Pass it On

kisses

 

Kisses hold special memories for me. Not the chocolate kind, or the sloppy, wet kind, but the kind you blow and catch on the wind.

I’ve been showing my granddaughter how to blow kisses for several months now and I was rewarded recently with her pressing her hand to her mouth to blow one back. It was something I shared with my own grandmother as a child.  After visits that ended too quickly, I remember sitting in the backseat of our car, head poked out the window and blowing one…or twenty kisses to my beloved grandma as my father backed the car out of the driveway.

Little things wrapped in love will be remembered and cherished long after a loved on is gone. What special memory can you pass on to or begin sharing with your children or grandchildren?

“I thank my God upon every remembrance of you…” Philippians 1:3

    This has me thinking, Julie. I guess I remember my Grandma when I smell cinnamon because of the cinnamon rolls she made. Or when someone mentions they store things in their oven because she stored sweet goodies in hers. Maybe it’s sensory memories I have the most. My mom always said funny things to our kids….flutterby instead of butterfly…that sort of thing. This post really has me thinking! ;)

    It is interesting what triggers our memories and even emotions, isn’t it?
