Passing on a Legacy (Corona Beach Part 2)

5 Sep

What we gained from our elders

What we leave to our children

Embracing his legacy

 
As we completed our trip in Corona Beach and made a last stop to eat, I looked at my husband’s watery eyes as he simply uttered the words, “I miss him so much.” He was referring to his grandfather, “Tata”. All I could do was hug him and say, “You did it, just like you said you always wanted to…you brought your own kids to Corona Beach. You are carrying on his legacy.”

I went nuts trying to figure out how we were going to instill all the qualities that make up good character. How would we do this before he hit eighteen? Continue reading

A special note

I recently picked up a new book that I started reading, Parenting with Love and Logic : Teaching Children Responsibility by Foster Cline, M.D. and Jim Fay. I bought it used on Amazon.com.  It seems this book has been around the block a few times by the “for sale” sticker on the back, the letter written inside the front cover by a loved one and the fact that it’s missing the paper cover. I guess that’s why I lucked out and got it for $0.43.

It seems this book has made its rounds and made it home to me. I couldn’t help but read the inside handwritten letter that I can only imagine was written by the father of the book recipient’s baby. I know this was written as a personal note, but it became public domain when they sold it. It is a lovely note and I wanted to share it with you.
