Happy Memories Of You Do I Keep

November 9, 2020

Continued from A Rustic Split Rail Fence

Let go the past…

And anyway,

What does it matter she didn’t like your picture?

Those were happy memories to you.

Keep them.


The smile of innocence may fade—as does the rose—however,

The lingering memories are still just as sweet

To the heart…and

The heart remembers (with great joy!) the happy smile of the child and

Delights in retelling the old story!

Today begins a new chapter.

What new story will you tell your heart today?

What new happy memories will you make for your heart to one day remind you of

This day–

Standing at the kitchen sink

Sun shining on the window sill

Cleaning carrots for dinner–


With love from the cottage in the woods,

NZain 💓

Thank you for reading and sharing this moment together.
