Dad’s Birthday, the Power of Positive Thinking & Some Perspectives Offered

Today was my late father’s birthday and I feel down. He’d be 84 today. Dad loved books and especially ones like Peale’s The Power of Positive Thinking. He and I disagreed on much, including this type of book. But in honor of his birthday, I reread this book and am going to write a few words on it. However, true to form, just because I read it in honor and memory of my father doesn’t mean I’m going to treat this with kid’s gloves.
