How blessed our children are to have him.  Even in small ways, he teaches them how to love.  He gets them started, offers advice, encouragement, and help when they are ‘stuck’.  And then instills confidence by letting them carry on without him.  Would that every child had such a father.  He is truly worth more than a thousand schoolmasters.  What he teaches is goodness, kindness, and love.
