Wow!! Those age ranges and the thoughts we've had about our dads is so true!! I enjoy talking with my dad now...but as a young person I sure didn't like him much. And I sure didn't spend much time with him much less talking with him. Oh how I missed out on so much!! Now I just would like for him to get saved so we can rejoice and talk about the Lord. Without being able to talk about the Lord our conversations are awkward and short.
