My dad went to be with Jesus on September 16, 2006 . This year, we took flowers from my mom's garden to throw into the ocean at Sunset Cliffs. It's a great tradition that we also try to do on his birthday. This year's moment included a walk down the secret trail with my boys. It was meaningful to bring them to a place so packed with memories for me. Of course, they only thought it was dusty and fun to tromp through the grass and down the trail. Good enough.
Do those things that are meaningful for you, even if your kids don't understand yet or do understand and don't appreciate the way you think they should.
Add memories to the memories.
By the way, the surfing lesson was hard work but lots of fun and well worth it. I am very glad we went.
