Dear Sons: Don't forget

Dear Sons:

(Letter #20)

As you grow up, some things will stand out more than others. There are so many days in a year, I know not that many will make it into your mental bank. I just hope you'll pick out some of these good times and keep them with you.

Us baking together.

Going to pick berries together.

Saturday nights in front of the TV watching Dracula movies.

Going on vacations together.

Hanging out in the back yard together.

Going to the drive-in movies.

Going to Cubs games.

Snuggling at bedtime.

There are lots of mundane days where nothing particularly exciting happens. Not every day is Christmas or Halloween. But there are lots of special moments in those routine days. Don't forget them.
