    All children should be able to look up to their fathers and they seek guidance from them and count on them to be there.

    #1 – My Favorite :)

    A GOOD father can teach his child more than any teachers. Love compassion, life experience. This is what daddy’s were made for :)

    I completely remember my parents being just like this… Sadly, I know my son will think the same… who knew?! HAHA!

    I love this quote! Everytime I see my son with his daddy his eyes light up with joy that I know there is for sure a twinkling in his heart.

    I love #2!!!

  • Brenda said:

    I like all the quotes but felt #2 really resonated with me the most. I feel so blessed and loved when my son calls for his “mama” – I can only hope that his “papa” gets to experience the same feeling.

    Thanks for your write-up. One other thing is that if you are marketing your property yourself, one of the concerns you need to be cognizant of upfront is when to deal with home inspection reports. As a FSBO retailer, the key about successfully switching your property plus saving money on real estate agent commission rates is information. The more you are aware of, the softer your home sales effort will probably be. One area in which this is particularly crucial is information about home inspections.
