Welcome to The Writer’s Post Thursday Blog Hop # 83.
This week’s host is Michelle Liew of Muses from the Deep
The chosen theme:
♦ MEMORIES ♦
My husband turns 63 years old tomorrow. Typing that honestly jars me.
Shocking that so 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. It will be our 40th 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?
What are some of YOUR favourite memories? Do you reminisce often?
Looking forward to your comments.

2) REFLECT ON MEMORIES OR COMING TO TERMS WITH THE PAST”
