I just got a letter in the mail saying that the insurance policy that my grandfather purchased for me needed to have the contact information updated. What?
It turns out that he purchased the policy when I was 4 years old. My grandparents and great grandparents bought me savings bonds and tried to make sure that I would have a good start in life. They loved me.
I’m not saying this to say that if you don’t do those things, you don’t love your kids. I’m saying it to say that … they loved me and showed it by doing things that would make my life easier.
I am doing the same for my kids by purchasing them stock and contributing to their college savings plans. I hope my kids feel loved when they realize that we have been plotting on giving them a good life since before they were born.
