We all have stories to tell about a father and some of these stories are funny, some are of encouragement and some are filled with sorrow. One such story happened many years ago but I always remember it as if it had happened yesterday. M y father was a music teacher who traveled to farm homes in smaller communities to teach his students. He left home around one p.m. each afternoon to start teaching and would return around ten or eleven o’clock long after everyone, except my mother, was asleep.
Mother was the ruler of the home. She was a strict taskmaster, demanding that we all obey the rules without any excuse. When we didn’t, there were always immediate consequences.
However, one day I made a big mistake and my mother warned me that my father would deal with me. I was relieved because I knew I would be in bed long before he got home. At night, I went to bed early just in case my dad came home. I figured it this way: I would fall asleep when he got home and therefore he wouldn’t wake me up to punish me, and by the time morning rolled around, he would forget the whole thing. But I was fallacious. I got up thinking all was well but instead, dad called me in to the playroom. He told me how disappointed he was in me. He then told me that I would lose the privilege of playing with any of my toys for the next two days.
I still remember that incident vividly. The reason why I remember it so well is that it taught me a good lesson. And, that lesson is that consequences will befall you no matter how much you don’t want them, or how much you hope that they will just go away like a bad dream.
