For her second writing Prompt, Ebar asks;
What lessons do you appreciate learning from your parents?
After my mother passed away when I was around 6, my father was the one who brought me up, along with my siblings.
He was a very gentle and thoughtful man. Very kind to everyone around him, and specially kind to his family. He was a dutiful son, a caring brother, and a wonderful father. He was strict but never harsh. All these character traits were transferred into his children, not by verbalization but by setting a good example.
He taught me my life values. Taught me to have confidence in myself and to be proud of my achievements. He trusted me and my decisions so I learned to trust myself. The biggest gift he gave me was my value system. My faith and my moral values are my biggest assets in life and this is my inheritance that my father left me. He died 18 years ago but his values live in his children.
I think this is a wonderful way to live after dying.
