“Give me 5 seconds and I will tell you everything I know!” my Dad often randomly proclaimed with a grin. Surprised, everyone would stop and stare. A brief moment of silence would elapse, a giggle would escape, and then life would continue.
In all the years my Dad proclaimed this, he never once elaborated. He moved through life confident seeming to know all and in complete control of his destiny. One day he suffered a stroke. It was as if God mocked “So, you think you know it all?” He learned only one knows all and sadly it wasn’t him.
