My Sentiments... Exactly

A new season brings the possibility of new memories. With every leaf that falls we are a step closer to Winter. This time of year brings on a bit of nostalgia for me. I think about my dad all the time- but even more so this time of year when we lost him. I get sentimental and yearn to find things that remind me of him. I also look for things that bring me comfort too. Items that my mom gave me, that my husband gave me and that tug at my heart strings when I look at them. Call it mental therapy, call it healing, but it's a necessary process for me every so often.

It's important to me to keep little trinkets that remind me of a happy time - things I can reflect on when I am having a bad day or feel like reminiscing. A great trip, a wonderful memory, a beautiful person. I have collections of fabulous times. It's nice to reflect back once in a while and remember how wonderful life truly is...

Kicks that bring me back to my college days
A Hello Kitty charm from my Mom
These are cute too:
A rubber ducky from our last trip
My Dad's watches
Reminisce often friends....
