My little nephew is truly a show stopper!

He has a way with saying the most precious and yet hilarious comments.

His father passed away a few years ago when he was an infant.

Sometimes I see glimpses of his father through him.

It is a unique experience to observe a young child whose dad is no longer with us, as he tries to make sense of that in his little mind.

One day this month we were granted the opportunity of having him in our home for the day. We spent the day laughing, playing games, reading books, wrestling, eating snacks and all those things you do. Then it was time for him to go home.  I loaded him in the car and we began to drive. I said “Eli, are you happy?” He said “Yup!” I responded “Great, because you are such a good boy and you deserve to be so happy!”

Then there was a moment’s pause and out of the blue he stopped the show.

He said, “I like Mommies but Daddies are my favoritist.”

I smiled, chuckled, and wiped away a few tears.

What a statement!

What a lesson!

I have sense been more cognitive of the impact of daddies in peoples lives. Think of the goodness that is multiplied by good daddies.  Who looks up to you as one of their daddies?

Who do you look up to?

If your daddy is your favoritist, maybe today you could share this with him!

Guy has heard just about every "Guy joke", like "Hey, it's that one Guy." or "You must be the only Guy here." Now he can add a new joke "You are that blogger Guy." Guy is an Idaho boy. Born in Pocatello Idaho, he grew up working on a farm with his grandfather just outside of the "big city". While working on the farm Guy learned lessons of work, integrity, faith, discipline and how to drive a tractor while singing a few country songs. Guy graduated from Idaho State University in sociology with a minor in political science and knew that he wanted to work in a service field. Later, receiving a Master's Degree from the University of Utah in education, Guy has been passionate about Education. Guy also developed a great love for an in depth study of the scriptures, especially scriptures that open understanding of our Savior Jesus Christ. Guy counts it a great blessing to be able to help youth and adults discover truths in the scriptures that bring happiness and hope. Guys greatest blessing is his sweet wife and their two children that teach him great lessons of discipleship. Guy hopes to be known as one who lives a simple life of multiplying goodness.
