Memories...... Grateful for them and more...

I have a terrible memory, ask me in the morning what we did or talked about the night before, and more often than not I will draw a blank.

However, I do have some great memories........

Memories of when I was a little girl and going to visit my grandparents - we would collect the eggs and feed the chooks;

Remembering going on  a grade 2 excursion and getting to wear a new red dress with tiny little straps on it;

The smell of the paste in the pink pots we used at primary school.....

Then as I get older -

Winning my first ribbon at Pony Club;

My first "real" kiss (at an Iona College school dance, if you must know) - how cliched!

The last day of school.

Meeting the love of my life.

Getting married (I remember vividly walking up the back steps to the Church, being handed a glass of water and my dad looking at me intently saying "you don't have to do this if you don't want to".)
 I did it - Best. Decision. Ever.

Finding out I was pregnant.

Holding my babies for the first time.

Arriving in London, travelling in Italy etc.

Great memories.  I think having written this I have only started to tap into the wonderful memories I have.

I am hoping to create beautiful memories for my children, just not sure how I am doing with that.

  1. I also have a failing memory! I think after 4 kids, my baby brain just stayed haha. Memories are so important and such wonderful things to have. You've inspired me to make more memories with my kids so that they can think back on them one day. I do love the words your Dad chose to use on your wedding day!! haha


I love reading your comments.... thanks!
