To save a moment in time Make a Memory. Precious memories to hold on to, they may never happen again.
Making memories is so important. Either by passing on a family tradition or creating a new tradition yourself. Also pictures are important to bookmark an event. We now have an advantage to capture memories with cell phone pictures. It is much easier to create an ALBUM of your life and family or friends. Take the time to capture the Memory.
Another thing is creating memories. You never know when the circle will be broken by a family member. It could be by marriage, moving, or just life happening. Time is deceiving, making memories only takes a moment. We get so busy we forget to make a memory.
It is so important to remind each other of the goood memories. Also try not to say something that you will regret, once its out there you cannot take it back. When this happens I chose to stay the course and hope they return safely. They will always be family no matter what.
The next generation needs our Memories to know their heritage. Everyone is so disconnected these days children have no memories to fall back on. Have You noticed because of this disconnect and no memories, people just make this one an Aunt and the other one an Uncle…… I would not trade one of my family members, step family members, half family members, family by relationships and family because they are close to my heart. Without all these humans I would not be who I am. Family can cut like a knife with disagreements but if both people work at it, agreement will come. Yes it takes effort to stay on the same page, but it is so worth it.
Memories can be good and bad. The beauty of keeping memories alive is to reflect and grow. Dreams of a perfect family, well, whoever is in my life, or crossed my path and given me advice, that is who I choose to call Family. Dreams do come True if you stay open, if you support me or even correct me because you care, your family.
