Feeling emotional today as I just finished a phone conversation with my dad. A Greek immigrant from Corinth- Tasso now resides in Kansas City- I live in Chicago. As I am now a grown woman, I still feel the need to hear his voice, and when I do, I’m reminded of his continual sage and sincere advice he is famous for and always imparted; childhood through adulthood.
My dad and me on the right.
MY DAD’S STRENGTHS:
Honesty. Whatever I’m doing, good or otherwise, he will shed reality and warnings on the situation. Never judging only guiding. There really isn’t anything I couldn’t tell MY dad that would turn him against me.
Work ethic: No one can outwork him, a consummate entrepreneur – I get that from him, he always has a new idea and implements it. Work never scared my dad, he gravitates to it, but so does his energy to live life.
Focus: He’s got uncanny focus. When Tasso puts his mind to something, consider it a reality. Although my mother has much to do with this…more on that next time, he just does not get bogged down with the chatter- he cuts right through it.
Time: He always has time for me, never would he push me away. We like talking to each other, most of the time!
Love: My dad loves me and I really love him.
Kefi: Webster’s dictionary should have my dad’s picture next to the word KEFI! He lives life with passion, energy and gusto. I hope I will have his Kefi all the days of my life.
