Well, as I sit and ponder life I can't help but think of good times and fun that's been had.
Not unlike my father, I have saved little things here and there that have special meaning or bring back memories of good times. And...not unlike my mother, I have also purged my fare share of things along the way! (It really depends on the mood I'm in when I'm cleaning I suppose!)
I found a tiny little mug that says I "heart" chicago on it. Matthew bought this for our little Carter when he was still in my belly and Matthew was gone on a mission trip.
The cappuccino/espresso machine that we received as a wedding gift. It hasn't made a cappuccino in years, but it used to be the only little luxury we had for our stay-at-home dates...because that was..all we could afford! Now we slip out for Starbucks when we can, but I still hate to part with it...
Everything that happens in life, good and bad, make up the pieces that are...us! Although some things are fun too look back at, others can be painful, but they all ultimately make up our very existence.
Here's to looking back, and then looking ahead.
Thanks for stopping by.
