Memories Matter...

I had to get up early this morning (well, early for me) so I stopped and got myself a treat on the way to work. A venti white chocolate mocha at Starbucks. Mmmmm...

I don't usually pay too much attention to the cups, but today I did, and I am glad because it made me think, and it made me smile. I will definitely pay more attention to my Starbucks cups from now on! Here is what it said...

The Way I See It #292

The way we get to live forever is
through memories stored in the
hearts and souls of those whose
lives we touch. That's our soul
print. It's our comfort, our
emotional nourishment and at the end
of the day and the end of a life.
How wonderful that they are called
up at will and savored randomly.
It seems to me we should spend our
lives in a conscious state of
creating these meaningful moments
that live on. Memories matter.

Karrie, that is the same cup I received on the day of my cousin's funeral. It was actually comforting to read as I sat at the reception, looked down and read it for the first time. It too made me smile. :) *Hugs*
