It is funny the things we remember. A friend posted on facebook this morning the silly things their child was saying and mentioned how as our children grow we will miss such things. I replied with the fact that we need to write such things down to never forget them. It is funny which things they will remember. When our oldest got married after getting all settled into her own home you know what she wanted to do? Come to our house for supper and afterward watch the Waltons. Even though most of our children give hubby a hard time because he is the one who want to watch the Waltons and they have all seen them a thousand times . But that meant down home goodness to her. It is a fond memory for her. as they grow one of our jobs as parents is to create fond memories. Things that will bring a smile to our children’s faces years after they are grown. Stories that will be preceded by, “remember when”.
We are having another of or turkey suppers tonight. I mention often that we buy several turkeys for the freezer when they go on sale before Thanksgiving. Another fond memory coming up . So, what speaks of down home goodness to you?
