On Wednesday 18th I posted a short mid-week post about celebrating the 47th anniversary of my wedding to David. (October 17th). On the morning of that day I had discovered the picture above in an old book. It evoked such memories, ie of my childhood, my Mum and Dad and even my own children I used it in my post to simply express gratitude for the good memories of the past and to say how important I believed it was for each one of us to sow beauty and gather lovely memories to store in our minds for future ‘recall’.
The Picture above is precious as the moment when I burst through the trees and saw the ocean in front of me was both a shock…….I thought I had further to walk. It had quite an impact. It was like a GASP. ‘Oh Wow! I was probably not very old but the picture took me back to the smell of the sea and the trees and I felt the sunshine.
On the blog I quoted someone called DEMOPHILUS who wrote……….
The greatest treasures are the memories which you carry in your heart.
I published this blog and went on with my day and week.
Today It was G O N E………… It was not visible in usual place. If you saw it please let me know. It’s quite amusing really that the blog called MEMORIES disappeared and for four days has been no more than a memory……….somewhere out there in cyber space. Here I go again. Greetings to ALL. Hope your week ahead has some great impacting moments. Now once again I’ll Publish.
Blessings to all.
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
