Our memories, hopefully one of the few things we'll always have. They make every move, no matter how far, or home square footage, they'll never see the discard pile.......if only it was that easy. We always take the good for granted. Why do the great memories seem to blur and fade, while the ones you yearn to forget linger? I aspire to make plenty of good memories for my own little ones, I know I mention this often, but only because I feel of it's importance. Childhood is short, too soon you face the stresses of adult life. Why not do what I can to put in plenty of good, before life brings on it's own set of demands. I've found while they're young and naive it's fairly simple to take an ordinary event and turn it into something special, something that leaves an impression. Another memory stored, and with any luck a happy one.
Aren't we lucky, a few of us got the opportunity to make a fun memory. A memory full of green, shamrocks, leprechauns, rainbows, and a pot-o-gold. Seems Lucky the Leprechaun paid our little preschool class a visit. He made for a fun few hours of shared stories, activities and crafts. And after our green inspired lunch, he led us to our very own pot-o-gold.
Lucky the Leprechaun, what a great little guy, he doesn't have to do much to make a day special. His annual clover shaped update letter accompanied with a few sweet golden pieces is all we really need to remember our fun St. Patrick's Day traditions. So I'll let others find the annoyances for the need to make every holiday a big deal.... their missing the big picture.... it's all about big fun and big memories.... the green is optional.
