In Your Words: The Making of a Memory
I am very fond of memories.
I’m the type of person who saves cards — birthday cards, Mother’s Day cards, thank you cards, “just because” cards. The handwritten notes inside recall to mind the person who gave me the card — the part I treasure most.
I also save photographs, both digital and traditional. Even less-than-perfect blurry ones, because they capture a particularly precious moment in time I want to remember.
And then there are those moments tucked deep in my heart, captured only by my mind’s eye. Forget-me-not instances that I recall when I’m alone … or when I hear the lyrics of a certain song … or when a particular day comes along each year …
Significance — that’s what’s bound up in the memories we keep. Some of the moments I remember best are tear-stained, waiting-for-joy-to-come in-the-morning experiences. Others echo with the faint sound of laughter. But each and every unforgettable memory is woven through with significance that has influenced the making of me.
In Your Words: Are you a memory keeper? A memory maker? I’d be honored if you share a special memory with us here today.
