I recently read a the following tweet on Twitter:
Have you ever had a memory that sneaks out your eye and rolls down your cheek
Isn’t that so true even of happy memories never mind the sad ones!
Even as I read that tweet the first time, I felt myself smiling and some pleasant memories coming back into my mind – some of them brought a tear to my eye as some of those memories involved my Dad and life as it used to be with him – as many of you will know my Dad suffers from dementia so life with him is so different now.
It also got me thinking about some friendships which for one reason or another have fallen by the wayside, but at the time had a huge impact on my life for the good.
Just because a memory results in a wee tear sneaking out and down your cheek, doesn’t make it wrong to remember. We just need to be wary of relying too much on our memories, as life is about living today and trying to make a better tomorrow.
