What do you hope your kids will say about you when they’re adults?
(Don’t be a weenie – if you don’t have kids, pretend you did for the purpose of writing this post. Imagination costs nothing.)
I have no kids, so my imagination I must use. I’ll just use my experience growing up, and what my parents did or did not do.
If I had kids, I would want them to say they lived a life of joy. That there was tragedy, and bad times, but life no matter how bad contained some passion. There were always laughs and good times. There was always good food, and lots of love. Holidays were a time of forgetting about bad things that were happening, and letting everything go for the holidays. The problems did not go away, but put aside to appreciate every holiday, with laughter, family, good friends, and lots of love from everyone. I would want my kids to remember that there were many days of love and pleasure, no matter how bad life became. I want them to say that because of my love, life, no matter how difficult, can continue with humor and happiness.
