This morning, I wanted to wish one of my six favorite brothers, Steve, a Happy Father’s Day. As any good man would reply, he said, “Thanks”.
What I love about my brother is that he is genuine. And, I think he knew I was speaking genuinely. That brother, Steve, has done a great deal for me for many years.
Steve has three wonderful children and a handful of grandchildren. I have none of the above.
But here’s the story. I also had to ask him how he was going to spend this father’s day. He replied, “I have to train a bartender”. (Steve has established and maintained a bar for twenty some odd years……quite a feat. That’s sincere)
Knowing that training a bartender is a difficult task when his children should be making him breakfast, I asked him a simple question before parting words:
” Can you teach this bartender how not to steal?”
His response? “Impossible”.
I laughed and wished him a great day.
His laughter was my medicine on this day.
