How To Impress

To my son Tommy,

People spend so much time and effort in their lives trying to impress other people.  They attempt to impress with their wealth and their intellect and their athletic prowess and so many other aspects of life.  You have no control over what actually impresses people, but if you ever end up with a choice, impress them with your generosity.  I am not talking about generosity where you give millions because you have millions.  I am talking about true generosity when you give of yourself.  A gift of pure love where your gift is not encompassed by a dollar amount but comes from pure intention without any promise of personal gain or return.

Sincerely with love from your dad,
