Memories Not Made

You are busy. I know. It’s the story of most of our lives.  Working to provide for our families. Trying to make ends meet and acquiring all of that stuff we think is a necessity. Let’s pause a moment and reflect on what we are giving up in the process: the precious memories we fail to create with our children.

How Not To Get Kicked Out Of A Casino
