The Measure of a Man

"The measure of a man is how well he provides for his children."

-Sidney Poitier

I often think about this quote. This was the last book I gave my grandfather before he died. I believe I also gave a copy to my husband, but I don't know what ever became of it. I read most of the book sitting by my grandpa's bed as he was dying, during the times when he did not feel like talking.

My family isn't a money family. But one thing the men in my family always did was take care of their own.
