My father taught me honor and how to garden. He taught me how to fish. 

My husband of course taught me how to truly love but he has taught me how to professionally paint, and do other things that relate to house construction and furniture building. 

My husband DESPERATELY tries to teach me mechanics but I refuse. I don't want to know. He thinks its a skill I might need one day but I tell him NO, I will call someone else to do it for me! I don't want to learn it!!!!!

Well, my father taught me how to use my head and think things through - plan ahead, weigh the options .  He taught me that I was special. 

My ex-h taught me how to use hand tools and what they are.  He taught me to work hard - because I always had to work for both of us when it came to maintaining a home and raising our children..  He taught me that as a wife I really was not worth any preference or consideration.. Oops - I think I am off topic...Sorry!

My dad, he taught me all about cars. How to change tires, oil, a motor, rebuild the engine. He also taught me not to take any crap off anyone.

My grandfather taught me to love, to garden, to be kind and generous.

My sons have taught me to laugh.
