#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...
