Does your mind ever play the 'Year Ago' game?
You know, where you automatically think about where you were this time the year before?
Different things can trigger this game. Dates, weekends, church meetings, seasons, holidays, Anything that happens annually... which technically is every day of the year I guess.
My mind plays this game constantly. For the longest time, my mind would rewind back to what I was doing the year before, and I would feel sad, uneasy or even mad. For three or four years the memories from the year before were bad memories. I really hated when my mind would make me play this game. I didn't want to think about where I was the year before.
I wanted to forget.
I prayed to forget.
I wanted that time in my life to be stricken from the record, and from my memories.
Thankfully I'm getting to a time in my life that I don't mind it so much. This fall I look forward to the 'Year Ago' game. That was the time things started to change forever. Change for the better, that is. That was the time David started to really play a part in my life. I enjoy thinking back to how we first started talking. The conversations we would have, the funny things he would say to make me laugh. The butterflies... oh the millions of butterflies I'd get in my stomach every time my phone *dinged*. I loved it.
So, bring it on 'Year Ago' game. I'm ready for you!
I'm ready to reminisce.
I'm ready to take that walk down memory lane.
I'm ready to have all those wonderful memories come flooding back...
...And the best part is, I have someone I can reminisce with now.
Such wonderful, precious times spent reliving memories with the one I love.
