These are my babies-
These have been the moments given-
These are the pearls of my life string-
I will wear them one day complete-
When I fall at your feet-
And say, thank you.
Do you remember that awful episode on Hero's when Mr. Bennett threatens to take away the guys memories of his dead family member? I was struck by that since my dad has died and that truly would be the most awful thing. You know, we may go through thick and thin, good and bad, but those memories are the treasures of our hearts. I cannot imagine loosing a single moment treasured from 2008. Blogging is helping me remember them more along the way. You know you think you will remember all the funny things they say and then one day you say "oh, you do you remember when she use to say ...oh, what was it!?" and you wish you could remember.
I gave my mom a treasure box made by the girls with empty cards in it. It was to write down memories as they came to her one by one either of dad, or of things going on now. I think I will start one for myself to have a box of treasured moments.
Treasure time, it is truly God's gift. Also, ponder what to do with it when it's in your hand. I shall do the same.
What moments will come this year?
One thing is absolute, I shall not pass this way again, and that is sobering enough.
