This weekend we celebrate and give thanks for fathers and father-like figures in our lives. Over the week, I will spend some time reflecting on the many gifts that my Dad gave me: my love of the great outdoors and the fine art of hitting a golf ball; the joy of smelling a good red; the delight in whiling away a lunchtime barbeque. I also give thanks for the gift of spirituality that both he and Mum gave me and my siblings. He loved helping others and was an integral member of community groups. He was also the first person to help during a disaster, always happy to lend a hand. He also loved sitting in quiet contemplation reading a book or discussing world politics with us. Like many of you, I am so grateful for the guidance and wisdom my father has shared with me. He has helped shape me into a strong, independent woman, who grew up with the belief that she could be anything.
