I have decided to start a segment called "Suzie Says..." Suzie is my beautiful mom. And she has come up with some good advice over the years... along with quite a bit of silliness!!
"A person should remember their childhood as being magical."
And I can say mine truly was!!
I never had to worry with the difficulty of life. My parents knew that most of my life would be spent worrying about bills and cleaning pottys so for the brief time (and how brief it was!!) I was with them we would have fun! They made the decision that my childhood would be magical. Many of us think that it will just happen... but it won't, it takes some thought on our part. We need to make an intentional effort for our kids. Give your children memories of their tooth fairy leaving a "fairy dust" trail from the windowsill to their pillow, of Santa's jingle bells ringing from the roof or of making dinner for a neighbor in need.
