Dance with My Father | Tribute to Father's Day

A Tribute to All Dad's on Father's Day

That Luther Vandross song always makes me cry, "Dance with My Father" if you've never heard it, please get it today, it's also a beautiful song. My Dad left when I was four altho' I did see him once a year on my birthday. There wasn't much of a relationship there and sadly my son, Jason's Dad died when he was two so Father's Day is a difficult day for me as I'm sure it is for many others. My BFF, Sherry sent me a Father's Day card which made me think of all the single Mom's out there who are both parents to their children. In honor of all the Dad's and the ones who take on fatherly roles, I honor you on your day.

Are You A Wandering Generality or a Meaningful Specific?

I know, I know, I've missed you too. Crazy travel schedule, mea culpa!

Earned designations, CPA, MD, CMC, PhD...CSP Certified Speaking Professional. Do they define us? I didn't think so, till one of my clients decided on their own volition, that it wasn't necessary to print CSP after my name in the program...and I was not a "happy camper".

After all, I earned it, I worked hard for it, I'm proud of it. It wasn't bestowed by some politically gainful committee or my friends, it was awarded because of my efforts as all those other ones are as well. So honor thy father and mother and honor those of us who have worked for those little tags after our name. 'Nuff said!!!
