Days pass...
Seasons change...
Months meld into years,
And we stand looking back at our lives--
Childhood memories,
Exciting moments,
And turning points.
In january we think of new beginnings;
In february of valentines,
First dates,
And first kisses.
Does ever a day pass without thoughts of our wonderful lives?
Surely summer evokes backseat memories of seemingly unending trips.
And don't november and december bring to mind family traditions and celebrations-
Held tightly through the years?
Like ivy on the garden trellis,
Our lives are inescapably entwined with the seasons and months of the year.
Childhood memories,
Lighthearted incidents,
Cherished traditions,
And the dreams and spiritual adventures encountered in a lifetime of living.
Will take you on a journey through the times and seasons of your life.
It makes a tangible family record to pass on as a gift to a son or daughter,
A loving memoir of written words that are windows yo a mother's and father's heart.
No matter what your age,
Memory and reminiscence open a richer,
Fuller understanding of who you are as a family.
Let this memory be a starting point--
A door into discussing and sharing the unique qualities of your life.
May reflections from a mother's and father's heart draw you closer to each other as-
You share the experiences of a lifetime.
And always cherish your loving memories!!!
