Appa! Tell me....

Years ago, if I came across any difficult word I would ask my father " Appa- what does it mean?" He would say" Why don't you look up the dictionary? "
I would think why doesn't he just tell me- it would be so easy for him to do so and would have made my life that much simpler.

Appa, I cannot look for answers to my questions in the dictionary any more. ( except while reading some blogs maybe)

But thanks for teaching me that answers are not meant to be found easily. One has to make some effort and may even find some new meanings in the process.

as they say.. teach a man to fish rather than give a man a fish.
your dad was right - be happy he instilled that good habit in you

Kudos on finally starting your own blog. its something I have been meaning to do for ages...and have been putting off for the same reasons as you. But good stuff. I wonder how this super-woman finds time for a job, a hubby, a baby, running a home and now even writing her own blog??
You go girl!!!!
