FMF Prompt: Collect
Thinking about the word collect and what comes to mind first is collecting memories. I'm trying to collect memories. In the last 2 1/2 years I've lost my oldest brother, my mom and my dad, along with several aunts and uncles. Then with me having cancer last year and my younger sister having a stroke that has left her in an assisted living facility, it makes me want to collect lots of memories with the family and friends still here on earth. The memories of my brother and parents help make it bearable that they are gone (just barely), plus knowing I will see them again helps alot. We're being intentional to spend more time with my husband's parents and with other family, because no one knows just how much time we have left.
So while collecting things was something I did a lot in the past, now I am much more interested in collecting memories and new friends and new experiences. I want to live life to the fullest each day.
What do you think of when you see the word collect?
Come join in with Friday Foto Friends. Just post some pictures from your week and tell us about them. You can go here to link up and then see what some other bloggers week looked like.
Here are 3 of my favorites from this week that have not already shown up on my blog (at least I don't think they have.) Of course, you know there always has to be a picture or two of my grandson.
|That little Colton can flat move!|
|Here he is looking at me like "Come on Gigi, I want some more pudding."|
|We saw this plane swooping all over the place. Turned out he's a crop-duster. There was a helicopter doing it too, but unfortunately I didn't get a photo of that.|
