Leave a Legacy…..Now….With a Time Capsule

Leave a Legacy…..Now….With a Time Capsule

Leave a legacy quote

I am convinced that the greatest legacy we can leave our children are happy memories: those precious moments so much like pebbles on the beach that are plucked from the white sand and placed in tiny boxes that lay undisturbed on tall shelves until one day they spill out and time repeats itself, with joy and sweet sadness, in the child now an adult.
~ Og Mandino

“Rewind that commercial. I have got to see that again.” This is what my husband said last night as we watched a moving Olympics commercial. You know, I wish it was that easy to do with our lives and those special milestone moments that made us happy – Rewind and see that again.

If it is just as important to us to rewind good commercials, tv show clips, or movie lines, then it also needs to be that much more important to rewind and leave a legacy with our lives, (for our children), and what we do now.

Leave a Legacy

I love hearing old stories from my grandparents and parents, as they grew up. I have a hard time imagining this, but my grandmother told me that her parents had to trade chickens for eggs (instead of using cash) in the past, when she grew up. These stories leave lasting impressions on you, as I looked down at the cash in my hand. Suddenly a dollar bill, has more meaning.

What are you doing to leave a legacy? Leave your teachable moment and milestone moment stories in a Baby time capsule for your child to pass on years later. Do not wait until it is too late. A time capsule is faster than a scrapbook to do. That is why our company created it. We all are limited on time. However, it is honoring to pass on that pocket watch from grandpa, or those inspiring stories, tips, and advice from older couples in the family to help you through your struggles in your own marriage. You can fill out the “Message to the Future” letters as friends and family members to help pass on these legacy lessons.
