“One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters.” – George Herbert
It’s 1 : 00 PM on day 2706 of my journey towards independence and I managed to pray, read John 13:34 and promote my 50 New Feet Campaign benefiting MiracleFeet – raised $7 431 only $5 069 more to raise by June 17, 2018 to help 50 kids with clubfoot (thanks so much to everyone who has helped out so far).
Today is my father’s birthday and although I know that public declarations of affections make him uncomfortable life is short and without him I literally wouldn’t be here so I’m going to make him uncomfortable just for today. Happy birthday daddy thank you for teaching me that there is magic in small acts of kindness. Your desire to empower inspires – I LOVE LOVE LOVE that you cannot turn anybody in need away I’m me because of the way you choose to live (I still remember a gardener showing up at our gate one morning and even though there was nothing for him to do you invented things for him to do just so he wouldn’t starve that day and you didn’t want to just give him the money because you wanted to give him the dignity of earning his wage [ as long as I live I will never ever forget that morning it touched my heart in such a profound way]).
