the world a better place.
All the best to dads and the kids who love them -
