Each way is different, each way is unique, just as those we remember are.
For me, the sight hyacinths blooming at Christmas time instantly reminds me of one very special person as he beamed with pride at growing these wonderful flowers and filling the house with their beautiful scent.
Some gorgeous ideas have been shared with us; photographs that instantly bring us back to how we were feeling in a special moment, spending time to lovingly recreate childhood recipes that remind of a beloved mother, or a special song that transports us back to all the sounds and smells of a family Sunday morning.
Each way is different, each way is unique, just as those we remember are. There is no “right” way or “wrong” way. Life moves so quickly and it is easy to become distracted by all the elements of day-to-day life but it is important to take the time to pause and smile at a treasured memory. We owe that to ourselves and our loved ones, and we need to allow ourselves the permission to remember them in our own way.
