I've learned that sometimes you just have to slow down and enjoy a sunset, a walk on the beach, or even the laughter of your children/grandchildren.
When all is said and done, what memories are left? I remember memories with my family. Especially one fishing trip with just me and my dad. We went on a deep sea fishing tour and we both sat on the bow of the boat as we passed under the golden gate bridge.
Even though my father provided for his family, he still took time off to enjoy life with us. Those are the things I hold dear. I've learned from he and my mother about celebrating life with faith, family and friends.
So if I'm not around all the social sites as often as some, you know that I'm probably playing pirates or reading with a grandchild or two. Such are the things dreams are made of. ; )
