Five Minute Friday: On Forgetting


GO:


Forgetting. It plagues me all the time it seems. Just today I asked John, "Did I already tell you about...?"





Forgetting. It seems to expand as your family expands. That well oiled laundry system I was bragging about just days ago. It's hit a snag. I forget to fold. Forget to add more clothes. Okay, who am I kidding, I remember that. I walk by it daily. Sometimes there are things I wish I COULD forget.





Forgetting. Too quickly I forget those "cute" things my children just said. I think, I'll remember that only to find MOMENTS later I'm trying to recall exactly what was so cute as I try to tell someone else.





Forgetting. I forget how Hannah sounded at two. I long not to forget those things. I forget how Grant looked as I cuddled him at night those many nights we were up late thanks to those early newborn days.





Forgetting. Why can't I forget those things I want to forget. Harsh words. Hurt feelings. Sad memories.






Forgetting. Why I have this blog. As a way to remember through words and pictures those times that pass too quickly.


STOP.

My post was almost exactly the same! It's funny how us mamas think so alike. It's so easy to forget these small things, and at the same time, long to not forget them.

Visiting from Five Minute Friday.

Isn't blogging great like that, a place to document those easily forgettable moments?
