Growing up. Change. Being a father. This episode retells stories of my father and me as we negotiate the waters of DAD-DOM. My now grown children Heidi & Riley are featured, but as their younger selves. Stories include: Griff, Heidi’s dramatic and embarrassing boyfriend. Also, a story of my 7 year old son and me spending Sundays dumpster diving for materials for his tree house (pirate ship), and how that experience help bond a father and son. There's a story of how I mishandled a crisis when I was 17 years old and a camp counselor for 11 year olds We complete this episode with the story of a boy and his father coming apart and what it took to put them back together again. You never know just how funny and effective little moments of our lives, can become major life long connections of love.
We retell ife's stories that helped us become who we are now. The stories can be quite funny, ironic, as well as painful. The human spirit fights to succeed, while at the same time, we try our best to keep adding day to day value to our lives. When we take that story-step backward, we often rediscover the humor, love and sometimes we even find needed closure we once overlooked. There is more to life than the day to day. Life passes by quickly & sometimes it’s hard to let the past go. So, with humor and optimism we present this podcast.
