Spring Break is more than halfway over and many of you are squeezing out the last bits of vacations, day trips, and family fun before life regains it’s normal routine of school and work. These are special times when memories are made and the fabric of family is embroidered with new detail.
This week we would love to hear YOUR special moments! They could be from 30 years ago or just yesterday… Let’s encourage each other, give ideas, and share laughter as we reflect on those moments that make up our family legacies!
Here’s one of mine…
I was about 11 and my mom took me and our yellow lab, Sunny, to a local lake for a picnic. We talked over snacks and I loved having her all to myself! At one point we were throwing a stick in the lake for Sunny to fetch and I started racing her to the water’s edge. I joked that I should race her into the water -and my mom said, “Go for it!” I sloshed through the water in my clothes and we laughed hysterically as tried in vain to beat Sunny to the stick. That day my mom taught me the joy of spontaneity, simple fun, and the comforting realization that “That’s what washing machines are for…” It’s a memory we will both treasure forever!
