Life gives us brief moments with another...but sometimes in those brief moments we get memories that last a life time... (Author unknown)
Memories are the treasures that we keep locked deep within the storehouse of our souls, to keep our hearts warm when we are lonely (Becky Aligada)
I remember the laughs, words, touches we have shared.
Today has been a day turned upside down, but we just flow along with the current and enjoy the new journey. I said goodbye to Stussy at five this morning as Tom took her to the airport, I said hello to Ariél as she arrived home from work this morning at five. Christmas presents were exchanged much later, with Lily demolishing her three new chew toys within half an hour. She descended excitedly on the pile of wrapping paper and boxes. Then she discovered bubble wrap! Which pops when you bite it: she was beside herself with delight.
New memories: never replace the old; they just layer up the thick quilt of Life.
Thank you for memories old and new.
