It is fall and the temperatures are beginning to decline and stay there. Soon, the snow will cover the ground, making hot chocolate taste even better. With a warm, crackling fire to cozy up to, memories lay soft upon one’s heart.
Memories do not necessarily require the above setting. They return to us in any setting, especially one that is familiar to the memory. Sometimes, we are ready for the memories, sometimes we are not.
The loss of a loved one is an unwelcome, but real part of life. The loss cannot be changed by trying to suppress memories. The grieving process is dependent upon memories for the adjustments that we need to make in order to go on. The memories we have are all we have left. Without them, we would have nothing.
“May your memories linger always”
