Making Memories

Somewhere along the line this phrase of “making memories” was used by a planning committee member and tonight was used again in addressing the crowd at a party event. Watching people gather to celebrate was interesting. I felt like it was Throwback Thursday. I glanced around the packed room. Up on stage was an interpreter who graduated months before me. He is now a lawyer by day and a musician by night. On the dance floor were mentors who have helped shaped my career. People who had once lived in my city were back home for the week. Hugs lasted forever. It all brought a smile to my face.

I have so many memories of joy because of the career I have chosen. I have great respect for so many people who are here this week. They are amazing humans with hearts of gold. I have been busy thus far but I have snatched moments for new memories with these people, ones filled with laughter and inspiration. How blessed am I that memories are a glistening cloud of wonder and awe?

What memories have been made in your graced history? Take a moment to review your life–perhaps a specific element such as your career or your family life. Give thanks for all that has been given.



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
