MEMORIES

MEMORIES… joyous, happy, hurtful and sad.

So many different memories!

This holiday season has been full of happy stuff.  We have made some new happy memories as a family.  I love our time together.  My husband is always able to take the same time off that our children and I do from school. It truly is a blessing.

This year is the first year without any of my close family relatives from my side.  My dad died 17 years ago and my mom 7.  This summer, my brother also passed.  Death.  I know it’s a part of life.  As everyone knows, even though we all know death comes, it’s still not something that we deal with perfectly.  Our heart hurts.  So, this holiday season has also been full of some memories that haven’t been exactly happy.

The amount of photographs that one acquires after cleaning out a house that has been in your family for over 40 years is enormous!  Seriously.  I think I’ve looked at every picture which are all now boxed up and in the attic.  That attic sure holds a huge amount of memories.

Memories are what we make them.  I choose to focus on the good of it all.  The memories that bring a tear to your eye can strengthen you.  Those things that make us a bit sad can remind us that JOY is coming!

This December has been full of a lot of different memories.  I will look to them all as blessings!

Memories.
