Last Saturday Wendy and I joined Catherine (I think I am the only one who still calls her Catherine), to help our Mom work through the process of preparing to move to the Meighen Retirement Residence. It was sure fun to be together and to work to accomplish this task – not that we got it all done!
What we did find was lots of great photos that we had to stop and review and remember days gone by! Isn’t it interesting how some photos take you back to the moment they were taken and you can see, hear, even smell the setting?
I think you can have two reactions to these kinds of events. You can look back with fondness and regret that so much time has passed, perhaps wonder if you’ve wasted time or missed opportunities, perhaps even recounted errors in judgement. Or you can look back with fondness and thank God for the people we’ve known and loved, be thankful for the days lived well and acknowledge lessons learned and blessings received.
Even the things which we wish were different can lead us to thankfulness that we had the opportunity to learn.
At any rate – a couple of photos from last Saturday.
