NOTE: My dad would have been 86 years old today. Instead, he’s ageless in glory with his Savior. I wrote about him in leaderbird’s inaugural post one year ago today, you can read it HERE. His life and legacy live on inside of me, my family and countless others. My dad was leaderbird.
Whether leaving a conversation, a room or this life, Roger Curtis Stromme left a fragrance of value and hope. You never wondered if he thought you were the most important person in the room. And, he always smelled good, literally and figuratively. In business, in family life or in the community, he passed the smell test. Every time. Honesty has a sweet aroma, insincerity and selfish ambition reek.
How about you? Are you a sweet fragrance to those in your life? Leaders who make a difference are known for putting people ahead of profit, serving ahead of status, and grace instead of grudges.
You will leave a conversation. You will leave a room. You will leave this earth. Your gift to those who remain, is to be missed greatly.
Life flies by…make 2014 your best smelling year ever. (137 words)
Happy Birthday, dad. Love, Brent
