Some of us are dealing with our beloved family members today, who are losing their memories. It is one of the hardest things we have to deal with. When Curtis' mind went bad, I made the comment to several people, there were things worse than death. Some of them unfortunately, have come to understand that statement.
The strangest thing about memories is you never know what will bring one back. It may be a song, a picture, sometimes with me a smell. I was raised on gospel music, so an old gospel song my Mom and Dad's quartet used to sing, will reduce me to tears. Memories can make you smile, cry like I do sometimes, or make you laugh out loud. So many people have filled me with wonderful memories. I wonder what memories I am leaving? Lets all strive to make beautiful memories every day, especially with those we love so much. I hope each of my grands have special memories.
So think today about the MEMORIES you are making. Make good ones, they don't have to be earth shaking, just a simple doing something "pecial"
You might even make someone a memory jar like my family did me. I have enjoyed every note and reliving every memory.
