Terry is consistent, fun, kind, and a great example of living with compassion, enthusiasm and acceptance.
I am blessed to call him 'Dad.' At least behind his back, anyway. I don't dare call him 'Dad' to his face. :) (It's a decision we came together.)
I sent out an email update of my time in Switzerland early this week, and this was his reply:
In recovery, I've learned that God shows up in other people. It is through the wisdom of others, God can show up and speak to me. When someone as special and influential as my Terry-dad is as insightful as he is, it is an example of how God is ridiculously powerful in the way God shows up in my life.
I glisten with gratitude.
