The Sure Cure For Worry Slaying Your Giants Pastor Abusers Book

Found Under Fathers

Bill Cosby on Fathers

Some years back Bill Cosby wrote a book simply entitled Fatherhood.  He writes:

Now that my father is a grandfather, he just can't wait to give money to my kids. But when I was his kid and I asked him for fifty cents, he would tell me the story of his life. How he got up at 4 AM when he was 7 years old and walked 23 miles to milk ninety cows. All for 5 cents a month. The result was that I never got my 50 cents.

 
But now he tells my children every time he comes into the house:
Well, let's see how much money old Granddad has got for his wonderful kids." And the minute they take money out of his hands I call them over to me and I snatch it away from them. Because that is MY money.
