It may not have been the first time this advice has been shared, but it was perhaps one of the most emotional moments in which I have heard it said. As I attended a funeral, one of the family members shared about a piece of advice the deceased had given him. He said that even though the deceased was a man of few words, and gave little advice, not long after his children were born, he told him, “the best thing you can do for your children is to love their mother.”
What powerful words and loving advice. And they were said with tears not only from him, but his wife and children, too. Evidently the advice was heard, and followed. How awesome that this father and grandfather shared this wisdom and that it touched, in a positive way, generations to follow.
