Things Never Forgotten …

1 Comment

Everyone remembers significant events of their lives … it is often asked …

Where were you when ….?

The Towers fell?

Elvis died?

Etc. etc. etc.

But are those significant events in one’s life … well, yeah, 9*11 is, but Elvis ???

Anyway … There are things, events in our lives that we will never forget. These are mine.

{ I will never forget …}

I will never forget your smile, my love. The joy in your laugh, while I can no longer hear it, I know you laugh in heaven, and I can sense it in the heart of my spirit and the memory of that beautiful sound is always with me.

Darling I miss you. Only memories remain. No laughter under this roof. And only quiet where you sat. Love you always, forever and eternity until the ... Day I see your smile again. <3

Darling I miss you.
Only memories remain.
No laughter under this roof.
And only quiet where you sat.
Love you always, forever and eternity until the …
Day I see your smile again. ❤

I will never forget how deeply we loved and how much our friendship sustained that love, throughout the time we had. I will not forget how strong our foundation in God was in our relationship either.

I will never forget the way you said “I love you.” every single day, whether the sun was shining or tears were flowing, you said the words that are forever in my heart.

I will never forget that you called me Beautiful or Doll, as if they were my name; and after a time, they became how I saw myself through your eyes. I will forever be beautiful because of your devotion.

I will never forget the fire flies behind the barn, the only romance I ever experienced and will ever need. Their dance performance, just for us … each June at dusk. Such a joy to experience with you.

I will never forget that we agreed that we were it for one another, that this marriage was eternal and there would never be another, for either of us.

And since I do not ever see a love like ours in my future I believe I will keep that agreement.

I will never forget how we did this life together. Honestly, Loyally and always friends, who happened to love and respect one ,always.

You taught me to be beautiful. You taught me to be strong. You allowed me to be me always, never seeking change.

{ I will always remember … To eternity …. }

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.
