The definition of legacy is (n) legacy ((law) a gift of personal property by will. Legacy has come to mean something passed along to our children, a bequest typically financial but not always. Here's another form of legacy we ought to consider. As baby boomers move into retirement age, we're looking for something to leave behind, to create something that will outlive us. This thing called Caffection informs the way we interact with people we love, and who we'd like to emulate us. Kids are smarter than we are; if they see us treating our spouses with respect, admiration, caffection, they'll want that in their own lives. It's a legacy anyone can be proud of.
