I’ve always had a box where I’ve stored selected special items from the past – Sarah and Gemma’s first shoes, letters from them when they away from me, memorabilia from special events. I suppose I now look upon this blog as a means of recording recent memories of my thoughts and moments in life.
Since I helped Sarah pack her bags and move into her own house, I now have a spare room which I’ve turned into a memory room. On the walls are pictures of special places, special people and special prints. It has a calm atmosphere with nothing but happiness on the walls.
I imagine you’ve all got a small corner somewhere in your home where you also display things like this – if you haven’t, I’d urge you to dedicate a small (or large) piece of wall somewhere in your home where you can display, however randomly, photos that bring a smile to your face, of special people and special places.
When I walk in my room, the only emotion I feel is one of happiness.
