My Father Was Proud Of Me!

My dad was not the most demonstrative person in the world.

He was pretty low key and sparing in his emotions--always laid back and never loud.

So I always had my doubts: Is he proud of me? Does he approve of me and what I've been doing at all? Or is he maybe a little bit ashamed and hiding his feelings?

Well, guess what I just found in the house?

A large tin box filled with stacks and stacks of my report cards, diplomas, honors, clippings, articles, and programs through the years. It's a veritable treasure trove of my accomplishments throughout my school days and early professional years, and it was clearly assembled with great care and a lot of dedication. It's the kind of thing I would have put together myself if I was even more vain than I am!

On top of it, in my father's handwriting, it says:

"A record of great achievements!"

I'm going to start bawling.

NATURE? / NURTURE? (STRONG WILLED MOTHER / WEAK FATHER)

So does this deep rooted realization of your father's love and pride finally means that you will be switching teams???

I had a moment like that with my uncle...almost did a Sally Field.
