How I was raised to the T. Never regretted or resented it. Quite grateful actually. Although it took me way longer in life than it should've until those lessons took affect. I agree with this song whole heartedly. You may not.
Boy, does that hit home for me. I sure miss my daddy reading his Bible as we sat beside a coal fired stove. Can't say that I miss his belt, but he was a man and I definitely needed that sort of attention to walk in the straight and narrow. Thanks for posting this.
Will be 40 years in a few months that I last saw my dad. I am 49...
Still, he set the foundation and I see him every day when I look in the mirror.
Now I have to guide my kids through troubled times and I hope that they can look back one day and say I did ok.
