I had a different post scheduled for today but my thoughts just won’t let me write what I was going to, so here we are.
This week a friend of a friends child died. I can’t say that I know this couple very well or at all. Somehow I have been told every last detail of the death of their very young child and I can not get their family out of my mind.
I don’t tell you this to bring you all down, but simply to offer gratitude.
Every single day in my life three special things will happen. We all wake up, Matt will have left me fresh coffee downstairs, and Sunny and I will read books in our reading chair where I’ll steal sniffs of her hair and feed her her bottle and sing silly songs. Everyday that I have with that child is my absolute favorite. So today I offer thanks for my healthy little girl and a prayer of hope for the parents who lost their child. I don’t know them but I think of them constantly and pray for them always and wish that my thoughts were enough to bring them through this very very difficult and challenging time.
My business is preserving memories. I make videos and edit projects everyday and I rarely know what happens to the people I create projects for. We tend to video tape the events of our lives, happy events like weddings, family reunions, and the birthdays. I’m reminding you today to video tape the mundane, the un-important, the forgettable, if for no other reason that it will never be forgotten.
I hope this weekend finds you full with love and everyday memories that you will never ever forget.
