  • Recalls pleasant memories of the departed one’s life
  • Makes you pause and reflect on your own life – seriously
  • Proves you have a lot to be grateful for – like being alive

Pick up any book your child is reading.

Browse through it.

Watch for the lessons.

Take them to heart.

Because, at heart, we are all still children.
