Post by Deborah Cruz If you found out that this was your last day on earth, what would you want to leave with your children? What life lessons should they know? What strengths of character would you instill? Who could you trust to fulfill your parenting plans in your absence? Who could help mother your child if you died?
I just read the story of the Council of Dads. It’s a story about a man, Bruce Feiler, who is diagnosed with cancer, and finds himself faced with the question, “Who will be the father to my daughters if I die?” The very act of becoming a parent makes us painfully aware that if we die, we leave behind the best part of us.
