I find that memories are flashing through my mind today. Thoughts of years gone by, thoughts of days gone by. Time keeps going on, whether you are ready for it or not. It stops and waits for no one.
Exactly where does time go? It goes into the caverns of your mind. It goes into the memories you relive.
What will I leave behind when I am gone? Will your memories of me be sad or will they be graced with happiness?
Life will go on. The sun will still shine. The moon will still glow. The ebbs will keep flowing.
Have I left an imprint on your life? Did I teach you a song? Did I take you to playgrounds to dance in the fields? Did I motivate you to reach out for your dreams? Did I encourage you to be all that you can be? Did you take a step in the right direction because of me?
Today, I took a moment to reflect on times past. I looked at some old photos; I laughed and I cried.
Life is a journey, an exclusive excursion that will not be identical in any two travelers. Each must travel their road alone. Yes, they will have companions along the route; some will stay longer, some will fade quickly and some will even come and go several times.
Live today. Laugh today. Enjoy the smile in a loved ones face. Treasure the twinkle in a dear friends’ eye. Lighten the load for someone in need. Make memories.
