Dear Life Lessons Community,
First, let me simply say that Karree and I have been overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and support we’ve received since my Dad transitioned beyond this realm. I’m not going to say that this experience hasn’t been without many tears and emotions but I’ve also received some tender mercies this past week, not the least of which are the messages I’ve received from so many of you. Some of the experiences I’ve had are simply too sacred to share. I know you understand.
In 2011, I, along with several of my siblings, wanted to get on video some thoughts and lessons from my parents. So, we sat down and asked them a series of questions about parenting, life and so forth. I realize that much of the content they shared will be of no relevance to you and your family. However, in the spirit of thanksgiving, I wanted to offer these 3 or 4 thirty minute segments of my parents as they shared their 80 plus years of wisdom with their posterity. Some of what they discuss is about their faith. It’s what was most important in their lives so it’s of no surprise that they shared their feelings of faith with their family. I’m sensitive to this portion as we all have different belief systems and that I don’t mean to offend, nor would my parents want to offend anyone. This was recorded for the benefit of our family. In the world today, I hope we can all learn from each other and take nuggets of wisdom from different sources. It’s my hope that if you choose to watch one or more of these segments, you will find a nugget or two to bless your own family.
With love and gratitude,
Dallin and Karree
