After my dad retired from the Air Force, he started teaching at the community college – mostly sciences. Being a meteorologist led to his love of space. He wanted to teach a course in the subject, but found a lack of resources. So, he compiled his research and wrote a college textbook. He met a publisher at one of the space symposiums that he attended who was eager to print the book. It turned out to be the best selling book for the company. My dad ended up writing 4 editions of the book to keep it up to date. He received a royalty check in the mail and he was surprised that they were still selling. There have been over 25,000 of them sold and he has made a good amount of money on the royalties. As we talked about it today, he was proud of this accomplishment, and so was I and my mom.
I Found God today recognizing one of my dad’s great accomplishments.
