I spent my youth trying to be opposite of my mom and dad, I swear I thought they were the worst parents. As you get older you realize they weren't so bad and then you realize you have many of their traits.
I remember my first day of college, he wrote me a note on a piece of paper bag. Just thinking about it now, made me smile... it got me thinking about how special that moment was and how it made a big difference in my life.
I imagined that I was sleeping and he was walking down the hall, he grabbed his lunch a light bulb went off in his head, probably smiling and thought " Midori is starting college."
I gotta feeling he was proud. He grabbed a pen and tore a piece of a grocery bag and left this note on my dresser:
You'll do fine in college. You are hard working just like your father.
I love you
That note gave me an extra step to my strut. I was feeling good...I really enjoyed my first day of college. I could not wait to get home to tell my dad.
The moral of the story- Little actions mean so much...those actions creates moments....moments creates memories! My dad taught me to make it count, anything and everything I do. Why, because I can because I am capable because I am hard working just like him!
