Last month our book club read a book titled..."Before I Go to Sleep" by S. J. Watson. As I am reading I am always looking for quotes that touch an emotional cord in me. The story line of the book is centered around a women who has lost her memory, regains bits and pieces of it throughout her day, falls asleep at night and loses it all again. Sounds awful. The quote I underlined and that touched me the most was this "A ripple across the surface of the lake of memory". There have been major changes in my life in the last few years, not been easy. I do my best to give it to God. I don't allow myself to think much about my past because I tend to gravitate to the pain. After reading this quote I decided to let myself remember......Let myself remember the good....
I love him.
Mom and I used to have good times. We would read books play Rummy Cube, watch movies. Mom had a great sense of humor and would come out with the most crazy things and make me laugh.
"Thank you God for our memories. Help us learn from our experiences. Help us to remember and find peace and joy in the gift of the good memories. Please take our memories, use them, both good and bad, to help us to become more like you. Give us peace in our journey knowing that you are beside us."
Happy Monday Everyone!
Allow yourself to think back and enjoy a memory. Hope it makes you smile:-)
