Today I just want to remind you that life is short and you need to get busy making memories. I could stop there, but that would be the shortest blog post ever! You know better, right?
We are a family of two – my husband and myself. Of course our dogchild, Casey counts too. We find so many fun things to do every day. We have enjoyed our retirement very much and it seems like there is a new adventure just waiting around the corner.
We have been to many states and seen so many things. Making memories is a priority in our house. We do stuff and capture the memory with a camera – and I scrapbook it!
I’m not a parent, but if I was a parent or a grandparent, you know what I’d do? I would keep a notebook full of cute things my kids or grandkids said or did! It sounds like a lot of work, but I really believe that children are so sweet and so innocent. Art Linkletter had the right idea when he made the show “Kids say the darndest things”. It’s so true! Keeping those “darn” things they say and do close to your heart by writing them down will help you through the more difficult days ahead – the tween and teen years! There will come a time when those sweet little children will not be so sweet and innocent.
When you are planning activities for your family, keep your children’s personalities in mind. When I got dragged to the skating rink with my cousins I was not a happy camper at all. In fact, I used to take a book and sit at the side of the rink with all the “parents”, read and have adult conversations with the adults while my cousins were doing the limbo and acting crazy.
Just take some time today to love and appreciate your family. Family is forever, but time passes quickly. ❤
