There are so many reasons to reminisce during the holiday season. It can put a lot of things in perspective.
Many things that have happened to us in the past are important, and should be preserved in our mind.
The unimportant terrible things like your first auto accident or the time you got a speeding ticket~ well, these should stay with you so that you don’t let that happen again.
Bad things and Good People
You can ponder on deciding why bad things happen to good people your entire life, and never come up with an answer. I would like to think that everything happens for a reason, but at times I am not sure about that.
I Love writing things down. It has helped me to preserve some of the memories that are stored somewhere deep down inside of me.
Changing your story
You can start writing too. It helps to clear up many things.
You can even change some of your bad memories into more pleasant ones.
I have been telling stories for many years.
I have many stories that I have told my children and grandkids about.
They love to hear stories this time of year so that they can also begin to store some in their minds too. Something that they can pass on to the next generation.
Just Sitting on my papa’s lap
A really good story for me is sitting on my papa’s lap when I was around 4 years old.
It is the only memory I have of him. I remember how he looked. A dark mustache and a bald head, but a soft, nice, calm voice.
I don’t know why I remember this particular scene but I was very comfortable on his lap, and he was pealing a banana for me. That is all I remember.
In the Spirit of the Holidays
Stay in the spirit of the holidays all year. Create wonderful stories for your children. Learn how to love. Learn how to put a smile on someone’s face by just telling a funny story.
