Remember Well

“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.

“To be wronged is nothing unless you continue to remember it.” - Confucius

“To be wronged is nothing unless you continue to remember it.” – Confucius

  1. So very true. What we concentrate on will determine how we feel about your lives. Choose to concentrate on the good.

  2. It takes two people to hurt you, the person trying to hurt you and your acceptance of the pain.
    I like your light. Thanks for sharing.
    Keep loving,
    Rose

  5. This was fantastic! Since in Maine where I live there is nothing but snow the last few days. To remember the scent of the rose now is a very big gift. Thank you for sharing this positive thought today.
