Unwrap Some Memories

 

I just had a birthday, and although many of you know me, I won’t disclose my age today. I have this mindset that each birth day should truly be celebrated and embraced with the best attitude possible because there will be purpose played out in our lives when we are looking for it. This decade that I’m currently walking through has some twists and turns to it for sure!

Just when you feel really great, the body does something to make you feel older. When you jump in with both feet on a new project, the mind has you reflect on so many memories. So in this week of Christmas, I’m remembering to just soak up everything and try not to take even the little things for granted.

“Let’s Unwrap Some Memories”, I heard this phrase on the radio the other day and it really resonated with me.  I’m not going to go deep into this, but thought it worthy of documenting…I hope it has you pause to reflect as well.

I take time to unwrap the memories of loved ones that aren’t with us anymore; I pause to share laughter and tears with my loved ones that still are in arms reach so we can continue to cement those precious memories into our lives.

I grab my camera often to capture moments unwrapping as my children have school parties, sports victories, quiet respite snuggles in with family…

I look for opportunities to create meaningful wrapping throughout each day in big and little activities…from sprinkle-flying gingerbread traditions and singing carols at the top of our lungs in the car, to reading books side-by-side in calm and quiet.

Unwrap Laughter and Joy and Connection  while enjoying the gifts past and present with those that you hold dear. Merry Christmas! I hope you have much to unwrap in gratitude this year!!
