Real Wealth | Bob Gerrie

It’s March! I am sooo glad it’s here because last month was a hard month for our entire family.

A little backstory: Shortly after Austin’s February freeze, my dad came down with pneumonia and was hospitalized for two weeks. I am so grateful to report that he’s home from the hospital and getting better every day. He still has the sparkle in his eye. He still tells me he loves me every time he sees me. He still is making everyone laugh. And he still believes with all his heart and soul that “this is the day the Lord has made … I will rejoice and be glad in it.” His faith is inspiring.

So this week, listen to Episode 199 … a re-issued, from-the-archives, dad and daughter conversation that’s filled with all the wisdom and all the tears and all the joy. But the best part might be when Papa signs off with Mimi … so listen to the end. :)

If you haven’t already, meet my dad, Bob Gerrie. He is an inspiration to all who come in contact with him. People often joke about ‘getting Bob-ed’ by his enthusiastic, warm welcome. At the time we recorded this in 2019, it was Father’s Day, and I asked my dad to come on the podcast this particular week, for a Dad/Daughter conversation. We talk about family legacy, about what real wealth means to him! I’m so deeply grateful to have a father like Bob Gerrie.

My father has loved my mother and our family well his whole life. They celebrated their 66th wedding anniversary in December.



PS. We’ve been going through old photos … and this one of my dad and me laughing in his arms just makes me so happy I could cry.
