INSPIRATION FOR TODAY:
One father is more than a hundred school masters. ~ George Herbert
In 1900, fathers prayed their children would learn English. Today, fathers pray their children will speak English.
In 1900, if a father put a roof over his familys head, he was a success. Today, it takes a roof, deck, pool, and 4-car garage. And thats just the vacation home.
In 1900, a father waited for the doctor to tell him when the baby arrived. Today, a father must wear a smock, know how to breathe, and make sure a new tape is in the video camera.
In 1900, fathers passed on clothing to their sons. Today, kids wouldnt touch Dads clothes if they were sliding naked down an icicle.
In 1900, fathers could count on children to join the family business. Today, fathers pray their kids will soon come home from college long enough to teach them how to work the computer and set the VCR.
In 1900, fathers shook their children gently and whispered, Wake up, its time for school. Today, kids shake their fathers violently at 4 a.m., shouting: Wake up, its time for hockey practice!
In 1900, a father gave a pencil box for Christmas, and the child was all smiles. Today, a father spends $800 at Toys R Us, and the kid says, But I wanted an X-box!
In 1900, a father came home from work to find his wife and children at the supper table. Today, a father comes home to a note: Jimmys at baseball, Cindys at gymnastics, Im at gym, Pizza in the fridge.
