Some of the best memories of our lives are those of celebrations with partners and those with our children. Time passes so quickly and before we know it, relationships have passed or we have transitioned through many phases and stayed together. Our children grow up so quickly and though we want to hold on to them forever, it's not the way things are meant to be. Our children are meant to grow up and lead their own lives and we're happy for them and we want great things for them. It's all part of the natural transition of life, from childhood to adulthood, from young to old. The good news is that we have our glorious memories. Our loved ones stay in our hearts every minute of every day.
How can we best represent our memories? They are with us always but there are times when it helps to have something to hold in our hands with words or photos that bring wonderful moments to the present, if only for a moment. The photos of our weddings, when everything was new and our lives were still ahead of us and the photos of the birth of our children. We held them in our arms and promised to be everything they ever needed us to be. We look at those photos and we remember.
