Memories…

Okay so I’m pretty sure the majority of you reading this have Facebook right and for those of you that do not, I’m sure you’ll still relate to this post. Speaking of Facebook, hopefully you LIKE US ON FACEBOOK!

For those that have Facebook, you know that Facebook frequently looks back on things you’ve posted/shared and shows it to you again as a memory. That is exactly what happened to me this morning and the reason for this post.

Today Facebook reminded me of my Fall decorations by showing me a picture of how I use to decorate my house, both inside & out, pre-#paralysis.

Memories can make us both smile 😊 with happiness, as well as, become sad 😞 over loss. For me, I was caught somewhere in the middle today when I saw these pictures again.

I use to not only take pride in the appearance of my home but I use to actually enjoy decorating, especially seasonal and holiday decorating! While seeing this pictures again brought back those happy days, which I’m grateful for, unfortunately it also made me sad, sad because it was yet again another slap of reality, reminding me what I can’t do; can’t do from this #wheelchair.

I know I could ask my honey to get out the Fall decorations and he would gladly put them out ‘n about but, for me, the fun of it is gone. I am glad that he knows in his heart that I would if I could and he’ll always have the memories of what I use to do.

As always, I wish you days filled with WONDER – take a minute to WONDER what it is that made you smile 😊 today!
