LIVING FOR LEZLIE

Memories....

A personal question is probably when someone asks what are the memories of your loved ones like.

One that doesn't have to be answered of course but, makes people grieving a child wonder if all memories are about the same.


Of course, memories of those we lost are associated with high emotion. Good and bad. Of course, during grieving we do grapple with a few emotional memories at our darkest times.


But, I am not hear to ask about that, I just wonder if you remember things like I do. Like that time we went to a haunted house and she was shoeless and we heard something like a scream and even though she was farther away from the car than me and Bethany, she beat us.


Memories that make me laugh and of course tear up because, I won't get to make anymore. Then I just try and think of something else funny that would make me smile, like that one time at the Motley Crue concert - I will save that for another time.


Sometimes, I cannot remember what happened last week but I guarantee I can remember things that happened with Lezlie and Zach 10 years ago.


I make a big deal of people making memories. If you work and you work a whole lot, you can't make memories. Yea yea, we got to work but we don't have to work so much that when we try to do something, oh wait - work. No, thats not living. Food is good but memories are too.


When I think back on things that happened or we did, I can smile because we made memories. I still make memories and I promise you this, even if she isn't here with me - she is included in 100% of what I do someway.


So, instead of living to work or working all the time, make a memory. You'll thank me for this.


Isaiah 40:29 "he gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless."

The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart;  the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil.  Those who walk uprightly enter into peace, they find rest as they lie in death.

Isaiah 57:1-2
