What Inheritance Will You Pass On?

“Every one of us receives and passes on an inheritance. The inheritance may not be an accumulation of earthly possessions or acquired riches, but whether we realize it or not, our choices, words, actions, and values will impact someone and form the heritage we hand down.”

My neice, Julie, and her daughter Gabi, share a common interest in raising money to support the Best Buddies Program helping people with intellectual disabilities. For the past two years they have been riding together--mother and daughter-- in the Hyannis Best Buddies Challenge. This year Gabi, alone, has raised $1450 in pledges for the 50 mile race. If you'd like to support Gabi or want to know morego to  Gabi's Best Buddies page.

I ride because I have seen firsthand the power of this program at my school. It has created bonds that I treasure and memories that will surely last beyond my high school years.

As my husband and I review portfolios and begin our  retired lifestyle, we are hard put to match the value of the inheritance Julie has passed to Gabi and Gabi will  pass to another young person through her example of selfless service.
