#44 - When your parents die, let yourself grieve, then carry on their legacy.
(from my 50 things i learned on the way to 50)

In tribute to my dead dad, I went out this year on December 24th on a special mission. It was to carry on the Helem family tradition of watching the last minute Christmas shoppers scramble at the mall. It was all quite amusing until a harried, half blind 100 year old girl in an off road vehicle smashed in to the front end of my car in the parking lot, while I was sitting in it.

And you know what i did? I simply drove away.

That was four days ago and I still can't check the front end of my car for damage...

Oh my goodness, girl!

Well, it can't be too bad, or someone would have noticed...

Sounds like you've not only carried on the tradition but added your own spin to it. :)
