♫♫ Take one fresh and tender kiss / Add one stolen night of bliss / One girl, one boy
Some grief, some joy / Memories are made of this ♫♫
My husband turns 65 years old this month.
Typing that honestly jars me. Shocking how much time has passed!
When we met, he was a few months shy of 21 and I was 16. Instant mutual dislike turned into friendship, then love. (Read more about that HERE.) It will be our 42nd anniversary in August and that too is shocking, but also amazing and wonderful! Most people said it wouldn’t last. We showed them, didn’t we? 😀
It seems, the older we get, the more we reminisce and savour our memories of times past.
I have two dear friends, whom I’ve known for decades and our conversations often turn to all the good, (and not so good 😉 ), fun we had in our “wild and wonderful” days of yore. This is a positive thing and not the same as “dwelling in the past”, which is largely a negative activity, whereby one is haunted by past mistakes, etc. Isn’t it wonderful to know that when we reach old age and the infirmities thereof, we will always have those memories to make us smile?
So, let’s get out there and make some more, yes?
Memories and music go hand in hand for many of us. I’ve always said that my life has a soundtrack.
In future, The Doglady’s Den will be introducing a new feature:
These will be occasional vignettes, based on memories triggered by specific songs.
