Making Memories

Standard

start on January 1st with an empty jar. throughout the year write the good things that happened to you on little pieces of paper. on December 31st, open the jar and read all the amazing things that happened to you that year.

There is no better feeling than truly being aware that a memory is being made.

Summer just naturally lends itself to being the backdrop for many significant memories. Whether it is a great discussion by a fire pit, while roasting marshmallows, or looking up at the stars or an even an impromptu trip to the movies. The opportunities are endless we need only be aware and present!

This week the ingredients for wonderful memories were aligned! We had out of town family in this past week. The weather was absolutely beautiful and laughter was aplenty. No detail went unnoticed. These are the rare gems of days that you just want to tuck away, in a special box, to pull out repeatedly and admire.

When the ingredients for outstanding memories are there it feels, to me, that the senses are also heightened. I heard the sweet sound of laughter coming from my family. I saw joy in the faces of my children; especially when they were bonding with their older cousin. Who knew doing nails could be so much fun! I enjoyed the scents of flowers, fresh cut grass, and a delicious breakfast that was made by my hubby with love. I held the hands of loved ones and embraced them as they arrived as well as when they left. Last but not least I tasted a scrumptious new flavor of ice cream.

While not considered by many to be a bold adventurous week; it was as the great Mary Poppins would state “practically perfect in every way!”

As we enter this month of “transitions” a little further, I will use this week to motivate, strengthen, and encourage my outlook. Great things await and many more memories are on the horizon to be made. Use this time to make a memory to treasure!
