Never be Ordinary – Wisdom from My Father


This is a warm and wonderful tribute from a son to his father. But it is more than that; it is a book of wisdom. When the author was growing up, he did not pay close attention to things his father, an ordinary man, said to him. Yet, years later, as he looked back on his life, he realized how much his father’s words really did influence his life. Here, Father Cusick presents some of the key things his father taught him. One of them is to keep your eyes and mind wide open “because by doing so you may experience the presence of a guardian angel…who just might remind you of your dad.”
