Since it poured all night last night, all day yesterday, and all the night before, only with little breaks in between quick enough to take the dogs out, I watched movies or played scrabble all day. No fireworks outside here last night!
In one movie I watched, something was said that made me pause it, "rewind" it (old school is showing) and play it again. I wrote it down and want to share that with you today. It is very profound and thought provoking.
"Trying to forget someone you loved is like trying to remember someone you never knew."
When we lose someone in the natural way, through death, most times we want to remember them and it is impossible to ever forget them. But then, like me, when you lose them to divorce, there is never any closure. You WANT to forget them, but you can't because they were such a major part of your life. And if you have children and grandchildren, they continue to be a major part, like it or not.
Today, I am praying that you have only wonderful memories of those you love and have loved. We never know when it is our last day, or theirs. So go out today and create new wonderful memories today with those you love. Send your loved ones a card, call them, hug them, tell them you love them.
