"In terms of your happiness, in terms of the matters that make you proud or sad, nothing—I repeat, nothing—will have so profound an effect on you as the way your children turn out. You will either rejoice and boast of their accomplishments or you will weep, head in hands, bereft and forlorn, if they become a disappointment or an embarrassment to you." - Gordon B. Hinckley

Oh, I hope I am not am embarrassment or disappointment to my dad, and for him to be proud of me would be a true accomplishment. Perhaps I will never know.

Happy Father's Day to all fathers!
