God gave us memories so we could have roses in December.
This is the title of a book written by Marilyn Willett Heavilin.
I will not be quoting this book,but I do think the title fits with this post.
The book does say that memories are like roses in winter.
Memories can bring a glow of sunlight on even the darkest day.
As we remember our loved ones who are no longer with us and the happy times we had,we feel a certain sadness,yes,but also a joy that we were able to make these memories.
I think it is important to realize that we are making memories each day.
Let's make sure that many of them are happy memories.
As I look back on my life,I can truly say that I have a heart full of happy memories.
I can honestly say that,even though there are a few very sad and hard memories,the happy ones outweigh the bad by far.
As you go through each day,make happy memories,either for yourself or for others who will one day remember you. In this way you are preparing to enjoy roses even in December.
