Warning... I'm about to unload a crap ton of pictures on you guys :)
As most of you probably know already (or maybe not), this has been a week full of emotional turmoil, self-revelations, nights of tears and fears, and stepping outside of comfort zones. Some of the things I have went into some detail on in previous posts. The rest I have and will keep to myself for now. This morning, I'm flipping the switch to flash some light in this dreary week.
I wanted to start by posting things that I loved and made me happy, and had a few ideas in mind, which were mostly people. However, as I found the pictures I'd had in mind, I began finding others I loved, which made me keep looking. It kind of went down hill from there. Before I knew it I found gazillion pictures that I wanted to post.
It was then I realized that it wasn't just the people in these photos that brightened my day, but the memories I made with these people. Which made me realize how truly blessed I was.
Some of these pictures range from a few months to a few years back. These specific memories just happen to be caught on film, some random and candid, some posed, but all memories of great times, happy times.
Then I realized how truly blessed I still am.
God has allowed me to reach the point I am now. He's allowed me to still have these people in my life, and to live my life with them. Not every day, week, month or year is good or great. But there is something worth living for even in the darkest of times. Memories have a way of reminding you of that...
Memory Reminder #1...
How much I love this man...
I love how he is silly with me....
That he suffered hours waiting for the Harry Potter
Premier with me (he must love me lol)
That he lets me and my sister decorate him :)
I love him when he is hairy!
And I even loved him after he elbowed me in the head at
Because he kissed it all better
And he loves me... even when I look
like a drowned rat!
Memory Reminder #2...
Never Take Your Parents for Granted.
They end up becoming your best friends.
Not just Mommies....
But Daddies too!
Memory Reminder #3...
Don't take life so seriously, because being serious
Act like a big kid....
Even when are an adult.
And face the consequences of getting stuck
in a big ball :)
Goofy faces keep life interesting.
Find a reason to play dress up, whether it is for Halloween...
Because you found some hilariously hideous
stuff in a thrift store
Or because your nieces make you.
And don't forget the wigs... they are fun!
Memory Reminder #4...
Enjoy each moment as it comes,
because you never know....
When you will see someone wear
your pot holder as a hat
When you will see your Memaw
strip to "Yeah" by Usher
*Side note: It was for a friend's bachelorette party,
and she stripped to her pajamas LOL.
When you will see someone get eaten
If you will ever be this close to a hot rod again in your lifetime
When you'll see a homemade pool driving down the road
Or when you'll catch those perfect moments
of those kids who steal your heart over and over again
Life can be so short sometimes, and the sad thing is, a lot of times we take life for granted. We take the people in our life for granted. We take smiling and laughing for granted. Always remember that tomorrow isn't guaranteed. You aren't promised a tomorrow with your spouse, parents, siblings, nieces and nephews, grandparents, etc. Life is difficult sometimes, and there are days where it is taking everything you can do to keep from falling apart, but just remember the happy times, the memories you've made, and realize that you are still living and breathing, which means you can make many more happy memories.
Hope you all have a great Thursday! :)
