The memories we share with our love on can serve us well, especially in times of loss. Sometimes he memory of them is so clear to us we smile and we share the sounds, the colors and he words that were spoken. It can make for hours of sharing and talking about those we love. All memories may not be good but sometimes reflecting on them may bring a laugh because we can see the humor in what happen but at that time it was not so humorous to us but now we have laughter in what was so serious. The memory, a comfortor we were Created with. Gen.1:26-31. (...........everything he had made, and look! It was very good. ........)
