Keep


 
In the afternoon I was writing a letter to my oldest son, I was describing him about the plans we did for his party. And while I was typing the words on my computer about that moment, I felt like I was living it again. 

For me, it's hard to remember everything. That's why I decided to challenge my self to write monthly letters to my kids. This is one my ways to keep my memories. 

What marvelous is to keep memories, isn't it? 

I love taking pictures every time I have the opportunity, and this is my other way for keeping memories.

I'm not a good photographer but I'm learning and I hope one day I can take really good pictures.

Also, there is an other way I used to practice to keep memories, I'm talking about my gratitude journal. It helps me to keep me alive all day long, because I walk with open eyes all day long, and I'm trying to feel every moment my life has. This, give me the opportunity to at the end of my day, can bow my head in pray and give thanks to God for all those, big and small, blessings I received from Him, through all  the day.

  1. Very beautiful. What wonderful ways to keep those memories alive. I'm trying to keep a gratitude journal as well, but mine is online at mghollis.wordpress.com (I'm not very good at keeping it up to date though). Thank you for your words.

    Hugs,

  2. What a wonderful idea!

    Those letters will grow in preciousness as time passes...and may I make a suggestion?

    Write some of them longhand, and mail the only copy.

    You'll keep the memory through writing it, and send a unique part of yourself, in the rarely-used "art of the heart", handwriting.

    And I am here from FMF.
