If we can’t have ‘them’ at least we can do our best to keep their memories alive. That’s what we did yesterday. That’s what we do here many days.
We remember the smallest things don’t we? I mean my Mom’s great tuna sandwiches had nothing to do with shaping me for the future, but I remember them as vividly as any lesson in life that she taught me.
I guess in some strange way, remembering them, not only keeps the ‘good old days’ alive for us, but in a way, we keep their guidance and advice alive too. Do you ever find yourself in a situation where you think back and that little voice inside your head says, “What would Mom do?” “What would (fill-in the blank) do?”
Happens to me all the time.
It’s a memory that keeps on giving.
