When you think of your memories, the good ones that really matter and give you warm fuzzy feelings, do they involve fancy things and a lot of money? I can’t think of one of my best memories that had anything to do with material things or wealth. They included experiences and feelings and most of all, people I loved. Here’s another great memory from a loyal listener who really knows what it means to be rich…
I grew up in a middle class family. My father was a clerk in a bank, and he used to go to his job on a bicycle. I was 6 then. My friends had their own bikes to ride in the evenings and I used to just watch them.
But when my father came home from work, he used to carry me with him on his bicycle and we had a ‘big ride.’ When that would happen all the kids would watch and stare from their windows because their businessmen fathers were too busy to spend time with them. When my dad would do that I would feel like the richest kid in the world!
Today, my two daughters have so many toys, and bicycles and scooters to ride, but my ride with my father on his bicycle was a great world tour to me. Zainab
It’s true, today our children have a lot more gadgets and cool toys to play with, but I really think, even still, the best memories are made when you’re spending quality time with the ones you love. The best memories occur when you’re making the most of what you’ve been given, like Zainab, whose dad gave him a very special gift just by being present.
