M is for Memory

We all have the occasional lapses in memory and think nothing of it.  There is an expectation that the older you get its only a matter of time where you will start forgetting.  But this is not the case there are remarkable men and women in their 70's and 80's and above whose memory is still as sharp as a button, (I think that is the saying!).

It is the memory of the moments in our lives that we will pass on to the next generation, those things that captured our hearts, and made us laugh.  We share experiences that made us think, had an impact and brought about change in our lives and we admire those individuals who made an impact on communities, countries, and who were not afraid to stand up for what they believed in.

It is in dealing with my mother who has dementia, that I see how important capturing the memories of my life will be for my son, his children and children to come.  That they will be able to look at photographs of me and say to each other I remember when (Mum, Nana Manda, Gran, Great gran) used to make us laugh and do those wonderful paintings of us (and lots of other wonderful things I hope to be remembered for!)  

I celebrate my life today knowing that I can continue to create and share memories with my son as he grows up.  What would you like to be remembered for?
