Tonight I stood in the passageway between what used to be my Nan’s (now my mums) house and her neighbours. I thought about all the times I had played with a ball against the wall. And the times my Nan’s neighbour had come out and told me to stop banging on her wall.
It’s funny how memories catch us unawares.
Both my Nan and her neighbour now gone.
I sometimes have moments like this. Things like a smell, a memorable building, or song can bring on these memories.
Sometimes we fear those moments but they are often because of good memories of a certain person. We have to acknowledge them, acknowledge that life moves on.
Memories, Even the ones that leak out of our eyes means we have lived.
We have to remember that nothing is forever but those memories are there because we have loved someone or something!
Remember when you are making memories with your children they last a lifetime. Make them good ones.
