I will think of my Dad today and honor his attribute of tenacity. I admire that he looked forward to challenges and had a positive attitude about them. He greeted them with confidence and willingness to understand, keep at it, solve it. He role modeled for me the mindset of not giving up because the challenge was too tough. He didn't take to the Easy-chair and let the energy die. He didn't let the problem surmount his will to fight. He kept on thinking, processing, attempting, learning, pursuing. He never quit. He had a silent, calm devotion to winning.
