While a father was washing his car one Saturday morning, he looked over and saw his four-year-old son picking up rocks and rubbing them on his trousers.
He asked, “What are you doing?”
Innocently, his son replied, “I want to be dusty like you, dad.”
You see, this young father worked at a feed processing plant. Every day when he came home, his son would comment about how dusty he was.
Years later when he recounted the story, that father said “I realized that if a son would look up to his father for being dusty, he would look up to dad for anything.”
