Where Do You Keep Your Memories?
As a month rolls away and the 1st of another is upon us, I wondered if I had kept enough memories in the past weeks. Sure I snapped some photo's. But did I truly capture all the moments?
You can never capture all memories in a photo, but they are in out hearts. For those un-photoed memories we jot them down in a notebook of some sort.
For the ones that we were so blessed to snap a picture of, they are stored in an online album,
or we must scroll to find them.
Do we still print those moments to add to the family album ?
Isn't it more fulfilling to turn the pages and touch the photos?
I think so. Not everyone is a scrapbooker.
So, adding pretty paper or stickers may not make it to all albums. And That's OK.
But we should still take the time to print a few and collect them in one space.
A tangible space.
I love going over a family members house to look through all the old photo's.
The ones with the writing and scratches. The sepia colored ones.
Even the ones that are so old you have to run a get the tape to keep it together.
I want my children to have that experience.
The phone only holds so much storage. Let's make a conscious decision to print a photo or two each month and add it to that old, almost falling apart album.
So I ask you again; "Where do you keep your memories?"
