For Valentine’s Day, my husband got me the most AWESOME gift on the planet; memories! He got me one of those very cool picture frames that continually display a slideshow of your photos. This morning was the first chance that I had to actually set it up, and in doing so, I began looking at all of the photos that I have on my laptop, and IPad.
What I discovered was a treasure trove of memories; photos of all of the places we have gone, the things that we have done, and most importantly, photos of friends and family. It was such an awesome walk down memory lane that I still cannot get the smile off of my face!
Of course there are photos of sad times, like when my father passed away; and scary times, like was I was first diagnosed with leukemia too; but looking back at the past allows me to see how great the journey has been; how much I have accomplished and how far I have come.
My life thus far has been full. I must remember that in order to appreciate the great days, we must have some bad ones, and despite the fact that some days may be bad, we are still making memories. Planning for the future is not a bad thing, but looking back and appreciating everything you have experienced just may bring a smile to your face, too!
Thanks Honey, for such a great gift!
