Just the usual Ordinary Everyday Nothing I do Everyday---Why?
words overheard ! ! !
As my son-in-law walked through the back door holding back his tears..as he heard the last words of a discussion his wife and son were having....his son came running up to him with a giant hug and a big kiss...saying " I am so proud of you papa" "I am glad to be your son, cause you are one of those special men..that get the job done". Ran off to play...without another word.
He asked his wife what that was all about..and she told him this little story:
At school she had over heard some of the children bragging about how their dad's had such great jobs. Big executives with secretaries.. and they stopped and asked (let's say Bob) what his dad did? Bob kinda mumbles and says "oh he's just a working dad".
Well after arriving home and getting Bob a snack she talked to him about what his papa does for a job. She told him though what he said was true it was very important what he does.
Though it takes executives with their big desks and plans and memo's and secretaries to turn their dreams into reality...it takes a working man to get those big jobs done.
All the shops and stores and trucks that do their daily hauls...the industry's that make our country great...The house's you see being built...your playgrounds..and ball fields..are all done by the common working man.
If all the bosses left their desks and no plans were made...the industry wheels would still run....but without the men like your dad... nothing would get done and we would be without all these things we take for granite.... it takes the common working man to get the Big jobs done...
Then my son-in-law let the tears fall and gave my daughter a big hug....
G-Ma :o) hugs
