I remember the first time we took our girls to New York City. We still laugh about how, of all the fun experiences that cost so much money, what they most loved were the pigeons that landed all around them on the city sidewalk. Birds! The experience cost nothing.
Recently when traveling, my daughter and I took so much delight in a little stray cat that followed us around on the beach. All around us stood luxurious homes and experiences we could have that would cost us a fortune. But what caught our attention was a silly little cat.
I like to remember the simplicity of joyful experiences we treasure as a family. Our favorite memories are often the ones that cost us nothing.
