We recently stumbled upon an article from a few years back entitled "What Will My Grandchild Remember?" by Paula Span that pretty well sums up our raison d'etre: to help people ensure that their children, grandchildren, and future generations will know who they were and understand the values they held dear.
"When we think about legacy, what we leave behind as grandparents, probably values top the list: We hope we will have transmitted lessons about kindness, justice, strength and confidence, the boundless nature of love."
This quote also caught our attention: "I think a lot about children and memory. The average age for an American to become a grandparent is 50, but it’s not uncommon for it to be much higher. Many of us reproduce at later ages and recognize that we may not see our beloveds become adults."
The thought that we may not live to see our children become parents themselves means that if there are certain family stories, values, or messages that you intended to pass down, writing them down is the surest bet for passing them on, and the best way to achieve peace of mind knowing that you won't miss out on that chance to leave your legacy.
