Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall inherit the earth. Daddy was a peacemaker and where ever he went he brought peace, and when he left…he left a wide berth in his wake.
Recently I read a piece that stated there are Four types of people in your life. The first type do Not like you. And they NEVER will. They number about 25 percent. Through age and discernment I’m good with that.
Ok…so I kept reading…hopeful about the remaining 75 percent.
Of those remaining, the article also said that 25 percent ‘can’ and ‘will’ like you…given the right set of circumstances. Well, at least that was promising to a people pleaser like myself.
Next the article mentioned about 25 percent DO like you…but, there’s always a but! But, given the wrong set of circumstances…they won’t like you. Dang! Just when I thought I was building a team.
And the remaining 25 percent? They are loyal. They WILL like you. Come what may.
Daddy knew this. And he was able to keep this in perspective. He was ok with the haters and the nay sayers. But his acceptance did not come without years of trial and error. And he remained a peacemaker no matter the circumstance.
We miss you Dad. We all miss you.
Your VERY Best friend in the whole wide world 🌎☮️♥️🚋
