“God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December.”- James M. Barrie
Even in our most demanding times, there are still moments of joy weaved through, providing hope and light. How we view the past provides the lense of our today and tomorrow. If we look deeper and longer, we can see the light beaming through the shadows of our memory, of our today.
Nothing is pure joy or pure pain. Life is a mix of it all and we can choose what we amplify. Never let the shadows overtake the light. Remember well, so that the roses in winter are as fragrant as they are in summer. It’s the difference between sight and vision.
