A Lesson in Fatherhood
When I think back almost 17 years when my wife Pamela and I were blessed with our first daughter, Hannah Elizabeth, it seems like only yesterday. We were newly married and I had just started my career in Hotels after being out of college for a few years and life was exciting.
At the time, I was, for all purposes, very immature and honestly, didn’t know anything about being a father, let alone a being a husband. I took a lot of things for granted.
Then came Kaylee Batel, our second daughter. In their younger years I thought I had all the time in the world to spend with them and chose to do other things with friends and spending my time and money on everything else other than my family. Yes, it was selfish and that is who I was at that time.
