My friend Charlie once told me of the importance of parents creating good memories for their kids. We carry our memories like luggage with us for a lifetime. They don't have to be a big deal, just special times. It might be a fishing trip, playing catch in the back yard or baking that first pie. The key is that they are positive experiences. It doesn't matter if the pie comes out perfect but that the experience is warm and fun. I plan on giving all my grand kids as many good memories as I can. They take a little time and patience but they will have lifelong positive effects.
I love them all.
