"They do not love, that do not show their love." William Shakespeare

As a parent it is difficult to make time, in a busy schedule, for family. Charles Francis Adams, Children Reading the grandson of the second president of United States was a successful lawyer, a member of U.S. House of Representatives, and ambassador to Britain. Amidst his responsibilities, he had little time to spare. He did, however, keep a diary. One day he wrote, "Went fishing with my son today - a day wasted!" On that same date, Charles's son, Brooks Adams, had printed in his own diary, "Went fishing with my father today - the most wonderful day of my life". What lifetime memories are you creating in the lives of your children?

"The greatest work you will ever do, will be within the walls of your own home"
Harold B. Lee
