For years, I've wanted to visit Dane and Candy during Christmas, so I could experience one of their famous horse-drawn sleigh rides. They always did it up right. Dane outfitted the team with sleigh bells while Candy made sure you were bundled up in warm quilts. When you returned to their old farmhouse, you were greeted with homemade cookies and hot cocoa.
Now that Dane is gone, so is my dream. It wasn't just about the horse-drawn sleigh ride, but the whole experience with Dane and Candy. It was about making more memories for our kids so they could look back and say, "Remember the time at Uncle Dane and Aunt Candy's when...."
Remember, when you look back on your life, it's not the things you did that you most regret, it's the things you didn't do.
