My Father's Words

Sunday, September 08, 2013

My father died over 15 years ago, but his words live on in my heart and mind.
The other day I was driving down the highway to get to work on time, and I heard those words:
"Remember, Jackie, driving above the speed limit will not save you any time. If you get pulled over by a policeman, it will take a good 15 minutes. Longer, if they are not in a good mood. Always drive the speed limit or less."
Yes, I slowed down, and I smiled at the wisdom of my Dad.
What are you saying to the people around you that they will remember when you are gone?
