Mother’s Day is time to think about the legacy that you leave behind based upon the way you live today. An open letter to my family to share with each of you:
For my son Brent, and grandsons, George and John, wonderful daughter –in-law Brooke,
To me, Broadway is a pop-up story book! The characters bring the story to life. You will meet remarkable people on your journey, as I have on mine. I have tried to:
1. Show up, just be there for each of you with total attention for as many hours a day that I could.
2. Nurture and encourage each of you to grow to your potential.
3. Be flexible to hear you, yet be heard.
4. Ask rather than accuse.
5. Hold and hug when I am with you and send magic kisses from afar.
6. Inspire you to see the world with an open mind.
7. Live by example of ethics and integrity, showing the true value rather than the price of things.
8. Demonstrate that it’s not how many toys you acquire; it’s how you share the toys that you have with those that don’t have them.
9. Inspire each of you to really do your best effort for yourself, your family, your community and your country and I will be proud of you!
10. Cherish every morning’s sun rise and evening’s sun set knowing they mark the remaining days of our lives on earth.
